OML Embroidery Quilting: In the Hoop Dresden Block (8×8)



Here is a fun project that is finished completely in the hoop!  One of my favorite quilt blocks – Dresden!   The quilting parts are hand-drawn and one of a kind!

For the example block, I used bright colors to make the quilt block stand out!  I happen to have one very bright jelly roll, so I created the size to make it easy to use jelly rolls for this project – it only takes a smallish piece, so you can possibly use your scraps for this.

You can also stitch 4 of these and put them together as a centerpiece or a set for Mug Rugs.  You could also stitch the 4 together with matching thread and a zig-zag stitch!  I think that would look amazing!

cut away if you are making a quilt square.  Don’t forget to leave a seam allowance!
