Modern Dresdens

Fabulous fabrics from Joel Dewberry, a traditional block using the EZ Dresden ruler = a great little table topper.



8" Dresden wedges on an 18" block with 3" borders;  Table Topper, 24" x 24".  See my block TUTORIAL from earlier this summer.

Oooh, I love mitered borders.  TUTORIAL  VIDEO 
 
Be sure to go see all the terrific entries in the EZ Dresden Challenge and virtual quilt show hosted HERE at the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild:  Small/Mini, Traditional, Innovative.
 
 
Amy's Creative SideSeptember is National Sewing Month.  Finishing this topper was also my goal for Amy's One Thing, One Week challenge.  Good motivation!

Quilters around the world seem to like this too.  See their comments HERE.

  12. When I first looked at this fabulous pillow I thought, "That doesn't look like the blades the EZ Dresden plate ruler makes." Then I realized that your quilting had totally transformed the look. It really makes the blades look less angular and more rounded. I just love your pillow. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Cindi, I used a curved ruler to quilt this on my longarm. I used the seams on the dresden at the base of the wedges to gage where I started the arc, quilting to the top of the seamline two wedges away, and back down to the base, another two wedges away. I continued until it met up with the beginning stitches, then moved over one wedge and quilted another series. Easy to do on a longarm or home machine. If you don't have a longarm, you could mark the curves with a large plate or pan lid, then stitch.
