I bought the EZ Dresden Ruler 2 or 3 months ago; we used the Dresden Plate for our block of the month at our church group. Recently, I have been looking at the Dresden Plate designs that are popping up on some of the blogs I follow. I want to try this one at Diary of a Quilter and this one from Happy Quilting.
There has been an EZ Dresden Challenge and blog hop going on with a lot to look at and tutorials as well. There are others that have piqued my interest and I will be going back to them also to try some other things. It all fits in with our current circle theme with the Basement Divas
I don't often buy specialty rulers but the EZ Dresden ruler is a good one to have. I prefer to figure out how to use my basic rulers to cut what I need but when it comes to angles other that 45 or 90 it makes sense to buy a ruler made to do the cutting. I am sure I will get my money's worth out of this one; the Dresden Challenge has caught my interes as I see the neat ideas on the blog hop.
I want to make something in red, white and blue using this ruler. I am drawn to citrus colors right now but after I got out all the summer quilts with red, white and blue colors I realized that this is looks much more cohesive in my decorating scheme instead of citrus colors. I was feeling like my living room and dining room area looked like a flea market. I can hang all the bright colors in my sewing room and make it happy and bright there.
