EZ Dresden Recycling

June 5th, 2012

The SLMQG is hosting the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild EZ Dresden Challenge - projects, prizes, inspiration, fun… all using Darlene Zimmerman’s EZ Quilting Easy Dresden.  Holy cow, it’s the 20th anniversary of Darlene’s rulers! I love Darlene, and I love her rulers. I have every EZ ruler ever made with her name on it.  Love.  Them. Love. Darlene. Much of what I know about quilting I know because of Darlene. Did I mention I love her?

A few years ago I made Elizabeth’s New Wave quilt using the EZ Dresden ruler - step into my wayback time-machine.
High fiber low word diet
I have nothing to do with this event, other than I’m so excited about it, and think it’s awesome and want to pass it on + I got to recycle a blog post + a whole new world of genius ideas are going to be/being blogged to use the ruler for.  The Easy Dresden Ruler: not just for breakfast anymore.

  5. The fabulous Megan allegedly said:

    Your original post about this exact quilt is what inspired me to make the New Wave quilt. I don’t think I even knew about Elizabeth’s blog back then. And of course I had to make mine with the dresden ruler too. Because I’m nothing if not a freaky stalker fan.
