Best-selling author Katja Marek has done *incredible* things with hexagons, inspiring thousands of quilters with her fun quilt-alongs and beginner-friendly approach to English paper piecing. So when we heard that for her next book Katja wanted to pay homage to the classic Dresden Plate, we couldn’t wait to see where her creativity would take her. Today, we get to show you—and it’s *incredible* all over again!

In *Distinctive Dresdens*, you’ll stitch Dresden Plate blocks like you’ve never seen them before—and in ways you may never have sewn them before! Katja shares a new English-paper-piecing technique that you can do by hand *or* machine. Play with 26 dazzling Dresden Plate quilt-block patterns that breathe new life into the classic Dresden wedge, transforming the design with fresh angles and points that will have you seeing stars, flowers, and more. You’ll be wowed by the dizzying array of Dresdens you can create.

Our favorite part of the book? The geometry—and the fact that we can skip calculating equations! Katja’s done all the work for you: simply trace, cut, and stitch for piecing that’s a perfect fit. Just for that, we’re giving Katja an honorary doctorate degree in geometry from Martingale!

In the introduction to *Distinctive Dresdens*, Katja says, *“I asked myself why the Dresden Plate always had to have 20 equal-sized petals, when there are so many more possibilities. In this book, I have tried to provide an answer to my own question. I wanted to create very distinctive blocks containing wedges with multiple and varying angles, sometimes with points inserted between the wedges for interest. To achieve this, I developed a system using the precise paper shapes that are so effective for English paper piecing, combined with the option of machine piecing to easily insert pointed fabric pieces between the wedges. *

*By bringing together my beloved English paper piecing, precise paper templates, and machine piecing for a new approach, I have added new chapters to the Dresden Plate story.”*

Don’t you just love how her brain works?

Here’s a peek at the 26 blocks in the book—and the six beautiful projects Katja’s included too!

Now, if you’re familiar with Katja’s previous book and calendar, you know she LOVES a good quilt-along. And you can bet she’s hosting one for *Distinctive Dresdens*! But we’ll all have to be patient—the samples for the quilt-along are debuting at Fall Quilt Market at the end of October. This is the *only *peek we can give you today:

—Sue on September 20, 2017My math is a little wobbly at times.

—Jan Murray on September 20, 2017Using the mathematics itself is not a problem because my university training was in mathematics. But knowing how and when to apply what can create some sticky situations! This is a very interesting book that I would use often.

—barb h on September 20, 2017A whiz, as long as my calculator is handy!!

—Nancy Lewis on September 20, 2017Not wobbly, but not a whiz either.

—Jan on September 20, 2017I am the worst. I just don’t take the time to learn. I’d rather be stitching.

—AnnaMarie Werner on September 20, 2017Most days I am confident in my quilting math as long as I have a cheat sheet to refer. Other days it seems like I forget even adding a 1/2 inch. I have her Hexagon book and would love to add this one to my collection. Can’t wait for the details on the quilt along.

—Jodi on September 20, 2017Some days I’m a whiz! Some days I’m wobbly, or worse! Sometimes I think I have it figured out then my block looks all wonky and I have to go back to the drawing board. Thanks for the chance to win, I think I’m like everyone and I love Dresden plates.

—Jackie Radovich on September 20, 2017A whiz most of the time, but definitely not all the time! I enjoy dresdens. Glad someone took the time to play around with the pattern

—Nancy Bart on September 20, 2017I’m a little wobbly – I check my figures three times – guess it comes from being a bookkeeper all my life

—Kathy Luehrs on September 20, 2017My math is always suspect – I’m in "the worst" category! I love the Dresden plate block, and it’s on my bucket list for a future project.

—Janet G on September 20, 2017I’m a whiz, engineering brain.

—Jill on September 20, 2017"A little wobbly" is a nice way to put it. I’m not quite "the worst", but when it comes to angles, I really struggle, and have to concentrate and pre-position before I sew in order to reduce the number of mistakes. But they tell us to challenge our brains by doing difficult tasks, so I do it anyway!

—Carol Johnson on September 20, 2017I’m a ‘worker’s, but I manage by always adding at least 1/4 yard to any purchase I make.😏 Plus I always then have plenty of scraps! That’s not a bad thing is it?😁

—Lynne Kubik on September 20, 2017I am a bit down from whiz, however my husband is a whiz. If I can’t figure out the math problem he can! I love ❤️ Dresden plates, probably my favorite block to make. 😍

—Marilynn on September 20, 2017Not being very good at calculations, this method looks like something I would love to try. I’ve not been a fan of the Dresden, but this method definitely appeals to me and I would love to make one of these creations.

—Jackie Radovich on September 20, 2017My math skills are a little wobbly. Fortunately, though, I have a wonderful quilt buddy who is a quilt math whiz and is always willing to work through the process for me. Thanks for a peak of the incredible dresdans!

—Marlene on September 20, 2017John – goofy auto correct! Not ‘worker’s’😣… ‘worst’!! And I had to go back and correct it THIS time too!!

—Lynne Kubik on September 20, 2017I’m not a whiz, but I’m not the worst! I’m a little more than wobbly though. I just love when the math is all figured out for me! These Dresden plates are so interesting! I hope I win!

—Sharon Schipper on September 20, 2017Dresden Plate, and Grandmother’s Fan my all time favorite blocks, I’ve done some of both, and I so admire Katja’s creativity! I’ve done 3D bow tie blocks, saw the 3D Dresdens and wow. I never paid attention to 20 equals: I’ve done tree skirts and others with multiples of 4, usually 16, and the same with fans, making them up as I go along: brown paper bags make great huge templates for tree skirts! The dresden rulers make the math not as intimidating and I bought Nancy Zieman’s recently, ready for a new challenge!

If I have time on my side I can be a whiz but mostly a bit wobbly. My first quilt was a Dresden Plate and I’d love to make another, but change it up a bit. This book looks like the perfect little helper.

—Sharron Coxon on September 20, 2017Math has always been my Achilles’ heel, but I can limp along with what I know. Three Dresden plate quilts later, I’m definitely wobbly.

—C. Delostrinos on September 20, 2017I’m a little wobbly in the math department. The variations of the Dresden plate are beautiful.

—Lois on September 20, 2017When it comes to quilt math I am a ok, I would have paid more attention in school if they mentioned I would need to be good at it for quilting.

—Shirley Brys on September 20, 2017I am the worst. I end up folding paper blocks into the shape of the pieces I want and then making templates to size. It works but is very time consuming with lots of tries before it comes out right.

—joan Kowalsky on September 20, 2017I’m a math whiz!

—Lin on September 20, 2017I have to admit that I am a little wobbly. I second guess myself into doing measurements more than a few times. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

—Alesha K Klein on September 20, 2017I’m good at quilt math but always double and triple check to make sure.

—Janna on September 20, 2017I get math, but because I work with math all day, I always have to refresh the measurements and check twice before cutting.

—Angie Little on September 20, 2017I am the worst at the math. Lucky for me, my hubby is good at math (and he knows that I am hopeless).

—Diane G on September 20, 2017Quilt Math… One of my favorite parts of quilt design & assembly. Of course I always add (that’s math!) an extra yard to every fabric I’m buying…. and add (More Math) on rows and blocks to nearly every quilt I make. Love the Dresden Plate variations, and I wouldn’t subtract any of it’s wonderful ideas.

—Marianne on September 20, 2017Between a whiz and a bit wobbly. I usually get it right, but have been known to come up short of fabric a few times.

—Karen DH on September 20, 2017I am a whiz! I love math, always have! The book looks fabulous!

—Shari K. on September 20, 2017I find myself actually enjoying the math involved with quilting and have become rather good with it….not quite a wiz, but I enjoy it. I love the way Katja manipulated the wedge sizes to create such interesting blocks! I need to get myself a copy of her book, thanks for the chance to win!

—Kathy Swanson on September 20, 2017I’m a little wobbly. We are often told to "measure twice, cut once", well I up that to measure 3-4 times and then cut!

—Diane Koprowski-Pfeifer on September 20, 2017I am the worst. I second guess myself almost every time.

—Lisa on September 20, 2017I’m not too bad at quilt math – I often wish I could find my high school geometry teacher and tell her that it’s the one branch of math I use on a regular basis!

—Susan Stanton on September 20, 2017Me and math are not friends I am saved by my friends are the quilt shop yea for them

—Mardell rogers on September 20, 2017I could probably do the quilt math but most of the time I like to trust the work that someone else has already done for me and take that part out of my quilting equation.

—Liz F. on September 20, 2017I am generally pretty good with quilt block math, but my 1/4 inch seams are sometimes not accurate – which still lands me in trouble! I love the blocks in this new Dresden book!

—Elizabeth McDonald on September 20, 2017A whiz most of the time – but without my morning coffee – I can definitely wobble! Love the variations of the plates in this book.

—sonja on September 20, 2017I am a little wobbly when it comes to quilting math. Thank goodness for a calculator on my phone, IPad and desktop. My secret weapon with the math is a hubby who is a retired building (framing carpentry) contractor and is patiently willing to explain angles and measurements to me over and over!

—Terri E on September 20, 2017i’m wobbly but I adore these blocks!!!

—Ali on September 20, 2017I’m totally the worst at math.

—Sheila Bales on September 20, 2017Math presents a challenge and I’m ready to take it on! And as shown in this book; well worth the effort.

—Rose Griffith on September 20, 2017I’m probably the worst at math, I’ve been trying for 60+ yrs and still can’t seem to do it right. I am a fan of Katja Merek though, and that helps me not feel like a complete failure.

—Diana Simpson on September 20, 2017I always think I’m terrible, but then I surprise myself.

—Nita on September 20, 2017Hi,I’m the worst>that’s why I have CHARTS on hand! Thanks for sharing a neat Book Giveaway!

—LINDA on September 20, 2017When it comes to quilt math, I am a little bit a whiz!and a little bit a wobbly.

—Rommy van Houten on September 20, 2017A bit wobbly. I think anyone who quilts has to have at least some math skills, but I’m certainly no expert!

—Cathy on September 20, 2017My quilt math is wobbly.

—Christy on September 20, 2017I am the worst. I rely on written quilt books and instructions.

—Sue on September 20, 2017I am so wobbly when it comes to math of any kind! I need to have the measurements right there in front of me. I love the Dresden plate block. I would love to try some of your designs. I currently have two Dresden/Hexie tops in the construction process. They are so fun.

—Judy Abeel on September 20, 2017I’m usually ok with quilt math but can still make simple mistakes so I always recheck! Love these dresdens and already know where I’d hang my quilt!!

—Jody M on September 20, 2017I am a little wobbly on the math.

—Elilzabeth Olson on September 20, 2017I’m a "little wobbly" at best. However, I have a notebook about where to find the measurements for various sizes and how to reduce and enlarge. It helps.

—Sharon K on September 20, 2017When it comes to quilt math, I guess I could be classified as wobbly. I do the math, think I have it right, and then do it over again. I may do the math half a dozen times before I am comfortable cutting. This book and the patterns look amazing and so much fun to do.

—Barbara Pryga on September 20, 2017The worst. Thanks for the opportunity

—Sandi Kelly on September 20, 2017I had to be good at the math, including the geometry, because I started quilting in Ireland when all we had to work with was scissors and homemade cardboard templates!

—Elizabeth A Monahan on September 20, 2017I am the WORST with quilt math! Lol…..and there really is no excuse. And I don’t trust my math even using a calculator and have to make a sketch with the measurements. I loved math in school!

—Lisa Kitzmiller on September 20, 2017The VERY worst!

—Nugget on September 20, 2017I’ve never seen such unique and interesting dresdens. The pictures are beautiful. I would read every pattern with a smile on my face.

—Sandra Rosier on September 20, 2017I love to do the math of quilts! Who knew that being able to determine the hypotenuse (sp?) of a right triangle would come in handy some day.

—Rose Haury on September 20, 2017I am so a little wobbly in my quilt math😬

—Paula on September 20, 2017Math was my favorite subject in school, so I guess you can say I am a Whizz

—Rose Pullen on September 20, 2017A little wobbly. Though if I sit and really think I can usually get it. 🙂

—Jessica on September 20, 2017I’m not sure that I am a Whiz, but I did like math at school. What lovely Dresden plate variations – well done, Katherine!

—Gail G on September 20, 2017A little wobbly.

—Sabrina van Ginkel on September 20, 2017Oops, Katja – I said Katherine – my apologies!!

—Gail G on September 20, 2017A little wobbly… Measure twice, cut once! I do love dresdens though!

—Kate on September 20, 2017Most of the time I am spot on for the math, but not too long ago I ended up with way more pieces cut than I needed. I guess it depends on how much fresh air I’ve gotten that day. Even when I calculated three times, and different ways, sometimes I end up with an oops. But it just leaves more scraps for the next project so no biggie.

—Terry on September 20, 2017I am a little wobbly but can figure measurements if I take my time. Just love the dresden block.

—Bonnie Heyblom on September 20, 2017Math~ I can do it … Not fun for me though. I like the math thought out for me ahead of time. So I guess I’m Wobbly~

—Anita Jackson on September 20, 2017I’m wobbly, but trying to learn tips to make it easier for my brain cells to work! Thank you, Linda S Pewaukee WI

—Linda S on September 20, 2017A little wobbly

—AS on September 20, 2017I’m wobbly….but verging toward whiz!

—Teresa Marler on September 20, 2017I’m pretty good at math as long as we’re talking squares, rectangles and triangles. Dresdens require a ruler for me. Love the book. I can’t wait to try the gorgeous patterns.

—Judy Purcell on September 20, 2017A little wobbly!

—Susan M on September 20, 2017A little wobbly is what I am when it comes to math. I want someone else to do it for me.

—JaniceCarole on September 20, 2017It seems to depend on the day, sometimes I am a whiz and others I am as wobbly as all get out.

—Caryn on September 20, 2017I am the worst wobbly at math. Always have been. But the amazing aides at katjas quit shoppe are always willing to bail me out. Love this new book!

—Roanda bartley on September 20, 2017A little wobbly for quilting but OK with other kinds of math.

—Terry on September 20, 2017I’m a bit wobbly and always double check with a call to my math whiz sister 😉

—Ashlie on September 20, 2017I am the worst at math. Have never liked math; that is why I buy designs by those who do it best!!

—Mary Ann on September 20, 2017I am the worst at math; have always hated math.

—Mary Ann Bonne on September 20, 2017Wobbly…but thank goodness my husband was a math teacher! I even called him from my work one day to ask him about a formula I was trying to come up with for my excel spreadsheet!!!

—Marvelyn Adams on September 20, 2017The absolute worst.

—Joy Dickson on September 20, 2017Looking forward to making Dresden quilts from Katja’s book!

—Doreen Frederick on September 20, 2017Wobbly – I can figure it out eventually, but it takes a while. I’ve been wanting to do a Dresden, but haven’t gotten a round to it yet. These are spectacular.

—Mona on September 20, 2017I have always loved math ..so guess I am whiz…love the challenge of your patterns!!

—Lois Stoltenberg on September 20, 2017Enjoyed math in school, but a little wobbly compared to those days! Would love to learn how to make some variations on the Dresden block.

—Diane on September 20, 2017a whiz

—Corliss Okerstrom on September 20, 2017I’d have to say I’m kind of between a whiz and a little wobbly when it comes to math. I always keep a calculator handy for double-checking.

—Cindy M on September 20, 2017A little Wobbly!

—Bridget Donelson on September 20, 2017The worst, when in doubt, buy extra fabric!

—laura on September 20, 2017I’m hopeless I ask the grandchildren

—Maureen on September 20, 2017The worst, I work it out on paper and still end up with the wrong dimensions. It is soooooo.frustrating. I am really looking forward to this book.

—Sharon on September 20, 2017Maybe not the worst but more than a little wobbly.

—Elaine Bray on September 20, 2017I am in between worst and wobbly and at 70 years of age I want to keep my brain active so I just keep trying! I love

—Linda on September 20, 2017Katjas hexis and am just finishing up her last quilt-a-long. Sew much fun!

Whiz, for sure. And when I need back up, I ask my husband, a mathematician by trade, for help.

—Janey on September 20, 2017I’m a little more than wobbly!

—Debbie Holley on September 20, 2017A whiz, math was my favourite subject in school. But I don’t mind that Katja has it all figured out for me!

—MoeWest on September 20, 2017I do pretty well most of the time but to choose your levels I’d have to say a little wobbly. Thanks for the chance!

—Marie Eddins on September 20, 2017I am more than a little wobbly – simple squares and rectangles are OK but once angles get involved it gets pretty messy. Since the Dresden Plate is one of my favorites, having such a beautiful book that takes away the calculating would be awesome.

—Lynn Darcy on September 20, 2017For a person who struggled through some math courses, I would have to say I am a toss-up between whiz and wobbly. There are just some equations that my mind struggles with (never could get calculus or many statistical equations either). Love Dresden blocks.

—Nancy N on September 20, 2017When it comes to quilt math: I am the WORDT!!! I have never even tried it- only followed patterns where all that was done for me! Joy

—Joy Stone on September 20, 2017I’m a little wobbly. Have to figure a few times over to feel that I’m right on…then sometimes I’m still not.

—Cindy French on September 20, 2017A little wobbly–I can do the math, but I don’t like it and usually try to take shortcuts when possible…

—Dena P on September 20, 2017The worst unfortunately

—Kathleen Agar-Ross on September 20, 2017When it comes to quilt math, I am a whiz. I can usually change the size of quilts or blocks easily.

—Deena on September 20, 2017Love math quilts and love using math in my sewing and life!

—Margaret Andolshek on September 20, 2017A little wobbly

—Betty Gebhardt on September 20, 2017I’m great at Quilt math! Love these dresdens. Thanks for the chance to win.

—Cheri Cuff on September 20, 2017I’m a little wobbly. If’s it’s basic squares and rectangles, OK, but once I get triangles or other different shapes, it gets complicated. I think my grade 10 math teacher passed me just so he wouldn’t have to hear all my wrong answers for another year!

—Eva Hansen on September 20, 2017When it comes to quilt math, I am THE WORST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need all the help I can get in this department. Although quilting has brought me along farther than I ever imagined!

—Marion Lisko on September 20, 2017When it comes to math, I’m often a whiz, but sometimes a bit wobbly! I’d like to say I always ‘measure twice, and cut once’, but sometimes I’m in a hurry and end up cutting (or ripping out) more than I’d like. These new Dresdens by Katja Marek are absolutely gorgeous and I’d love to win a copy of her book!

—Shari Harrison on September 20, 2017I’m between wobbly and whiz. Luckily, there’s a friend in my quilt group who’s an absolute math genius. Whenever one of us has a problem, we know just whom to consult! My group and I would be very happy if I won this book.

—Bette on September 20, 2017A little wobbly, since you didn’t offer the option of "Okay at it but don’t enjoy it because I want to get to the parts that are more fun."

—Margery on September 20, 2017I’d say I’m pretty decent when it comes to quilt math – but then, I’ll measure and figure things multiple times before I start cutting anything. I hate to let good fabric go to waste.

—Gina Courter on September 20, 2017I absolutely LOVE quilt math..so I am a Whiz!!!

—Kathy Timmons on September 20, 2017I would enjoy the chance to get my hands on this Dresden book.

Thanks

I am the worst! And the problem is that I think I’ve done it right and find out later (usually after cutting fabric) that I was totally wrong.

—Sydney on September 20, 2017I am a little wobbly with some quilt math. I love this new book by Katja. It is always fun to see what is up next with her.

—Linda Phelps on September 20, 2017Quilting math? I am the worst 🙁 Dresden’s are my all time favorite, alas, always 20 same-size wedges. This book looks amazing! Thanks for the chance to win it!

—Dawn Hollingsworth on September 20, 2017Quilt math – I am a whiz, with the help of EQ7 and lots of scratch paper.

—Sally on September 20, 2017A bit wobbly, I’m afraid – working on math skills all the time! What beautiful blocks – definitely want to try some.

—Ellen on September 20, 2017Wow, these are amazing! When it comes to math I’m a little wobbly and it makes it so much easier to have it all done for me!

—Susan Griffith on September 20, 2017Oh I’m very definitely the worst, I go round & round in circles still not being able to do it, then ‘bingo’ 3am I’m awake with the answer, but find it fails me again…..just no hope, lol

—Wendy on September 20, 2017A little wobbly.

—Linda Wrede on September 20, 2017I am the worst at math, always have been. And I love making Dresden plates. And I must say, the author of this book looks like she could be my sister! I swear she looks like family :o)

—Kathleen Kingsbury on September 20, 2017Thanks for the opportunity to win!

My husband is a math whiz so he figures any math I need on quilts. I’m not to bad myself.

—Linda Wrede on September 20, 2017I love math, but am a little wobbly when I do quilt math. Things usually turn out okay because I double or triple check everything.

—Kiki on September 20, 2017The worst! I have a book that takes the math out of quilting that is by my side at all times. To change a block size, I use EQ.

—Linda on September 20, 2017I am a bit wobbly….calculating in not my forte and really cringe when I have to!! But I do love the look of the more complex, math calculated quilts!!

—Patti Levine on September 20, 2017A bit wobbly, and usually double triple check! Looking forward to the quilt along.

—Linda isfeld on September 20, 2017A little wobbly, but I can usuually figure things out if I give it a little time.

—Deborah B. on September 20, 2017I am a whiz…….Thank you for the give away

—Magdalini Hatziioannidi on September 20, 2017I’m the worst! Math is really not my friend. But I really love English paper piecing in quilt projects!

—Stephanie L. on September 20, 2017Oop! A typo…I pressed submit a moment too soon.

—Deborah B. on September 20, 2017Answer: I am a math whiz, geek, nerd, however you want to label me! That doesn’t mean I am not excited about Katja Marek’s new book. I love her design sense and I’m currently an EPP beginner doing one of her current QALs. Love it!

—Michele Bender on September 20, 2017My math absolutely "SUCKS". Just when I think I have the correct answer the block turns out too small. If it was too large I could cut it down.

—Kathy J on September 20, 2017I am a bit of a whiz and sometimes wobbly! I would love to try some of the Dresden patterns!

—Chris on September 20, 2017Math has always been easy for me, so for quilts it’s not no problem.i guess that makes me a "whiz"!

—Brenda Montgomery on September 20, 2017When it comes to quilt math, I am way out of my depth and often drown (in half-finished and really strange-looking blocks). That’s why I do mostly paper-pieced quilts, because they are good therapy for my brain deficits in the math department. I’d love to do a Dresden quilt but have never dared to make the attempt.

—Pat Taniashvili on September 20, 2017Wobbly. That’s why I buy books and patterns. Let someone else figure it out. I know what I like and I love Katja’s new book. Thanks for chance to win it.

—Doreen Borck on September 20, 2017It depends on the day. LOL! Usually, I’m a math whiz but some days I can’t even add 2+2!! Math is one of my favorite things!

—Selene York on September 20, 2017I’m a "little wobbly". But would love to make a Dresden plate quilt x

—Sue on September 20, 2017I’m a math wiz in my head, and on paper! I’m a little wobbly with my seams when I get in a hurry. And, I’m sure I’m the worst at something, but I haven’t figured that out, yet! These blocks are beautiful! Can’t wait to try some of them. 🙂

—Anita Bradshaw on September 20, 2017Not even going to try!! If someone already did the math, I’d much rather spend my time sewing. Besides, I usually make a teeny tiny mistake that messes up the whole thing! Thanks to the people who do the math for me.

—Kris on September 20, 2017Great with math until I try to figure out fabric need or enlarge a quilt

—Shirley on September 20, 2017I am a bit wobbly with math for quilting. Also, I am a bit wobbly on my feet. The Dresden pattern is one of my favorite. The new book would be wonderful to own and use. Thank you.

—Mary Ann Kaeppel on September 20, 2017I am the worst. I have an app to help me or I ask my mother in law who is teaching me to quilt.

—Michelle Mendes on September 20, 2017I’m a bit wobbly with my quilt math.

—Cassie G on September 20, 2017I used to be a whiz!

—Kelli on September 20, 2017I’m pretty good at quilt math, but saying I’m a whiz may be overstating it — lol.

—Karen Seitz on September 20, 2017I taught math for numerous years so I guess I don’t have a problem with it when I am quilting.

—Jean on September 20, 2017I’m a little wobbly in my old age but calculators help!

—Judy Jones on September 20, 2017Oh how math is not my friend! I can figure it a couple of times and get just as many answers that don’t match.

—Diana Allen on September 20, 2017I’m a bit wobbly. Sometimes it comes easy and sometimes I must rethink it and redo it.

—Carol lucas on September 20, 2017A lille wobbly in the math department. Though I’m not afraid to dive in when I need to!

—Shirley Ratliff on September 20, 2017I am very good at quilt math, but it’s even better if someone else has already figured it all out!

—Julie in GA on September 20, 2017My math has become quite a bit stronger since I started quilting. I love the challenge of taking a big block and drafting it down to a smaller size. My daughter saw me working out a smaller block plan and she said you do need geometry in "real life".

—Loretta B on September 20, 2017I am somewhere between wobbly and "good golly, how did I come up with that?" Most of the time I get it right in the end, though!

—Brenda Sanders on September 20, 2017I’m a little wobbly at higher math like algebra, but given time and a calculator I can usually find the answer.

—Carol Ellingson on September 20, 2017I’m a whiz, although it helps that I’m also a retired high school math teacher.

—Kim Rhody on September 20, 2017I have always been good at general math, but with quilting I do have wobbles and stupid mistakes do happen!

—Gisela Buitendag on September 20, 2017When it comes to math, I am getting better. If we (meaning us ladies) had math instructors who had used quilting to teach math instead of obscure and weird techniques, we would have loved it more and been better at it for the rest of our lives, IMHO! Thanks for a great offer, I hope I win.

—Barbara Dahl on September 20, 2017I am a bit of a whiz at math. My friends always have me figure out the math for any quilt projects that they are working on. I love Katja’s books! Already have both the New Hexagon, and the New Hexagon Perpetual calendar. I would love to add her latest book to my collection!

—Katie Doggart on September 20, 2017I am usually a whiz, on some days I am wobbly!!

—Shari Carter on September 20, 2017very wobbly, some days worse than others

—Sue Cahill on September 20, 2017I’m wobbly about math, but then my engineer of a husband helps me along the way!

—Kathleen H on September 20, 2017A little wobbly. I recently made 60 more blocks than I needed for a quilt — and I did the math several times! Jeesh.

—Diana Steverson on September 20, 2017Basic math is what I excel at. Fractions, decimals, multiplying and dividing. It sure helps when quilting and to shrink a pattern down. I love mini!

—Brenda E on September 20, 2017I am terrible with math.

—Faye on September 20, 2017a little wobbly

—Bonnie Davis on September 20, 2017If only I was as good at quilting as I was at math

—OHSue on September 20, 2017Sometimes a whiz and other times a little wobbly!

—Diane on September 20, 2017I’m a math whizz!

—Tamara Isaacs-Smith on September 20, 2017A little wobbly

—Amy on September 20, 2017the WORST!!!! I NEED HELP:)

—Linda on September 20, 2017What a great looking book! I’m a bit wobbly with my maths 🙂

—Raewyn on September 20, 2017A whiz sometimes and wobbly at others. Great ideas for spicing up the dresden plate.

—Glenda Britten on September 20, 2017I am the worst, since I am a beginner. This book gets me excited about Dresden plate quilts. Before, they were not all that appealing to me.

—Susan on September 20, 2017I’m pretty good at quilt math, but when I get stuck, I get my daughter to work it out. She’s a draftsman, shares my love of quilting and can calculate anything!

—Terri in BC on September 20, 2017Like so many others, I prefer to let others "do the math!" I am soooo wobbly.

—Kathy on September 20, 2017I am the worst!

—Lisa Radke on September 20, 2017I am a little wobbly but getting better. This book would be a great help.

—Joyce on September 20, 2017I am somewhere between the worst and the wobbly! Seems it’s taking me longer to do the quilt math😨Looks like a good book to add to my library I have The New Hexagon and it is a wonderful book that has helped me out as I’m rediscovering quilting after retiring Inara

—Inara on September 20, 2017I am a little bit wobbly.

—Tori Syverson on September 20, 2017I think I’m a little wobbly. The book looks like fun!

—kathy on September 20, 2017A little wobbly for sure!! Lol!

—Crystal Harrison on September 20, 2017I love Dresden blocks!!

I am a whiz–math is almost the best part of quilting

—sharon on September 20, 2017I live Dresdens. All kinds and sizes. By hand and by machine! My math is pretty good. Not a whiz but not wobbly. I guess I am okay up until calculus. I frankly could not figure out why I needed a derivative and what I was supposed to do with it! Thank goodness calculators have rid us of these!

—Judi R on September 20, 2017I must say I am the worst.

—Kim Brownell on September 20, 2017A little wobbly.

—Gwendolyn Clark on September 20, 2017A little wobbly, but still give it a try.

—Kaye Temanson on September 20, 2017I am the worst with math. I have to draw everything out as I am a very visual learner. Love Katja’s books. Thanks for the draw.

—Edith Gorzo on September 20, 2017The worst!

—Ann Austin on September 20, 2017I can’t tell you the number of times in my life, having math problems has caused me to mess up or miss out on!

I am in between wobbly and worst; however, I give it a try anyway. I enjoy trying out new quilt blocks but the blocks don’t always fit correctly due to my lack of quilting math abilities. I will just keep trying!

—Lucy on September 20, 2017Absolutely the worst! Thank you for this great giveaway. I’ve been working on Katja’s Millefiore quilt and greatly enjoying her designs. Very challenging!

—Tanya Weiss on September 20, 2017I’m a little wobbly

—Karen on September 20, 2017I am not a whiz, but I can eventually figure it out.

—Judy T on September 20, 2017A little wobbly. I have a friend with a math degree that helps me.

—Collette Morton on September 20, 2017I am probably a little wobbly, but I keep trying.

—Cecilia on September 20, 2017A little wobbly

—lainey Stewart on September 20, 2017Math was my best subject in school so I’m all about quilt math. That’s part of the fun!

—Lisa Marie on September 20, 2017A little wobbly

—Chris Grisey on September 20, 2017a little wobbly

—Bonnie on September 20, 2017Absolutely terrible with quilt math! And would love a copy of this book!

—Nancy on September 20, 2017I am a little wobbly. can sometimes figure it out and sometimes I CAN NOT.

—beth daniels on September 20, 2017I thought I’d give myself a little credit and say a little wobbly but in all honesty I’m the worst.

—Liz J on September 20, 2017I love math. I would love a copy of this book. The Dresden blocks look like they would be fun to piece.

—Nancy on September 20, 2017LOLOL Well yes, I’m a little wobbly without a calculator but your never too old to learn lets face it : )

—lyn lewis on September 20, 2017A little wobbly, and that is why I appreciate pre-drawn patterns!

—Beverly Fugazzi on September 20, 2017I was always good with algebra and geometry, so I guess I’m leaning towards being a whiz. I love these dresden plate blocks. Thanks for the chance to win it.

—Sharon on September 20, 2017I would have to say – ‘I’m a little wobbly!!" I can eventually figure out how much material I need and get the right pieces cut to measurement……BUT….most times I believe it was just sure luck! My last project I had cut the pieces and miss cut the outer pieces. When I started putting the pieces together I was a half inch too small and had to search the fabric stores near me to replace the pieces I cut wrong!!!

—Barbara on September 20, 2017A little wobbly mo s t of the time. Love those Dresdens.

—Kerry Grose on September 20, 2017Almost a whiz. I love being able to use that geometry we all thought would be so unless back when we were in seventh grade.

—jean on September 20, 2017When it comes to math I was always good and worked at a bank for 20 years and worked at an accounting firm for another 25 years but when it comes to quilt math I am still a bit wobbly. More I do the better I am getting though.

—Sandra Gregoire on September 20, 2017I’m somewhere between quilt math whiz and a little wobbly, but even if I’ve done all the math spot on, I will usually buy more fabric than needed and make an extra block or two – just in case.

—Nelda Mohr on September 20, 2017I got such a chuckle from everyone’s comments. . . I used to think I was pretty good with math and numbers but I am challenged by quilt math sometimes! Her Dresdens are so wonderful that I’d be willing to give the math another go. . . nice to know Katja’s got our back!

—Kathy Wray on September 20, 2017We are chuckling over here too, Kathy – I’m feeling glad I’m not the only one who feels wobbly-or-worse about math! 🙂 -JennyI’m a Whiz!!!!

—jennifer on September 20, 2017I am the worst, but I am great at FREE and I’d love to accept this free gift!

—Wilda Ernst on September 20, 2017I am a little wobbly but can usually figure it out.

—Rita Miller on September 20, 2017I am a little ‘wobbly’!

—Margo M on September 20, 2017Have to say a little wobbly! At times I get myself confused and ask my husband(who is a math whiz) if I did it right!! Other times I am fine. Keeps us on our toes! Oh, my sister teaches 6th grade and uses me as an example to her class if they are having issues with grasping a math concept. She tells them "I have a sister that struggled with math in school (that’s me, I fail geometry!) and you should see what she does now!" We all evolve!

—Sue Galasso on September 20, 2017i’m a little wobbly. not too bad if i take care using my eye, brain and the good old protractor i managed to keep after the kids left school and home. LOL. i do a bit of fiddling with the numbers and usually get something pretty close so it looks much the same and the numbers fit. once i get that sorted out, i need a wee nap. i am watching out for Katjas Dresdens now. 😀

—Jeanne Aka-nzlstar on September 20, 2017I’m a little wobbly – my brain has good days and bad days where Math is concerned and I never know which sort it will be until I try. Everyone can benefit from a Guardian Angel when it comes to Quilt Math.

—Deborah on September 20, 2017What a beautiful book and ideas. I’m a little bit wobbly when it comes to maths!

—Elizabeth Hicks on September 20, 2017A little wobbly! Usually I can figure it out but sometimes I am stumped!!

—Diane on September 20, 2017My math is not too bad–could be a little wobbly at times!

—Barb K. on September 20, 2017bjkaup(at)(abbnebraska)(dot)(com)

I love patchwork, quilting and sewing all sorts. Katja’s new Dresdens are stunning and I can’t wait to make some. My maths is a little wobbly but I always persevere and follow the pattern. Another beautiful addition to her collection.

—Deb Treweek on September 20, 2017A little wobbly. But I love being able to goggle anything. So excited to try some dresdens!

—Julie Woolston on September 20, 2017When it comes to quilt math…I cheat off my neighbor. But no one is looking, right? (I am the worst, but at least I recognize that!!)

—Laura on September 20, 2017Mostly wobbly!

—Anne Taylor on September 20, 2017I am the absolute worst. Once I figured out how much fabric I would need to piece a queen top and it added up to 28 yards! I was pretty sure that wasn’t correct.

—Trudy stubbs on September 20, 2017The worst. Had a stroke during the night the side effect was having to learn to read and do math again.

—Gayle on September 20, 2017Geometry was my favorite math subject in school. So I would consider myself a math whiz. However, it does take time…time away from the actual quilting!

—The Lisa Marie on September 20, 2017A little wobbly, bug getting better! I was horrible at math in school and look at me now, doing geometry!😜 Thank you quilting!

—Sara Agnor on September 20, 2017I have always been a wobbly quilt mathematician especially when it comes to angles. Can’t count the many times over the decades that I longingly wished I had paid more attention in high school Geometry Class.

—Mary Beth Smetzer on September 20, 2017I’m no whiz, but I usually can do okay with quilt math.

—Karen A on September 20, 2017I am willing to give the math a try because I love Dresdens.

—Debbie Eide on September 20, 2017I am the worst! Luckily for me I am married to a wiz! 😉

—Marsha Bradford on September 20, 2017I have always loved math, so changing sizes of quilt patterns is no problem. Does that make me a whiz!?

—B J Kinney on September 20, 2017Before Katja’s Dresden process, my 39 year old would do all the calculations for ANY quilt for me. Now I won’t be afraid! Thank you Katja, you are a goddess!

—Shelley Tsuji on September 20, 2017A little wobbly

—Denise Campbell on September 20, 2017I’m a whiz! Loved geometry in school, but I get lazy. Why do the math when someone else has already done it?

—LynnsInStitches on September 20, 2017I’m a bit wobbly, usually I forget to add 1/4 inch on one side or other 🙂

—Tatiana Kishchinskaya on September 20, 2017Thanks for the giveaway!

—Judy on September 20, 2017Math – yuck. Not my favorite thing. I may not be the worst at quilt math but I’m not very good either!

—Melba on September 20, 2017I am a Whiz! Quilt geometry stretches my brain and my skills.

—Janet on September 20, 2017Can’t wait to get my hands on this book to see where it will take

my imagination!

I am pretty much a wizz, but I always buy extra fabric, as we all know "you can never have too much fabric"

—Liz Sumner on September 20, 2017Absolutely the worst!

—Stacy Thomas on September 20, 2017I’m one of the worst, when it comes to math. I always have to much or to little. Love her Dresdens plates. I didn’t realize you could do more with them. So you can teach an old person new quilt blocks. Would really like to win this one😁

—Shirley Smith on September 20, 2017Hi I am a little wobbly, especially when things get intricate……I love Katja’s work…Noelene

—Noelene Winter on September 20, 2017I’m a whiz kid – most days! The math works til somewhere down the road I change my mind about settinGS or colors, or……! lol

—Joyce on September 20, 2017I am absolutely the worst! Sometimes I am able to get my math major daughter to help me but she isn’t a quilter. I hope I win this book!!

—Gloria on September 20, 2017My answer to your question about math is "Good grief , how

—Kathleen Gilbert on September 20, 2017In the world did you come up with that answer?

My brother has a Ph. D. In biostatistics which is very math based.

I’m lucky my 2+2 came up 4.

I’m a bit wobbly, calculators are such wonderful things, and then there’s all the charts with mesurements on them. But I know when it comes to half-square triangles I don;t worry about the small measurement, I always cut a little bigger then square them off to true after for perfect to fit squares.

—Christine Weir on September 20, 2017A little woobly.

—Debbie Rehberg on September 20, 2017I am wobbly and maybe even the worst at quilt math – i actually always try to find a friend tbat’s a whiz to help me out 🙂

—Jackie Warner on September 20, 2017I am pretty bad especially with quilt math. Seems my figures are either too large or too small.

—Heather on September 20, 2017I need all the help I can get, so any help is very much appreciated

—Jane Wyatt on September 20, 2017I would say I’m borderline wobbly. Some days the brain works better than others.

—Annette F. on September 20, 2017I am the worst! My maths is ok but when it comes to quilting I struggle with inches as i am a metric girl haha

—suzanne on September 20, 2017I love it when the maths is all done for you! I love the dresden plate but haven’t plucked up the courage to do one yet….

A little wobbly!

—Sally Atkinson on September 20, 2017I would have to say my math skills are "wobbly." Looking forward to this book. Really enjoyed making the Milliefiorie quilt that she designed.

—Carole on September 20, 2017I’m a whiz at math, at least the 7th grade variety. 30 plus years in the classroom. I’m always good for something free!

—Judy on September 20, 2017I am a little wobbly. I am afraid of not having enough or making a mistake,so I get more fabric than I need. This is why I like to do scrap quilts. These Dresden plate quilts would be great for my scraps.

—Sara Bates on September 20, 2017I’m a little wobbly!! 😊😊

—Maribeth Morgan on September 20, 2017I need all the help I can get from other experts – do so admire people who find the maths easy

—Cindy G on September 20, 2017I know math…….however, I have a hard time cutting into my fabrics because I might want to use it on another project…HELP!!

—Lisa Lamie on September 20, 2017Am the worst that is why I stick to the measure twice, cut one rule!

—Vivienne on September 20, 2017I LOVE quilt math, and I think I’m good at it!

—Tiffany on September 20, 2017When it comes to quilt math I’m a little wobbly.

—ADK Kate on September 20, 2017Mostly I am a Whiz at quilt math but occasionally I scramble and scratch my head in bewilderment. Tell Katja that she has put the WOW FACTOR into Dresden Plate. What a dynamo idea for changing up this block and adding zing!

—Camille on September 20, 2017I love math, but due to less use in current years I have become wobbly at math. Love the designs, love the new book!!!

—Joy B on September 20, 2017I am a math whiz. For some reason I can do it in my head. This ability skipped my kids.

—Gail on September 20, 2017good at math but it is easy to trip up in quilt math. lol

—Lisa Parlett on September 20, 2017When it comes to quilt math, I am the worse.

—Donna on September 20, 2017I always refer to online charts for help. Whether or not you are good at math, it’s an excellent idea to have a handy reference available. My grandmother made many dresden quilts, even a baby quilt with 4″ flannel hand appliqued plates. Being her favourite design, she would have been amazed by the modern variations on such a classic pattern. I can’t wait to make one of these new designs in memory of my grandma.

—Maureen on September 20, 2017I am the worst. When I decide to change quilt size I usually wind up with a totally different looking pattern.

—Di werner on September 20, 2017I love math so one of the perks of quilting is playing with numbers! I’m a whiz at quilting math!

—Vicky on September 20, 2017Just as with high-school math, I am the worst at quilting math. Fortunately, I married a man that helps me with my quilting math!

—Teri Gailey on September 20, 2017I’m a math wiz. It’s been funny lately, I’m translating everything into quilt math, and forgetting basic stuff, lol.

—Maryellen on September 20, 2017I’m not bragging, but I am actually pretty good at math. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t mess up my quilt math sometimes!

—Barbara Johnson on September 20, 2017I love Dresden patterns and plan to make one with Liberty of London fabrics. Thank goodness I married a man who is great with math, because I am hopeless! Katja’s new patterns are amazing.

—Gale W. S. on September 20, 2017I think I am across between a whiz and a bit wobbly depending on what I’m working on.

—April Bogart on September 20, 2017A little only, been a long time since math class.

—Brenda on September 20, 2017Sometimes my maths works, but other times I need to make just the odd adjustment or three! I’d love to have the Dresden book though. It really looks inspiring

—Leslie in MN on September 20, 2017I’m not too bad at Math but my Dad was a whiz…so I tend to doubt my answer…yet I’m a whiz at estimating because I always add more fabric so I can add it to my stash!!

—Barbara Thomas on September 20, 2017I Have always been proud of my math skills but when It comes to quilts I’m the worst, especially wedges/circles.

—elizajane on September 20, 2017A whiz most of the time! The math is one of my favorite parts about quilting!

—Britni on September 20, 2017Math is not my strong point, maybe on a good day I might even get wobbly.

—A. Bouwman on September 21, 2017I’m very wobbly but I love dresdens so much I’m willing to take on the challenge. Lol

—Sue Bambury on September 21, 2017I am not a whiz or am I wobbly , so that leaves me of great need in the math area. I did know all the wonderful blocks you can make. Would really love to win. It would be a challenge, but I could do it.

—Shirley on September 21, 2017A little wobbly

—Tracy karkheck on September 21, 2017I’m a whiz, love a math challenge – and love writing quilt patterns.

—Vickie on September 21, 2017The worst. I cut a deal with me high school math teacher, if I would show up for tests he would pass me with a C.

—Paige Mills on September 21, 2017A little wobbly, but do a lot of my own quilt designs on graph paper

—Sharon on September 21, 2017I like to try to figure things out but it doesn’t always go so smoothly. There is that level of self satisfaction that is appealing.

—Linda Price on September 21, 2017I’m a whizz , which is surprising because I was awful in math in high school!

—Irene Brace on September 21, 2017I’m definitely a little wobbly. Needs improvement in that field, for sure.

—Roz Agulnik on September 21, 2017I’m probably somewhere between little wobbly and worst. Looks like an amazing book.

Quilt math ? I am the worst

—Debbie on September 21, 2017I am somewhere inbetween A Little Bit Wobbly and The Worst – but if I am honest it has to be The Worst.

—Kathleen Anderson on September 21, 2017Oh I"m wobbly on a GOOD day!! I need this book! The blocks are so original and beautiful!

—Cathy Morrison on September 21, 2017I’m a bit wobbly. I would love this book so I could make my first Dresden Plate quilt!

—Daria Mellor on September 21, 2017Well, wobbly, but getting better.Work in progress!

—shirley marvin on September 21, 2017I’m not a whiz, but a little more than wobbly. Katja’s books are all wonderful!

—Gwen Wehner on September 21, 2017I think I’m a whiz with the math but my sewing skills could be better!

—Debra White on September 21, 2017The worst, hands down!!

—Karen on September 21, 2017I know some math but geometry was not my best. I struggle to figure out how to piece some blocks. I would much rather hand piece than machine piece and am so wanting to start a dresden block.

—Barbara Bowen on September 21, 2017Very good, reliable for the skills I’ve mastered. Willing to work through mishaps when it is my own design (still learning)

—Rebekah Waddell on September 21, 2017Looking forward to new skills with these dresdens!!

Well, maybe not a whiz, but i’m good with numbers. Once upon a time I owned a quilt shop, and I could figure yardage, etc. with the best of them. I have always been able to look at quilt blocks and figure piece sizes for multiple block sizes. And really, isn’t that the most important math skill of all.

—Barbara Nevaril on September 21, 2017I am the one in our group who usually does the math

—Jan Peever on September 21, 2017I fall into the "A little wobbly" category. Over the years it is cemented in my brain that I add 7/8 inch when making half-square triangles and 1 1/4 inch to make quarter-square triangles, but for some reason I can never remember the formula for side and corner setting triangles. Do I multiply for the side triangles and divide for the corner triangle or is it vise versa??? I solve it by keeping a cheat sheet aka index card handy.

—Shirley Eskey on September 21, 2017I am the worst! Thank heaven my hubby is a wiz with math, he is invaluable when I need math for a quilt!

—Jenell Lamb on September 21, 2017I do pretty well, but never too old to try something different. The book looks like a good one!

—Penny on September 21, 2017The worst. Oh yeah, it’s bad.

—Nancy Bekofske on September 21, 2017When it comes to Math – I am THE WORST. That’s what calculators are for!

—Katherine on September 21, 2017Well, I’m a little wobbly so I appreciate that Katja has done all the math for me!

—Elizabeth Bolton on September 21, 2017I’m a little wobbly

—Roberta on September 21, 2017A little wobbly but that’s what makes EPP so amazing, I can wobble my way thru it lol!!

—Letitia on September 21, 2017I usually can do the math, but it is not my strong suit. This book looks to be the one I would need to be successful.

—Katherine Morvay on September 21, 2017I’m a wiz. Part of what I love is figuring out how to get the effect I want, exactly. I’d love to win her book. I have tried a wee bit of paper piecing and need a kick to play more with it.

—Sherry Jurykovsky on September 21, 2017When It comes to math— I am a bit wobbly so I run to my husband the math guru and have him check my math! Otherwise I would be sunk!

—jovdmey@gmail.com on September 21, 2017Sadly, my quilt maths is getting more wobbly as I grow older

—Cathy Smith on September 21, 2017I love math so am pretty good at it. Maybe not a whiz but close. Love Dresden plates and will be trying these for sure.

—Sherill V on September 21, 2017I am SO bad at Math—–THE WORST of the WORST!!!

—Linda Taylor on September 21, 2017I’m in the worst category but over the years my worst has improved. When I began piecing quilts, one of my sisters said you can’t possibly succeed at this. It’s geometry and you failed geometry. Well maybe my high school math teachers didn’t use the right incentive–fabric.

—Mary Kinsey on September 22, 2017In a national math exam in high school I scored in the 99th percentile in abstract algebra but in only the 50th percentile in arithmetic. I am great at figuring out how to calculate quilt measurements, e.g., how to enlarge or decrease block sizes, but it takes me several times to get the addition and subtraction done correctly!

—Sandra Wilcox on September 22, 2017I would have to say I’m in between whiz and wobbly. I get it right and I get it wrong. More right thank goodness.

—Wronda Lamando on September 22, 2017I am the worst, but I love these dresdens! Thanks for the chance to win!!

—bookboxer on September 22, 2017A little wobbly.

—Teresa Knittingdancer on September 22, 2017I’m really bad at measurements. Sometimes "measure twice" is not enough.

—Paulette Doerhoff on September 22, 2017I can do math, but I prefer to work smarter and not harder. I’m wobbly in my desire to do math.

—Colleen O'Hogan on September 22, 2017a wobbly whiz

—jane hellwege on September 22, 2017Wobbly to worst! I need a calculator by my side!

—Welton Renee on September 22, 2017I am definitely wobbly and I love dresdens so I will be glad to get this book and have the math done and some very creative dresdens to make!

—Ferne Watt on September 22, 2017Quilt math is no problem for me. The rules of geometry never change. There are never more than 360 degrees in a circle.

—Fran on September 22, 2017Somewhere between a whiz and a little wobbly! Can’t wait to see the book and the quilt along!

—Barbara on September 22, 2017I can calculate straight pieces if necessary but I hate it

—Carol on September 22, 2017Somewhere between wobbly and the worst! I love her creativity!

—Cathy Wilson on September 22, 2017I am wobbly but willing to take the time to figure it out. Love Geometry! Thank you Katja, for such a beautiful collection of blocks and projects, in this book. Looking forward to your quilt-along.

—Debbie on September 22, 2017My husband was a physics and math major in college. He is my go to for anything math related including triangles of all sizes and making them bigger or smaller…not to mention figuring out how much fabric I need to enlarge a quilt, measuring for borders, etc. What a man!

—Mary Swanz on September 22, 2017Math has never been an issue for me! Consider me a Whiz!!!

—Robbi on September 22, 2017a bit wobbly. I’m usually nervous doing it, check myself 3 times, but its usually ok in the end

—Judy on September 22, 2017Wobbly at best. Love the preview of these Dresdens! Have always wanted to try my hand at Dresdens but have been a little intimidated to take the plunge.

—Terie R on September 22, 2017Wobbly at best. I can hack if needed, but I prefer at least a starting point (pattern).

—Elaine Chamberlain on September 22, 2017I’m a Whiz. I love quilt math and am pretty good at it. And I love, LOVE, EPP! We travel a lot and my sewing box is always on my lap in the truck and in the camper.

—Mary Lindberg on September 22, 2017I’m a little wobbly at math. Did a class on Dresden’s and was such fun making a wall hanging. Ready to take on this adventure!

—Lynne Treimer on September 22, 2017I am between a whiz and a little wobbly. I always double check myself. Measure twice cut once.

—Maurine M on September 22, 2017I’m a math whiz. I worked at Joanna for 20+ years and used it all day. I’m sure all those numbers and decimals are embedded in my brain.

—Mary Smith on September 22, 2017I am the worst. Glad to let someone else do the figuring!

—Darlene on September 22, 2017I’m a whiz at quilt math. Comes from having 4 years of university calculus and other math for my science degree (many years ago!) Love the ideas presented in the overview of this book.

—Laura Manning on September 22, 2017I am not the best at quilt math. I refer to the instructions.

—Sylvia on September 22, 2017I love the look of dresdens but have never made one. Maybe the math is why, as I definitely fall in the wobbly category. This book looks amazing.

—Kathleen T on September 22, 2017The Worst! Period!

—Virginia on September 22, 2017Math, Geometry oh please no, makes me not want to try.

—Cathy Wilson on September 22, 2017A little wobbly .. this book is on my wish list .. it looks fabulous ..

—MaryLou on September 22, 2017I am a bit wobbly when it comes to one-eighths. I draw a diagram to figure out final measurements and use a calculator just to be sure. I have not made a dresden quilt yet so I would welcome the book!

—Cheri on September 22, 2017I’m a almost a whiz. I’m always modifying my patterns and having to recalculate a lot of things. Thanks!

—Tina on September 22, 2017I would say "A little wobbly". This book looks fantastic.

—Donna W on September 22, 2017Wobble wobble! But what a beautiful book! I should be so lucky!!!

—S haddad on September 22, 2017I always have to double check every calculation!

—Laurel Lee Pedersen on September 22, 2017I’m a whiz……but I’m from an engineering background so that helps!

—Moira on September 22, 2017I’m a little wobbly when it comes to quilt math & detailed quilts, but give me something simple and I’m a whiz. No matter which it is it is a challenge I make a lot of notes.

—Linda on September 22, 2017I’m somewhere between a whiz and a little wobbly.

—Sharon on September 22, 2017I’m a little wobley. angielovesgary2 atgmail dotcom

—Angela J Short on September 22, 2017I’m a little wobbly.

—Rosalind Gutierrez on September 22, 2017I would say a I’m a little wobbly.

—Mary on September 22, 2017Pretty much a whiz. Love the math part of quilting. My friends call me whenever they need help with math. Helps keep my brain active.

—Jan on September 22, 2017I am the worst. I was never good at math. Love your book.

—Verna Thomas on September 22, 2017Definitely not a whiz — more than a little wobbly —

—Dorothy M on September 22, 2017but I don’t let that slow me down. I just keep sewing

and do especially love the Dresden plate block. The

book would be great for me — many new ideas.

Mostly wobbly–so I appreciate when the math is already done. Thanks.

—Joye on September 22, 2017Depending on the day I’m either a whiz or a bit wobbly. The dresdens look amazing.

—Teri on September 22, 2017Yep, I’m absolutely the worst!…and very intimidated by it. Looking forward to this new book!!

—Pam C on September 22, 2017I’m always calculating for new block sizes and quilt sizes. Math is not generally a problem for me. I love the look of her new book.

—Susan on September 22, 2017I’m between a whiz and a bit wobbly. It depends what it is. I believe once I’ve done the math a few times in a row I will get it. My problem is finding consecutive weeks to execute the math UM… Quilting, I do get it and see the formulas. Thanks for the chance!

—Jolie F on September 22, 2017I am the worst. I make a lot of scrap quilts from bits and pieces, and I stick to simple math for the shapes. No fancy flying geese or HSTs for this gal.

—nancy magee on September 22, 2017A bit Wobbly when it comes to quilt math.

—Nancy Hobbs on September 22, 2017I am a little wobbly.

—Dixie on September 22, 2017I’m a little wobbly, and so thankful for my calculator and the internet when it comes to figuring out things. It’s still hard going from fractions to meters, and I wish all countries were metric.

That new Dresden book looks fantastic. The blocks look so modern and fresh!

—Cindy S on September 22, 2017I am the worst! Thanksfully, I have several pals who are quilt math gurus so I can call them anytime!

—Nancy L Eriksen on September 22, 2017I have always been pretty good at math but when it comes to quilting, I am wobbly at best. It’s a case of needing to find my calculator as fast as possible. I have been watching a lady in our Project Linus group trying to finish appliqueing her dresdens and would like to learn to do so myself.

—Judith Campo on September 22, 2017I am the worst….my brain just freezes and then l am lost.

—Anne on September 22, 2017Quilt math + me = the worst

—Nora Storvik on September 22, 2017I’m a little wobbly.

—Beth T. on September 22, 2017I am probably the worst. I just go by the pattern directions No changes. Love the book.

—Sylvia on September 22, 2017I am a math whiz! But I do occasionally make errors….

—Kit on September 22, 2017I’m a bit wobbly with quilt math but I get it done.

—Debby Setlock on September 22, 2017Most of the time I am a whiz, (I do have a math degree), but sometimes I wobble!

—MaryAnn on September 22, 2017I tend to be the go to person to figure out the math to make blocks work. Love to win this book as Dresdens are my all time favorite block!

—Cindy on September 22, 2017I do okay with quilt math, but not a whiz. I guess that makes me wobbly. 😉

—Lorrie on September 22, 2017I’d have to say wobbly, but since I always buy way more of a fabric than I could possibly need, I don’t get too concerned about not having enough! I love Dresdens and would love to have your book for the unique ideas you have done with them. One of those "why didn’t I think of that?" kind of book for me!

—Paula Hedges on September 22, 2017Oh my goodness, these dresdens are fabulous, beautiful, & unique! I would love to own this book. I rate myself wobbly most of the time. For these dresdens I’m guessing I would be the worst, ha ha!

—Gail on September 22, 2017I can always use all the help I can get when it comes to Math! So I am the worst – always triple checking and never getting the same answer!

—Lynne Marie Evers on September 22, 2017When it comes to quilt math, I am pretty good, but I welcome any instructions that make it easier!

—YvonneJ on September 22, 2017I am somewhere between wobbly and worst! I was never a math whiz but quilting has motivated me to

—Gloria Cotten on September 22, 2017Get better. However, I really appreciate it when the math is done for me!

I am the worst!

—Vicki Allen on September 22, 2017I’m a math whiz but I love quilt books that include math ‘whiziness’.

—Carol C on September 22, 2017I am the worst

—Linda on September 22, 2017A little "wobbly" – I can use ALL the help I can get.

—Lillian Klaeger on September 22, 2017My quilt guild is doing a Dresden Challenge this year! How exciting it would be to use some of Katja’s dresden blocks. I’m fairly wobbly on dresden math but getting somewhat of a handle on degrees & wedges – whew!

—Lynne on September 22, 2017I am a little bit wobbly with my quilt math but more I have a go the better I’m getting. I have done both hand and machine pieced Dresden blocks.

—Gail McHugh on September 22, 2017I’m a little wobbly but I wont give up to get that quilt planned…I’ll google, I’ll scribble, I’ll even fudge a little to get that idea into the perfect quilt for me!

—wendyb on September 22, 2017I’m a whiz! But maybe not as adept as Katja! I liked so many of those blocks as they flashed across the screen. It would be wonderful to be the winner. Thank you for the chance.

—Susan on September 22, 2017Sorry to say I’m a little wobbly. Thanks for the chance to win a Dresden book, Love It!

—Twyla Johnson on September 22, 2017When it comes to quilt math, I’m a little wobbly! I love dresdens and English paper piecing, though!

—Laura on September 22, 2017I am on the wobbly side of the math spectrum, but these designs look amazing.

—Judy Wilson on September 22, 2017Some of the time I get the math right–like calculating the amount of backing fabric I need–but sometimes I get into real trouble. So glad she has done it all for us. And I love the variety–who knew?!

—Quilting B on September 22, 2017I would say I am a little wobbly with the quilt math.

—Bridget on September 22, 2017Pretty wobbly.

—Nancy Johnson on September 22, 2017I love math and normally I am pretty good at it. These designs look fabulous and i would have fun doing them.

—maggierose copple on September 22, 2017I am the worst in geometry so I’m happy the math has been done for me and I can make beautiful dresdens.

—Frances Claassens on September 22, 2017I’m a bit lazy, I can do it but love my computer program to save me the effort. The program does have a few limitations though so I am forced to use my brain sometimes! Then when I do I wonder why I’m so reticent because it usually gives me so much more scope to create something special.

—Deborah on September 22, 2017I’m a little wobbly in quilting math! Love these Dresden patterns!

—Chris on September 22, 2017I am a little wobbly when it comes to the math part of quilting. I can figure it out but it will take me a long time. I love dresdans and this book would be wonderful to get me started on my first dresdan project.

—Renea on September 22, 2017I am the worst when it comes to quilt math!! I always cut too much binding for my quilts and you’d think it would be easy!

—Carlene Jewett on September 22, 2017If my quilt is scrappy though, I’m a genius!! Ha ha!!

I’m between a little wobbly and the worst in my quilt math. This new book looks wonderful; would love to add it to my library!

—JLouise on September 22, 2017I’m better with the Math part of makeup g a Quilt than I ( sometimes ) at sewing a straight line!😁

—Armeta Lister on September 22, 2017I’m pretty good when it comes to quilt math. Of course, if I get stuck I know some retired math teachers who quilt!

—Janet Sabol on September 22, 2017I’m a little wobbly and try to " figure thrice, cut once".

—Caryn Goulden on September 22, 2017Half the time I don’t bother Hehe…but I suppose I’m good when I put my mind to it

—Skye B on September 22, 2017My math skills aren’t as strong as my engineer husband’s, but I generally trust them. Nonetheless, I always appreciate it when the math is done for me!

—Linda B on September 23, 2017I’m a bit wobbly but some how they turn out!

—Rose Landon on September 23, 2017Wobbly but I can manage what I want to sew. Never made a Dresden but dreaming of it since a long time. This book gives me a good start.

—Anna on September 23, 2017The worst!!! My math skills are calculator dependent. That’s even if I can remember to add 1/2″ to my measurements. The geometry I get. Just not the + and -.

—Linda Towers on September 23, 2017I am definitely a math whiz, in fact its the math that attracts me to quilting and keeps me challenged…but if this book makes the math a non-issue, then I’m in!

—Jade on September 23, 2017A bit wobbly. Thank you Katja for calculating for us….I’ve yet to make a Dresden so I’m forever grateful.

—Diane B on September 23, 2017A little wobbly!

—Katrina Kahn on September 23, 2017Definitely wobbly. Katja Marek’s dresden’s are gorgeous!

—Donna V on September 23, 2017A little bit wobbly!

—Nicole Sender on September 23, 2017Definitely wobbly, but getting better with every quilt, I think! This book looks amazing!

—Carole S. on September 23, 2017I’d like to say "a little wobbly", but it’s a bit closer to "the worst".

—VickiT on September 23, 2017I love the fact for this book all the geometry/math has been done for us. THAT is my kind of book; not to mention I LOVE Dresden’s.

Definitely a little wobbly…ok probably more than a little wobbly, if I am honest. Probably closer to the worst.

—Christy Johnson on September 23, 2017I would love to have the Dresden Book to do the math. I am without a doubt as the worse when it comes to quilt math. I spend so much time in figuring it all out, when I rather be sewing.

—Althea Klosterman on September 23, 2017Wobbly! I’m so looking forward to her book!

—Kerrie on September 23, 2017I am somewhere between a whiz and wobbly.

—Debbie Chenoweth on September 23, 2017Like to think I’m a whizz at maths, but if Katja has worked out all the maths it’s fine by me – more time to sew :0) Love how her brain works too.

—Carolyn R on September 23, 2017Not sure I am a whiz as a struggled a little with calculus but math was one of my favorite subjects.

—Lisa on September 23, 2017I’m a wiz at quilt math. I’m a math teacher and love when my favorite subject and my favorite hobby work together.

—Kathy on September 24, 2017A little wobbly

—nancy seitz on September 24, 2017Probably close to a whiz since I majored in math….but that was many, many years ago!! 🙂

—Barb on September 24, 2017I’m a wobbly whiz. Most of the time, no problem. But then, there are days…

—Diana O on September 24, 2017I’m a little wobbly!!

—Sandy R. on September 24, 2017I claim to be geometry challenged. Sometimes I spend a LONG time trying to figure out the angle or the 45 degree line and the ruler and the proper placement on the fabric. Any math help I can get is wonderful.

—Marilyn Koestler on September 24, 2017I claim to be geometry challenged. Sometimes I spend a long time figuring which way the angle should go or trying to properly place the 45 degree angle line of the ruler on my fabric to make my design.

—Marilyn Koestler on September 24, 2017I do okay but I always double check my answers.

—Debbie Burk on September 24, 2017I can usually figure it out on my own but sometimes it takes me a while.

—Judith Martinez on September 25, 2017A little wobbly. I like someone to confirm my math. 🙂

—Janice on September 25, 2017I’m definitely a little wobbly when it comes to quilt maths but it usually works out fine.

—Fiona Jeferies on September 25, 2017I have always thought I was terrible at high er math like algebra and geometry. When I had to take Chemistry in order to further my nursing career, algebra became very clear when it left the abstract and became applied. I have thought since then, if geometry had been taught by quilting I would have passed.

—Janice HIXON on September 25, 2017I am the worst.

—Linda Deming on September 25, 2017Definitely Ms Wobbly with the maths but it mostly works out. I take my time and triple check. If I get it wrong then I start again.

—Sandra Paschkow on September 25, 2017Definitely wobbly.

—Karen on September 26, 2017Mostly ok at math EXCEPT curves! Those are the worst! Ir when I am tired. Dresdens are awesome!

—Deb on September 26, 2017Pretty good, but not a whiz

—Bea on September 26, 2017I’m somewhere shy of a whiz. I love that quilting is mathematical.

—Maclary on September 27, 2017The worst mathematicaly. I just like to sew together my pieces that someone else has figured out the pattern for.

—Jolynda Waters on September 27, 2017The worst mathematicaly. I just like to sew together my pieces that someone else has figured out the pattern for. I love just sewing without working my brain on the math.

—Jolynda Waters on September 27, 2017would love to learn making Dresdens

—karin on September 28, 2017Wobbbbbby have to ask my 11 year old grandson. He likes to help me and he made his Mom a quilt for Christmas. He was so proud…….We are a team as he says.

—Grandma Sharon on September 28, 2017
