What is a Double Wide Dresden? It's a fast, fun way to make classic Dresden blocks! These 36-degree Dresdens require only 10 wedges (instead of the traditional 20). Cut sewing time in half and create all the beauty with none of the fuss. There are no hand-appliqued centers--instead, stars appear with no raw edges! You can even cut wedges from strip sets. Make projects even easier with the companion Double Wide Dresden Ruler (not included).

This book is published by Me and My Sister Designs LLC, is distributed by Martingale, and is nonreturnable.

I've been following Barbara and Mary for quite a while now because I love their unique quilt and block designs. The quilts in The Double Wide Dresden Book can be made scrappy and colorful, whether with rainbow palette or many shades of the same color.

Regardless of the project you choose, you will have your quilt ready in no time because there is no hand applique' involved and, yet, there are no raw edges. The finished Dresden wedges or plates are perfect!

Mary Jacobson is the genius behind the Double Wide Dresden ruler and method of finishing the wedge. Then, the two sisters, continuing in their lifelong mission to create easier versions of traditional quilt blocks, worked their magic together in each design.

The book has easy-to-follow instructions, a "What if" section showing even more ways to work with the wedges, and their Tips and Tools. A must-have!
Such cool designs making a variation of the Dresden design!! So unique!
