The Dresden pattern has always caught my eye, except I felt like it was a bit dated. I wanted to take this pattern and give it a modern twist. I have a few other ideas for this pattern, but let's just take one step at a time.
For this quilt I pieced the Dresden pieces together using patterned scraps in my stash and clustered them in the opposite corners. Most of these scrap pieces come from the very first quilt I ever made. I cut hexagons out of coordinating-solid fabrics to cover up the centers of the Dresden pieces. The background fabric for the top is a white on white chevron print that's hard to see in the pictures.
The back is a solid grey fabric. I wanted to bring in a touch of color throughout the quilt, so I used a multicolor pastel thread for the quilting. The binding is a wavy yellow print. I put a lowercase initial on the back for the baby.
This is a pretty simple quilt to put together, but the colorful Dresdens really give this quilt a fun personality.
