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!

drmithome said...

Your Dresden take is fabulous.

Penny Schine Gold said...

Would love the Dresden template--not so much for Dresden patterns, but doing other things with wedges, a la Jacquie Gering.

Amy said...

I love this! What a great modern take on a fabulous block!

hiyacinth said...

This reminds me that I have some Dresden blocks from the 80's. I thought I was so innovative to use a patterned background!

Kimie said...

That is so fun! I may have to take part in this challenge.

heather said...

Love the lifesavers

Claire Jain said...

Ooooh! I like your Lifesavers dresden. This is a very cool way to use the rulers. I also love that you have different colors in your background fabric. It's a subtle difference, but it ads so much depth! Very cool :-D

Sue Daurio said...

Love the lifesavers and I have the perfect stripes for that!! I have to get one of those rulers.

Linda said...

FUN FUN! THANKS FOR SHARING!

Very cool idea, Lee - and thanks for the giveaway!

heartsofhampshire said...

Got the ruler- would never have thought of that in a million years! Thank you
H.xx

Sally said...

What a clever way to use stripes! I love the idea of turning under the tops and bottoms before sewing them togethe--shoot, you should even be able to sew & flip quiting as you go ...gotta try this. Thanks!

Mystery Robin said...

Love the lifesaver quilt!!

Kati said...

Love the idea! It's so perfect and fun.

Kelly Smith said...

I love this! I just bought my Dresden ruler in anticipation for this, hopefully it will get here next week. I am not sure if I will get anything done made time, but I think I will attempt to!

capitolaquilter said...

I'd love to win a ruler - any tool named EZ is for me!

stitchoutsidetheditch.com said...

Brilliant tip to turn the top and bottom before piecing! Good thing I haven't started my challenge project yet. Thanks Lee!

Jenelle said...

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.

Jennifer said...

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

Deonn @ Quiltscapes said...

Quick, simple, WAYY cool.

DianeY said...

Love it! Great idea!

diane said...

Your dresden with these fabrics remind me of summer umbrellas. So pretty

Beautiful Dresden. Thanks for the chance to win!

Paula said...

What a brilliant idea to use striped fabric! Your design is so wonderful! I've been so intimidated by the dresden design and have never attempted it...but the ruler makes it looks much easier! Thanks for a chance to win.

VickiT said...

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.

Berta said...

Love the name " lifesavers".......so cool!

Christi said...

I am in love with the Dresden!

Rosa said...

Fantastic wallhanging.Dresden plates are in my to do list!!

Beth said...

JoyceLM said...

Never made a Dresden quilt before. Your use of striped fabrics is wonderful. Thanks for the giveaway.

Jennifer said...

i'd love to try this ruler out!

using a striped fabric makes this look deceptively complicated. and your piecing is impeccable.

Betsy said...

Gorgeous and amazing that those all came from the same fabrice!!!! Can't wait to see what everyone else creates.

Cherie said...

What a GREAT idea! It might make it easier for all those "boy" quilts I need to make :) I can certainly find blue and green stripes.

Michele said...

jmniffer said...

I've always thought that Dresden blocks were super difficult to make. Lately I've seen blog posts that seem to challenge that idea. I would love to win a ruler and try them out and see for myself. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

Karen said...

Dresden is on my lifetime quilt list. What you mentioned is exactly right- it is traditional block that is tremendously versatile.

Sonya said...

That quilt is amazing! I love how all the dresdens came from one fabric, yet they look so different!

I have a dresden ruler, not sure if it's thae same one. I love your verticle stipes. It might be fun to mix the plates from verticle to horzontal placed stripes. Hmmm, I think the LQS has stripes on sale this month.

Thanks--I'm new to quilting, so I am excited to see everyone's projects! I love the mod look of the fabric and your plates.

J. Thomas said...

Ooo. I have to admit, I've been rather intimidated by the idea of a Dresden, but something as simple as that ruler makes it a little less so. I think I'll go wishlist one of those just in case I don't win!

Lee said...

The lifesaver quilt is wonderful! thanks for the inspiration.

Eden said...

Love the stripes! I think they would look even better with points finishing each plate, although less like lifesavers. Good luck with the contest.

I love dresdens and this is such a clever way to make the wedge.

What a great twist to use stripes. Love how they turned out.

Erin Marie said...

Holy smokes. That's awesome.

Mary said...

Great idea to turn those edges under before sewing them together. I have a set of "OLD" Dresden plates that need to be set on an background- would that qualify as a Project for this Challenge? If not then I NEED this ruler. Thanks for teaching this old quilter a new trick.

Gayle said...

Your striped Dresden is very unique!
