Create Your Own Pillow Today

Driven to create traditional pieces with a twist, Candyce Grisham is an experienced and talented sewist who is the author of Dresden Quilt Blocks Reimagined, published by C&T Publishing. She teaches the art of dresdens in this course and the Creative Spark course Reimagined Dresdens. This course is a quick introduction to jump-start your own dresden journey.

This mini-course shows you how to make a basic dresden that you can add to a premade pillow cover. Perfect for last minutes gifts or a change-up in your decor. Candyce uses valentine prints in the class, but you can incorporate any holiday or seasonal fabrics of your choosing. Candyce gives you a quick overview of the materials and tools used and then guides you through the process of making your dresden. She shows you how to add your center circle before adding it to a premade pillow cover. Once you’ve mastered this project, you will be ready to venture into creating other styles of dresdens.
