    Default Make an Easy Checkered Dresden Quilt with Jenny! New Tutorial



    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    I like this one!

    Wouldn't it look great in this fabric?

    That would be very pretty Sherri!

    You can also insert batting in the circle. Takes a little longer but looks nice. I blanket stitch around the center too.

    I was thinking this would look great as a scrappy quilt.

    I was actually she would have one in brighter colors. So I agree Sherri, that would be a good line to use.

    I am going to try this with some scrap strips . It has so many seams to match ! I think it will be great for place mats.

    Great idea, nice to use up those misc. leftover strips! I am also thinking of using today's DD with this one.

    Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!

    What if you varied the size of the strips?

    Like alternate 1 1/2" with 2 1/2"?

    Would offset the seams that way but would it look good?
