Wonderful show! It's so exciting to see what Susan comes up with...Her enthusiasm is contagious. My guild Challenge competition just came out and I'm inspired to create something with Dresdens, the Cleveland way!

I just saw Susan last Friday in Houston and bought the book and rulers. I took a class from Susan many years ago at the Honeybee Retreat in Jacksonville FL, her techniques are so effective yet easy. Cannot wait to make a Dresden modern quilt.

I love this show. I had the privilege of meeting Susan at Houston Quilt Market 2019. As a new quilter I love this episode and can’t wait to read your book and use the new rulers I picked up. Keep it coming. I plan to use the larger ruler to make a mini Christmas tree skirt with some of my machine embroidery designs. Can’t wait. Any tips, please share.
