One Ruler, Three Quilts

This easy Dresden ruler is an oldie but a goodie. I decided to play with it a little bit without using a pattern.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quilt # 1 is a classic tumbler quilt in the middle. Just use the ruler to cut your wedges and alternate them up/down/up/down until it is a size you like. Then I added a solid border and decided to cut the wedges in half and use the wider end for a second border. I really like this quilt. The fabrics are Denise Schmidt’s Flea Market Fancy (no longer in production) and is one of my all time favorite fabric collections. A glimpse of the back and label.

This quilt was made using the smaller cut offs from the wedges in the first quilt. The picture on the right shows a close up of the quilting. The same fabric but with a snow solid background.

And this one I started out like a classic wedge quilt but inserted a half Dresden (sun rising or moon setting?) toward the bottom of the quilt.The fabrics are mostly Kaffe Fassett prints.

I have lots more ideas using this ruler and will challenge myself soon.
