Dare to Dresden Blog Hop: "he loves me, ..." & a giveaway!

11:00:00 PM


Hi all and welcome to Sew at Home Mummy, and to the next stop in the "Dare to Dresden" blog hop!

A big thanks to our head cheerleader, Mdm Samm at Sew WE Quilt!and our cheerleader for the hop, Christine at Quilt Monster in my Closet
Quilt Monster in my Closet


When I saw this hop on Mdm Samm's blog, I thought - huh! Never done a Dresden before, let's give it a go and see if I can put a modern spin on it.

So I'm going to just list a few tips here for those whom have never 'Dresdened'... just really more the tips and tricks I thought useful during the construction of this beauty!

Once you're done here, you should head over to the other ladies on the hop today - here is the schedule:



January 25th, 2013
Sew at Home Mummy: **You are HERE!!**

I started with the "Wine Cellar" Colorstory FQB from Kona, some Kona white, and pictured here is a Riley Blake polka dot I was going to use for the center, but decided against at the last minute - ended up using Kona Med Grey. Also useful is a Dresden ruler and a 1/4" presser foot.

Tip: Put some InvisiGrip on the back of your Dresden ruler - the ruler is SUPER slippery and is difficult to hold still while cutting! (I have a previous post on InvisiGrip HERE)

Tip: in reference to the pic below: (I'm sorry I didn't take a pic of this, thought of it later) trim the top corner on an angle center-out to seam line (see red line below). This'll allow a nice sharp point when you turn your petal.
Tip: Chain piece! It's more fun that way :)
Tip: Fold the petal lengthwise in half; finger press. Use the finger press line to align your seam with to ensure a nice, straight and even end.
Tip: when you lay your Dresden out on your background, secure it with a lot of pins so it doesn't shift while you're sewing it in place.
Tip: I made a little stencil for myself to trace a guide in each petal for quilting lines.
Finished project, 20" x 23":
"He loves me, ..."

Close up of my very first free motion quilted project!!! I'm pretty proud of myself, I think it turned out not too bad!


Now for the giveaway!



My beautiful friend Linh at LiMa Sews heard that I was participating in this hop, and she wanted to offer up the chance to win a giveaway from her store to everyone who stopped by!

She has a gorgeous store - lots of Designer Riley Blake solids and some beautiful bundles, just to name a few! (There's a Joel Dewberry bundle there I've been coveting... don't tell my husband! lol)


Linh has offered up one 8-piece fat quarter bundle of the new line, "New Leaf" by independent design house Daisy Janie, for one lucky winner! 


It is 100% GOTS-certified cotton, from planted seed to packaged bolt. 

To enter the giveaway:

leave a comment here telling me whether you've ever 'dared to Dresden' before, and what the project was.


If you'd like a second entry in the giveaway, follow my blog and leave a comment saying you did so.


If you'd like a third entry, head over to Linh's store and tell me which precut bundle you love the most!


Giveaway is now closed! Good luck to those who entered :)

Contest fine print:

The contest is open to international respondents. I'll use Random.org to choose a winner.
The contest here on my blog will be open from January 24 - January 31.
If you're a no-reply blogger, make sure to leave your email address in your response. If a no-reply blogger wins and doesn't leave their email in their comment, I'll randomly choose another winner.

Good luck, and happy hopping!!

And, again, a HUGE thank you to Mdm Samm and Christine for organizing this hop!

  3. "He Loves Me" is a sew cute. Love the colors and layout. Wonderful "first!"

    I have dared to Dresden before. The first time was a few years ago when I made half plate dresdens to set a visiting Round Robin medallion on point. Later I made a small table quilt in the traditional design as a gift for a friend. I also am in this hop and will be posting on Monday when I will show and tell my new take on the Dresden.

    Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win this lovely fabric ... :) Pat

  21. Great dresden, Erin! I have tried it myself once - I used two different sized wedges and varied the lengths of a bunch of yellow and orange fabrics to make a "sun", then I appliqued it onto a pieced blue background and quilted it like flames… It turned out really well so I sent it abroad as a wedding gift for a friend.

    ReplyDelete
  47. What a sweet pattern, I love it. I have never dared to Dresden -- although I was so tempted by this Hop that I DID buy the ruler, lol -- but if I ever do dare, this will be the pattern I'll want to do because your result is so beautiful!

    ReplyDelete

  59. Love your Dresden quilt - pulling that one blade out really makes the quilt! My first Dresden attempt is with this hop and I'm scheduled for Jan. 31 - stop by to see what it is that day. Yikes - I'm re-doing my project because it didn't come out right. Oh, woe is me....but hey - it's a learning experience. Guess I need to try some InvisiGrip.

  60. I'm a new follower because of the Hop. Nice to meet you!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Cute interpretation of the saying 'He loves me, He loves me not.' NIce work on your quilting.

    I made my first dresden this past year (read about it here: http://quiltingbydawn.blogspot.com/2012/10/dresden-sunflower-coaster-tutorial.html) and then 2 more for the craftsy BOM quilt. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  64. I started my first dresden quilt in blues last year. I had a center dresden on a white with light blue. then the dresden in fans border around it on a darker blue background. the plan is that with every round the background got darker. sadly it still remains in pieces as a UFO.

  65. i am now a follower and looking forward to visiting often

    ReplyDelete
  66. Thanks for a great tutorial. I just made my first (and second and third and fourth!) Dresden a couple of days ago. I wish I'd had your tutorial then! I made a block for Eleanor Burns' Egg Money quilt and the other 3 Dresdens are for some embroidery projects I've done. I just love them!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Rosemary B here:
    Oh WOW your creation is adorable. Love the tips, thank you for those. I am still learning and taking it all in.

    ReplyDelete
  68. What a cute idea - but now I'll be saying that over and over in my head today...he loves me, he loves me not, he.... :) I've never made a dresden and until I wasn't interested but there are so many pretty ones that I'm not sure I'll be able to resist! blessings, marlene

  89. I haven't dared to Dresden before, though I've had a template for as many years as I've been quilting and I have a brown paper bag somewhere with about 20 or 30 petals cut out. At the time my mom and I were tracing around the template and then cutting out with scissors, but I tried to cut around it with a rotary blade a few weeks ago, and yes... holy slippery template batman!

  91. Hi Erin-I love your "he loves me" version of the ever popular Dresden. I hadn't made any until recently and now am "hooked" because it's the one block that you can use so many great colors or just one and it always looks great. The possibilities are endless! Thanks for your inspiration and sharing.

  100. Love the colorway you choose. Dresden was one of the very first things I sewed as a kid. I had no idea what I was doing and used fusible to anchor it down. It never made it out of the wash, but I will always remember that quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I love your take on the Dresden design.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Never dared.. never done any quilting or piecing, this is very interesting so maybe I'll try.. maybe..
    I'm a follower. I love the Notting Hill bundle in aquamarine.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I love your take on the Dresden and the colors. I have done a couple as gifts and made them look like poinsettas but were not attached to any other fabric (guess it would be a free-form type) and had a smaller second row on the first. Just another added to the 'To Do' list of things to make. Thanks.

  111. I have made two king-size Dresden plate quilts - one with extra points coming out of the center - one without!

Great tut, also!! Thanks for sharing!

  138. I've got the ruler, I've got (your) very helpful tips, I've got more than enough fabric... so there is now no excuse for not making my first Dresden!

    ReplyDelete
  144. I have to say that your dresden is my favorite so far. So clever! My dresden plates never quite lay flat, don't know what I'm doing wrong, but now I know how to finish them...as plucked flowers! A clever idea by you makes for a great solution for me, a dresden-challenged sewer! Now I can finish the three I made and put away in disgust! Thanks for sharing!!!

  146. I am working on a dresden plate right now. Well, my grandmother already did the squares (in the 1930s). I'm just putting them into a quilt top and hand quilting it. LONG process.

  147. I really like the color way of Avignon over at Linh's store. It's very cheerful and we can all use a little extra cheer in our lives!

  165. I'm quite a new quilter but a Dresden is on my list of projects to try. I love this one and am going to bookmark it to maybe use for a pillow in the future. Thanks for the tutorial and the give away!

  167. Just found you today via the Dare to Dresden Challenge and just love that you made a petal within a petal. A couple of years ago I made over 80 Dresden table toppers, some for everyday, others for special holidays and also seasonal ones. Most of them were given as gifts to family and friends and some were sold. I am now in the process of making a quilt and table runner with the Dresden pattern. I started following you today and look forward to seeing more of your beautiful projects. lv2bquilting2@comcast.net
