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.
