A Summer Challenge

The dresden plate is my kind of block. Uber-traditional and perfectly beautiful in all its vintage goodness. And yet, so open to interpretation. There are an endless number of ways to make a dresden unique. And it's so darn easy to transform this block into something very modern. It never ceases to amaze me that something so traditional still looks fresh and of-the-moment, right here in the 21st century.

Enter the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild's EZ Dresden Challenge. Have you heard about this yet? The Salt Lake MQG is helping Simplicity and a boatload of other sponsors celebrate Darlene Zimmerman's twentieth year of designing rulers, by highlighting the versatility of the dresden. So you'll be seeing a lot of dresden quilts this summer—and there are some insane prizes on the line for the best of the bunch. Including a new Singer sewing machine!

"Lifesavers" mini quilt
So here's my take on the dresden plate: my "Lifesavers" mini-quilt. No centers to applique, no points to make—just stripey rings.

"Lifesavers" mini quilt
I got hooked on the idea of fussy-cutting my dresden wedges, but I didn't want to do something that required yards and yards of fabric just to make a few blocks. I thought about using chevron fabric, but the scale wasn't quite right. Then it hit me: Stripes! So easy to fussy-cut—I just cut my wedges from vertical strips of fabric, lining the ruler up with the stripes.

EZ Dresden Challenge project
I ended up using one yard of Michael Miller's Bungalow Stripe in Citron (that one yard made all of these blocks). Since it's a variegated stripe, every set of wedges I cut looked a little different. I turned both the top and bottom raw edges under before I pieced the wedges together, which made it super easy to applique the finished plates onto the blocks—I just stitched them down with a straight stitch. I finished it by quilting with easy-peasey wavy line quilting. (I didn't bother cutting out the background fabric from behind the dresdens after they were stitched down. I know that might be technically "wrong," but it didn't seem to effect my quilting.)

So, are you up for this challenge? Just make a quilt using the EZ Dresden ruler (or any 18-degree wedge ruler). It doesn't even have to be a dresden—there are lots of other things you can do with wedges, too! There are three categories for entries: Mini-quilts, traditional designs, and innovative designs. You've got all summer to work on your entry—just link up your finished quilt on the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild website the week of September 1. The top three for each category will win some amazing prizes. Up for grabs are a Singer sewing machine, a photo of your project in Quilting Arts magazine, a quilt made by Darlene Zimmerman herself, and tons fabric, rulers, and thread! There will be three random-draw prizes as well. Click here for more contest details.

And to get you started, I've got an EZ Dresden ruler to give away to one winner right now! Just leave any comment on this post, and I'll draw a random winner on Tuesday.

Keep following the EZ Dresden Challenge Blog Hop over the next two weeks for lots more inspiration to get you started on your own entry! Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have to admit that I am not always in love with the dresden quilts I typically see. Maybe because I often see them done in very traditional fabrics with scalloped edges, but I really love your version and the way that you played with the stripes! It feels very contemporary to me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I see Dresden quilts and think wow, I'd love to do that, but wow it looks hard, maybe the ruler would help.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You created a great wall hanging. I love how the stripes look in it. Very nice.

    I just saw Darlene on Sewing with Nancy this morning and some of the ways she showed to use the Dresden ruler were amazing. I'd never even thought of some of them. It was really quite impressive.

    ReplyDelete
  118. The lifesaver quilt is wonderful! thanks for the inspiration.

I still don't have a sewing machine to use. I'm in withdrawal! We're moving into our new house June 23, and that new Bernina will be one of the first things out of the box. Then, watch this gal sew! Thanks for the chance to win the ruler. You're a peach.

In addition to my paid sponsors, I sometimes accept free fabric, notions, or tools in exchange for posting about it on this blog or my other social media platforms. But I pledge that this practice will never change one of my product reviews or lead me to use fabric or other items that are not "my style."

I also am an Amazon Affiliate and receive compensation for items ordered via my Amazon links.

Copyright and Permissions FAQ

Can I make a quilt that looks just like one of yours? Of course! You don't need my permission for that. But remember, it's polite (and helpful to others) to credit your source of inspiration.

Can I share one of your photos on my blog or website? Probably! But please contact me for permission first. Use of my photos for commercial purposes is prohibited.

Can I pin your photos to Pinterest? Yes, please do! I love Pinterest!

Can I sell individual items made from your tutorials or patterns? Yes! But please don't open a factory and start churning out hundreds of them. : ) And please do not reproduce or sell the patterns or tutorials themselves. Thank you!
