True Colors Modern Dresden Circle Quilt

Today is my day to share as part of the True Colors by Free Spirit blog tour. This past fall Free Spirit fabric company debuted the True Colors collections - a collection of fabric blenders by four of their popular designers: Joel DewberryHeather BaileyAnna Maria Horner, and Jenean Morrison. Creative Bug made a beautiful video with the individual designers talking about their inspiration and motivation to create their True Colors collections. 
I was given the opportunity to play with this pretty True Colors bundle by Jenean Morrison
I also mixed in some of the blender prints from Jenean's latest collection for Free Spirit: Wishing Well.
Here are is the full collection from Wishing Well. A really sweet bundle of prints and colors.
And this is the project I created with Jenean's fabrics - a modern dresden circle quilt. I was inspired as I laid out the fat quarters in color order and knew I wanted something using that spectrum. I've always loved Purl Soho's Color Wheel Quilt and thought this would be the perfect way to create something inspired by that quilt.
My circles measure about 18" in diameter (across). I created them using a traditional Dresden wedge ruler. (Mine is a EZ Quilting Easy Dresden Ruler. I've lost track of how often I use this ruler.) For each Dresden (or circle) block I cut 20 different wedges that were 6" long, but instead of beginning my measurement from the bottom of the ruler, I started it at the 2" line and finished at the 8" line so that I'd get a wider wedge. (I've written another Dresden circle tutorial here if you would like to see how to assemble the 20 wedges.)
When each circle was completed I appliqued the block to a 22" square of white fabric, then quilted the block with a piece of batting. I decided to applique and quilt each block separately to make the quilting a little bit easier, but you could applique all four blocks onto a 42" x 42" square of fabric as well.

Coats and Clark provided me with thread for this project. The thread worked really well for both piecing and quilting.
After the blocks were quilted, I sewed the four blocks together, pressing seams open to help the bulk of the batting lie as flat as possible. Then basted the front piece to the backing and quilted a little bit more to hold the back layer together. I used more of Jenean's Wishing Well for my backing and binding fabrics.
This was such a simple project, but I love the visual impact. I'm such a sucker for simple, primary colors - especially when they're in color spectrum order. I'm hanging this quilt in my new sewing space.

  3. I like the Dresdens - very, very nice. My true colors are blue, blue, and more blue. Happy blues,not sad blues. I like blue and white and often red with it. Since becoming a breast cancer survivor, I am adding more pink. I do enjoy aqua, too. It was my mom's favorite color. She even had a Christmas tree that she decorated in aqua and pink to coordinate with the wall paper in her dining room. I had not idea you could find aqua and pink Christmas tree light bulbs in the 60's. Thanks for a great, great generous giveaway

  78. Lovely quilt to hang in your new sewing space! I think my true color is teal. It's a color I often choose to wear and I always feel good in it. It's odd that I don't have much teal in my sewing stash!

I very much am starting to like aqua and there is a certain shade of green too that I am drawn to although I can't think what it might be called; maybe a darker moss green possibly.

    ReplyDelete
  108. So hard to choose. All of the colors are beautiful. I think I would lean towards the yellows and oranges. Probably because we are having a dreary, very cold winter here in the Northeast and they make me think of Spring. It's only a couple months away - right!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. I don't know if it's a passing thing, but probably seasonal-- I'm really into dove grey and cerise (wild orchid) these days, and I love them with a bit of chocolate brown and a pale pale robin's egg blue..... Lovely True Colors! Crossing my fingers :P

  159. That last photograph is *gorgeous.* It really has major impact on the wall. Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite color is dark, dark teal. But I love off-white (!) and most other blues, especially all blues that have some green in them. I love ALL colors in the right hands (not mine) and used properly.

  161. So many pretty colors . . . but I'd probably pick gray and aqua right now.

  162. When I saw the photo of your post pop up on my feedly I immediately thought of the Purl Soho Wheel:) Love yours as a wall quilt! My colours...are any that put me in a good mood- at present I am going through a hot pink-orange-yellow phase, as I have the winter blues. Thanks for a chance at winning!

  164. Love it! I have been meaning to make a color wheel quilt forever! Yours has inspired me to get working on it! I would say that my true colors are blue and light grey :) thanks for the giveaway!

  165. As my 4-year-old daughter puts it "I love all the pretty colors." I am personally drawn to blues in all shades, but as I have been making quilts for others it is stretching the colors I use. Bringing a 4-year-old to the quilt store and letting her pick something too will also make you stretch.

    Gorgeous Dresden plate - I am putting it on my need to try this list.

  167. My colors are definitely blue and gray. While yellow is my favorite color, I always gravitate towards blue and gray in both clothing and crafting!

  168. Great wall hanging! Love the bright colors, but I also love muted and darker colors too. I can never decide what my favorite color scheme is! I'm fairly new to quilting, so I am trying to explore with color to see what speaks to me. Corals, mustards, deep purple, and deep teal are always nice!

  169. Wow. This is absolutely beautiful. I've never made a Dresden Plate, but now I want to try!

    I am all about the purples and blues. :-) I love them, and have loved them for years.

  170. Love your dresdens!! They are high on my must do list! I would pick grays - they just make me happy. Weird, I know...

    ReplyDelete
  171. How does one even begin to choose? I gravitate towards aquas and oranges, but Lord knows, my stash doesn't need more of them! Some fresh yellows would be fun!

    ReplyDelete
  172. My true colors are always autumn colors. Oranges, browns, greens, purples, golds...just love them!

    ReplyDelete
  173. My pick is definitely the blues! A Blue and White quilt is on my "Some Day" list.

    ReplyDelete
  174. OMG! Just one? Well, my favorite color is blue, so I would pick the blues/violets, and if I could add another tone, it would be green.. Love the quilt! I'll have to try the dresden -- I'm still new to the whole quilting experience but have fell in love with it though.

    ReplyDelete
  175. I know I would pick a few jewel colors, like magenta, navy, and emerald. This is a great question to ask!

  178. My favorites are blues, however, I'm trying to break out of my comfort zone lately so would go for purples and pinks.

    ReplyDelete
  179. It's cold and miserable where I hang out--so I feel like some red, orange, yellow, and pink would be a good start.

    ReplyDelete
  180. My true colors are oranges and yellows and hot pinks and reds.... Nice hot colors, for these cold winter days.....

    ReplyDelete
  181. My true colors are reds, yellows, teals, grays, greens, pinks, and oranges. I don't sew very often with blues or purples, at least not yet!! Thanks for the giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  182. My faves are the purples and aqua.

    ReplyDelete
  183. My true colour is a pinky-purply-red -- perhaps you might call it raspberry. I have a shirt from Land's End that is the perfect shade and I would wear it every day, it just makes me happy.

  186. I haven't made a dresden before, those look great in the bright colors! I'd say my colors are lime green and orange, though I promise never to put them together as the main colors in a quilt. Thank you for the giveaway!

  197. Very cool! So the colors I prefer in general are purple, pink, and yellow... and as for the True Color bundles...all 4 lines are fabulous but I think I would prefer Anna Maria Horner true bundle.
