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.

Lovely plates:) and lovely colors also.
I am a fan of greens and aqua, and I am using really all colors in my works. Color allways makes me smile.

Elisabeth said...

Beautiful quilt! I love Dresden plates and Jenean's fabrics are perfect for them. My colours are greens, blues and greys with a little yellow thrown in for happiness. Thank you for a lovely giveaway!

Suze said...

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

Lisa said...

Oh my how gorgeous. Wonderful that you will continually enjoy this beauty hanging on your wall!

SHARON ZISOS said...

You made a very Mondern Dresden Quilt. Nice to show how you quilted it as squares then put the four squares together. Great colors. Primary Colors are my True Colors. Red, Yellow and Blue - like the Song my Children used to sing. Thanks for Sharing! Can't resist a GIVEAWAY!

Tracy Kay said...

I love the colours purple and green together. They are probably not a common pairing, but it's one I find very pleasing. Thanks for the chance of a giveaway.

Shelley said...

Beautiful!! My true color would be Aqua. But I love most all colors!
Shellcantrell @ gmail

Karen said...

I am a ble person and probably purple when excited. Those are MY true colours. The idea of blenders but using different designers is genius. Gives variety yet an underlying connection.

JoyceLM said...

Thanks for the great tutorial. I'd choose greens, blues & purples with some yellows & oranges. Thanks.

Mrs Quinn said...

Beautiful quilt. My true colors would be purple and aqua. Like that green though. It really pops.

charlotte said...

I love your take on that quilt. I too have always loved it, but I think four smaller dresden wheels are awesome. I love yellows. My most favorite color. All shades and hues, it always feels warm and it pairs well with so many colors. Thanks for the tutorial too.

Sonia said...

Such beautiful and colourful Dresdens! I think my true colours would have to be aqua's and purples, although not necessarily together! x

Tamara Hampton said...

I am drawn to red and blues. but all the fabrics I have seen so far in the collection have made me ohh and ahh.

My true colors are girly colors -- pinks, purples, yellow and aqua. great job on the dresdens.

*Tyler* said...

I can't stop obsessing over that green on top of the bundles. I would use that and add some pink, blue and orange. All pinwheels to get ready for summer :)

Jenni E said...

Beautiful Dresdens! My color choices lately have been aqua, orange and raspberry pinks…I just gravitate towards them. Oh and sunny yellows!

Margaret said...

I'm a sucker for blues, but not pastel blue. Of course, purple is good too!

Lisa Marie said...

Love your quilt! My colors of choice lately are bright aquas, limes, yellows, and oranges. And I like putting grey with bright colors to make them pop.

my happy bluebird said...

This collection is lovely -- I would follow tour lead and make a color wheel quilt -- we are having such a dreary winter here in the northeast and looking at those colors makes me happy:-)

Amy Verne said...

My current quilting project is blue, green, and yellow, but I'm thinking of my next project: reds and grey.

I love the colour wheels! If I had to chose my colours? Must I choose? I love them all, and it depends on the mood of the moment. Today, I feel like orange and aqua with a bit of gray. tomorrow might be something else...

aeundrw said...

My "True Colours" are navy, grey and green!

Darcy said...

Amy this is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing such a lovely giveaway and project :-) My one true color is always green but I'm also a complete sucker for a good fabric rainbow.

Siobhán said...

We have gale force winds here--and have had them since the weekend--and the rain is coming down sideways. It is so nice to see your bright dresdens for a bit of color! I think I'd go with red for my choice of fabric color, though I've been gravitating towards oranges lately. Thanks for the chance to win!

Christy Daigle said...

Love this fabric! And I love the use of the color wheels to emphasize the range of colors! I love the greens and purples but I think the purple prefers the orange in this case.

Jeremy Matthews said...

I'm definitely a color of all sorts person. But if I had to choose, I tend to gravitate towards bold pinks

Margaret said...

I am sure that my True Colors collection would include shades of blue and green.

Peaches1003 said...

I'd choose green, pink, aqua, coral, purple, yellow - well rounded and sweet (haha). Green is my favourite and I think the others compliment it well. Your quilt is lovely by the way, and I love your blog. I made my first ever quilt from your baby quilt tutorial!

Debbie said...

Sheryl said...

My colour spectrum ranges red-purple-blue. I can appreciate greens and oranges and yellows but they don't speak to me in the xame way.

Teresa Stanulis said...

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!
tstanulis@mac.com

Sue H said...

KLDettl said...

I would choose all the colors that remind me of the beach, blues, aquas, sand, driftwood, shells. Subzero wind chills make me long for the sun and sand!

Sadie McGrath said...

Mine would be blues and grays. I'm a sucker for those cool colors. My husband has challenged me to use WARM colors for decorating/painting the basement. HA!

Kim @ TiesThatBindQuilting said...

Mine would be probably be mostly blues and teals with some purple, bright pink, yellow and gray thrown in.

Taya@TypeB said...

Love Jenean's fabrics for this line. I think I would pick rich jewel tones for my True Colors, maybe played off of a bright white or a deep grey. Thanks!

Linda Stutzman said...

I am currently working on a project using blues and yellows.

Suz said...

My true colors are beach colors....thank you for the chance to win.

Ginny Worden said...

I would probably pick red,gold, green,and blue,maybe pink.Oh drat, this is harder than I thought it would be.

VickiT said...

What a gorgeous Dresden; one of my most favorite blocks and/or quilts. My true colors are purple, red, and/or lime green. 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.

ikk said...

My true colors are green, green and more green - in all shades, but I like to mix it with other colors, usually very energetic ones. But when comes to wearing a colors it must be red, red, and more red;)

Mandy Laseter said...

Love the dresden block. My true colors would be blue and green and all their variations.

madfabriholic said...

my "true colors" are always purple and __________... your Dresdens are stunning! madfabriholic at gmail dot com

Mel_Lind said...

Amy - you didn't even mention the coordinated strip of "true colors" binding on your quilt....LOVE it! My true colors...hmmm....I love all colors, but I guess I'd have to say hot pink, tangerine and bright yellow.

Heidi [Banks of Frog Creek] said...

Purple and green :)

Paula said...

Your dresdens are gorgeous! There's a serious gap of purples in my stash, lately. I'd love to add some to my stash. Thanks for the chance, xx

This turned out so pretty! I love teal, aqua, and purples best right now. Maybe some navy and gray too.

Andrea Lui said...

ahh! love the quilt!! my true colors would be blue and green. andreachang1220(at)gmail(dot)com

Deborah said...

No doubt about it...my true colors are chartreuse and periwinkle. Not necessarily in that order.

Liz Therrien said...

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!!

Swedish Scrapper said...

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

AngieSue said...

My true colors are blues and greens -- but as long as they are vibrant and bright, I like them all!

Sarah J. said...

My colors are usually green, blue, purple but I love the color wheels that you made. Very cheery. Thanks!

Leslie Kohn said...

My true colors are all "happy" colors....blues, lime/bright greens, coral, teal among my favorites! I love these color wheels....Definitely want to try those! Thanks for all your inspiration!

Michelle Olsen said...

Your dresdens look so good!!! For my true colors I love violet & turquoise, but I really like to set quilts on a gray or black background and am partial to rainbow colors and batiks in my quilts.

Sarah said...

I am such a purple girl but I love a nice touch of teal and aqua.

Jenny said...

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.

Lana said...

NICE! Everything you do is so cute! Those colors are brilliant! Thank you for hosting the giveaway...
:)

KULLA'S JOURNEY said...

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

Bettina said...

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!

Nena said...

Beautiful! Taupe, greens, corals, buttery yellows, browns. Thank you!

bruinbr said...

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!

Elizabeth said...

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.

Samantha said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! So pretty! I would pick green and teal ;)

Jess said...

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!

Jordan Keller said...

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!

Stephanie Rose said...

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.

B Greene said...

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

Jenn @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge said...

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!

Jennifer said...

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

Julia said...

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

AStrangerView said...

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.

Allison said...

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

Joan H. said...

I like bright, happy colors especially purples and lime greens.

maureen said...

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

Sandra W said...

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

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!!

Jan said...

My faves are the purples and aqua.

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.

my true colors are blues and greens but I love anything bright. Also love your dresden rainbows beautiful.

Tamie said...

My true colors today are greens and blues but on another day they might be pinks and purples. Love your modern dresden.

Ali said...

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!

You've made such a gorgeous mini! I would have to say grey and blue would be my true colors... for now.

Michele T said...

I love your quilt... The rainbow Dresden is on my Must Do Next list and it would be even more possible if I won this fabric bundle!!! Thanks for the chance! PS I am definitely going to pin your mini quilt on my Quilt & Sew Pinterest board!

Stephanie Robinson said...

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.
