Brightening Life with Creativity,
one day at a time...
I've been wanting to make a wall hanging with the dresden plate for a while now and I'm finally getting it done! There are many patterns currently out there in quilt world featuring the traditional motif done up with a modern twist but I decided to make my own! Not wanting to purchase a specialty ruler and knowing that my Quilt Cut 2 by Alto's could cut the wedges in no time flat, I sewed some strips of coordinating fabrics together of different widths.
I set the cutting guide to the right "A" position and started cutting my wedges. Cutting wedges on the Quilt Cut 2 is VERY easy because you simply swivel the cutting guide back and forth between the right and left coordinating positions. On one direction you measure the skinny, inner edge. On the other, you measure the wider, outer edge. The best part other than the speed and accuracy? No wasted fabric!
So here is the finished top! I'm almost finished with the quilting and then I am going to make this pattern available on my Etsy store.. If you are interested in purchasing it and making one for yourself, please email me and I will notify you when it is available.
