    Sewing With Nancy - Grand Dresden Quilts

    This episode aired today. Anybody else watch it?

    I have the MSQC Dresden template and loved the patterns from last week that Jenny did. I keep seeing Dresden's! Now the ones on Sewing With Nancy. I think I need to do something with Dresdens. The parasol quilt was really modern looking.

    Anyone done a modern style quilt (including mug rugs and wall hangings or anything) using Dresdens?

            I just finished this today. It's made from the Dresden plate cutter from M* and inspired by Jenny's tutorial. This is the same size as Jenny's.

            Then I extended the length of the Dresden plate cutter to cut wedges from yardage. Each wedge is 20" long and I've made the top for a HUGE cushion in the same fabrics. This is for my teenage son and matches the quilt I made him for Christmas.

              I would love to see the large cushion when you are done. That would be awesome I think for my granddaughter.

                  That's really neat! Did you come up with this idea? I bet the baby looked really cute.

                    I really like that. Did you just draw the lines on the fabric using the dresden template first then extend the lines with a longer ruler? Did you do the pattern on the back or just plain fabric measured like Jenny did in the video?
                    That would be really great to make to match a quilt. What did you fill it with?

                    I bet your son really likes it.

                      I think I saw an episode on Sewing with Nancy where she did make a dresden apron. I think it would be easy to make a mother and daughter aprons. If you make one please post a picture.

                        i did come up with it on my own. I made it to match the quilt I made for the baby. I have a 10 degree ruler and just cut out blades until I was happy with the size. I sewed the blades together and then laid it right side down onto terry cloth and sewed around the edges, leaving an open section at the neck for turning. I then trimmed the edges, turned it then top stitched around the edges. I made my own bias trim for the ties. Easy peazy !
