Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company never ceases to amaze me with her quilting creations. From simple blocks to complex quilts, she has taught me so much.
Today, I stumbled upon the Checkered Dresden Quilt. Not only is it completely stunning, but it looks a lot more complicated to make than it actually is. Making it was a breeze.
Along with Jenny’s easy-to-follow tutorial below, you will need the following to make this quilt:
Take 4 different precut strips and sew them all together. Press flat and cut. Jenny uses a Dresden template in order to do this. You can find some online, or even make your own out of cardboard!
Flip your template around and continue to cut using this pattern down the strip set. Fold each Dresden piece in half and sew the top to create a peak, just like Jenny shows below.
Press your points, and sew them all together in a circle. Jenny does this in sets of two. Center your circle on a big square of fabric.
Then make a circle of fabric and a circle of interfacing, using the same size. Sew those together, then turn them right side out and iron it on, allowing the glue to attach itself.
Just stitch the Dresden on however you’d like, and you’re done!
What color combination will you use for this easy quilt?
