Rainy Days and Sun Days

Click on the quilt for a larger image.

Rainy Days and Sun Days is a free online quilt-along based on my book Distinctive Dresdens (the book is required to make the blocks). Monthly instructions will be posted starting January 2018.

Courtesy email registration at left, this is for counting purposes only and allows me to let you know when instructions are available for download during 2018. I will never share your email address.

This quilt-along consists of two quilts:
Rainy Day Umbrellas 72" x 84" a bed sized quilt easily made larger by adding a plain or pieced border.
Sun Day Parasols 42" x 72" a companion wall-hanging for the bed-sized quilt.

For those who like to challenge themselves, I will sporadically post instructions for a technique I call 'Advance Pre-Piecing'.

Attention Shop-owners:
Shop Guidelines (advance pre-piecing not included) are available on the Distinctive Dresdens product page at the Martingale wholesale website.
