Let's finish the Dresden Blocks from Quilt Doodle Doodles

This month's designs are the last of the Dresden plates. So when you have time, if you haven't done so already, it's time to sew your Dresden plates onto your background 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" squares. You should have a total of twelve Dresden plates done so far for the quilt. Appliqueing the centers goes fairly quickly once you have everything pinned, so plan an afternoon or two for sewing this section of the quilt. I have been using plastic scrapbooking bins to store my blocks, it's just the right size. They are ...

Dresden Plate from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Carolina is hoping to recover a Dresden Plate quilt made by her great-grandmother using her dresses. Her uncle took the quilt top, had it cleaned, and had it remade with new backing and batting, and then he gave it to Carolina on her birthday in 2013 as a family heirloom. On March 30, 2017 a moving company came to her home in Wenatchee, Washington and moved the wooden chest that had the quilt. It was delivered to Brownsville, Texas on April 10, but the quilt was no longer in the chest. Carolina believes the quilt may be in Washington, Texas ...

Sunflower Fields from Quilt Doodle Doodles


https://www.etsy.com/listing/535477035/sunflower-fields-pdf-quilt-pattern-in-3
When I was a kid, every summer was spent at my Grandma and Grandpa's farm in North Dakota. Back in  70's I remember fields of sunflowers and wheat. It is burned into my memory how golden it was. It was a golden time in my childhood.... lazy mornings waking up to the smell of bacon and eggs, homemade sweet rolls,  4th of July fireworks, family barbecues, kittens, homemade cookies and grandma's apples and banana salad. I can always count on inspiration from my childhood and memories, so I have yet a new pattern, capturing the ...

Melon Smoothie from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Mary Kerr is looking for a quilt named “Melon Smoothie.” This quilt was last seen on February 14, 2017 in Paducah, Kentucky. It was on display at the National Quilt Museum, but once it was shipped, it never made it back home to Virginia.

This quilt is 76″ by 84″. The main colors are salmon and green. It is made from a vintage top, circa 1930, and it was quilted in 2014. It is hand pieced, hand appliquéd, and machine quilted. It is labeled, “Quilt as desired, www.marywkerr.com.” The label is fused to the bottom right corner.

Dresden Plate aus Resten – scrappy from Lalala Patchwork, Quilting, and More

Als euch am ersten diesen Monats Andra {Quiltmanufaktur} den Monatsblock für April, den Dresden Plate, vorgestellt hat, waren viele von euch sehr überrascht. Dieser Block ist doch so ganz anders als die Blöcke davor. Also ich selber war auf die Reaktionen sehr gespannt. Es sind ja eine ganze Menge Anfänger dabei und auch die haben sich […]

Dresden Plate Party! from The Free Motion Quilting Project

We've been having a party making Dresden Plates with the new Dresden Plate Template Set!


Dad has been piecing dozens of Dresden Plates together since January and I love seeing the variety of quilt blocks you can create using the templates. You can mix and match the templates in many ways to create a huge variety of Dresden Plate Quilt Blocks.

The easiest way to make a creative Dresden Plate is by changing the way the petal edges are finished. Let's learn how to finish the edges of the petals four different ways in this new quilting tutorial ...

Quilty Box! Color Wheel Quilt Blocks from The Free Motion Quilting Project

It's Quilty Box time! Yep, this is a post with affiliate links to support our business. I received an awesome box of gear this month filled with beautiful fabrics and supplies selected by Allison Glass and I challenged myself to make this pretty Color Wheel Block with the fabrics:


I've made many Dresden Plates over the last few weeks, but this is the first plate I cut into a circle to create a wheel block. It's not hard, but I do recommend having a good circle cutter to make it easier. I like the True Cut 360 ...

WIP Wednesday - the colourful ones! from Charly & Ben's Crafty Corner


In between getting ready for our Modern Irish Quilters Sewing Day this past weekend, I have been preparing samples for a Quilt-As-You-Go class showing the ticker tape process and using scraps to make a wall hanging like Wilbur and QAYG panels like this version of a pattern by Stitched in Color called Bottled Rainbows


Rachel's pattern uses 16 rectangles to make up the quilt.  I'm using 9 bigger square blocks measuring 20" square.  I don't have as much variety in my scraps to get panels of both orange and tangerine so I've tried to come up ...

Hate Curved Piecing??? from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Is the curved piecing on the Dresden block driving you nuts? As I have learned over the years, there is usually more than one way to create a block. From my point of view, there is no right or wrong way as long as it gives you the same results as what the pattern is trying to achieve. Well my friend, Lea at Podunk Pretties has taken my Dresden BOM directions and shown a great tutorial on an alternative way to do the center circle. For those of you who hate curved piecing this is a great alternative method for ...

February's Blocks, A Cute Puppy and Chicken! from Quilt Doodle Doodles

This month are a couple of cute blocks, a puppy and chicken. I can't even count how many dogs my grandparents had over the years while all of us were growing up. I can say my least favorite dog was Barney, a St. Bernard. Barney was a sweet dog and I probably would have loved him if we would have started out on a better foot. Here's my version of the story.... Imagine a thirteen year old who, well was a typical thirteen year old girl, fussy about her hair and outfits. When I first met Barney he ...

The Mystery Piece... from Quilt Doodle Doodles

There seems to be a mystery piece in the January directions for the Quilt Doodle BOM. I've gotten tons of email about the mysterious 'B'. I have no great explanation.... the software I use for designing kicked the 'B' piece out for me. I left this 'B' piece on the pattern sheet, it was a complete oversight on my part to leave it there with no explanation. While working on this block I decided there's an easier way to make this 'piece' of the quilt so I drew up the wedge piece with the 'fold' marked on it ...

January's Blocks! A sweet little kitten and piggy! from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Happy New Year! I finally have this month's posting done! Sometimes technology fights with me and things take a little time. Which reminds me of all the long car rides we took to grandma and grandpa's house! They lived on a farm in North Dakota and we lived either in Texas, New York or the closest state, Minnesota. We were always so anxious to get to grandma's! I've been so anxious to get this posted that it seems it has taken be twice as long, sorta like how all those car rides felt. So for this ...
