Dresden Quilt Blocks Made Modern with Candyce Copp Grisham

My original goal was to create Dresden blocks by machine with as many different edge treatments as possible, including the straight, pointed, curved, and three-sided variations. What happened, was an explosion of blocks in different edges, fabrics, and designs—a modern translation of a traditional block.

Layouts made the design appear both unique and contemporary. The color combinations were endless, and each new plate was a thrill. I started mixing the edges, making pieced strips to cut apart, adding fun centers, layering the plates, and overlapping the edges. Eventually, I appliquéd my first Dresden block to a pieced background and the result became the basis for my Dresden explorations and teaching.
