Student's Comment

Purple Quilt, Workshop

Hi Anelie:

Thanks so much for teaching us your technique for the Dresden plate block. I thoroughly enjoyed the class. It was very laid back. You did not push us too fast. You were lively and entertaining while you educated us and praised us for our progress. A very positive atmosphere, and for that I heartily thank you!

Heart Throb

This original design was a quilt featured in Quiltmaker’s Magazine Jan/Feb 2013.

Nine patch and Strip Piecing completes the Heart Block.
