Oh what a fun chat with Arianna from QuiltKween. She is an artist and her medium is fabric. She was trained at SCAD in Savannah, Ga where she fell in love with sewing and quilting. I have followed Arianna for a while and I am always blown away by her makes. She is so fearless with solids and I had the best time getting to know more about her process. We chat about everything so tune in!

Cricut Maker Dresden Plate Christmas table runner

Cricut Maker Dresden Plate Christmas table runner

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.  This post contains affiliate links. If you click through and make a purchase, I will make a commission at no additional cost to you.  

I love, love, love dresden plate quilt blocks and I think the Cricut Maker just made me love them even more. I have been on Cricut’s Design Space experimenting with making the dresden blades big, small, and everything in between to see just how easy the Cricut Maker can make my sewing life. Really easy is the answer. I am giving the template I used for this cute Cricut Maker Nutcracker Table Runner so you can make it just like I did but please change up the size to fit your table. It is so much fun to make dresden plates especially when the Cricut Maker does all of the cutting for you!

If you haven’t checked out my post on a Mini Dresden Christmas Tree Skirt, please go there now because it will explain the ins and outs of making dresden blades with the Cricut Maker. Cue super duper simple and fun.

The fun thing about Dresden are their versatility. Let’s talk about this simple table runner I made with a piece of solid fabric cut to fit my dining room table that I quilted and bound. You could also use a store bought table runner just as easily. Okay back to the dresden plate… You can use dresden plate blocks on pretty much anything because they can be easily appliquéd onto something. Appliqué with a dresden plate block just means to stitch close to the edge as shown in the picture below. I even use a raw edge appliqué on the centers to make it super easy to complete on the sewing machine with no hand sewing. You could appliqué the dresdens onto a place mat, make napkins, ornaments, pillows, and on and on.

I also used raw edge appliqué on the diamonds I cut out with my Cricut Maker. I love to sew raw edge appliqué projects for the time saving factor but I also love the texture it gives to a project. Did I mention how much time it saves?!? Oh okay, good.

I used a gold thread from Sulky’s Cotton and Steel 50 wt thread that matched this project perfectly. I love how professional it looks using the gold thread. Am I allowed to say that about my own project? Maybe not but I am going to. I really love the blue plaid from the Nutcracker fabrics mixed with the green and the white print with all of the characters. The gold thread. I just love it all.

I even found a cut file for a nutcracker in Design Space for a napkin ring project! Jordan’s Easy Entertaining posted a great tutorial for a stuffed nutcracker with felt and vinyl. It would be so cute with this table runner, the napkin rings, especially with the Nutcracker fabrics. I used the nutcracker file to cut out some cute little red Cricut premium cardstock nutcrackers. I don’t know why I thought it was so cute in the glass but my youngest daughter thought it was a genius idea. I couldn’t take it out of the glass after she got such a kick out of it. I think I will be making the napkin rings and the felt nutcracker for our Christmas Day celebration.

In all of my experimenting with dresden plates I had extras laying around the sewing room. I grabbed this one and stuck it in between my charger and plate for a cute little pop of cuteness. It is the same dresden plate block but I just made the blades a little smaller in design space before cutting. When I had the dresden blades all sewn together I measured how big my middle circle needed to be and adjusted the size before cutting it as well.  Super simple.

I hope you will explore Dresden plate blocks and make your own table runner or mini Christmas tree skirt. The Cricut Maker really is such a versatile tool in my sewing room. I was sewing Dresden blades as the Cricut Maker was cutting out more blades for me which is a big time saver. When I need to cut out card stock I just easily change out the rotary blade to the knife blade and I am ready to cut. I simply can’t imagine my sewing room without my Cricut Maker.

MS episode 180: Jessie Zeigler – owner of Threaded Quilting Studio

You are going to love my chat with my guest Jessie Ziegler today from Threaded Quilting Studio. Jessie is an amazing longarm quilter and talented sewist. Jessie and I chat all about the ins and outs of longarm quilting. Jessie answered all of my questions about what you need to send to a longarm quilter when sending in your quilts to be quilted. Sending off a precious quilt top that you have spent so much time on is a wee bit scary but Jessie helps to ease your nerves about the process and she is even sharing a discount code for Modern Sewciety listeners!!! I so enjoyed getting to know more about Jessie’s story into sewing and then long arming for others and I know you will enjoy it too. Have a listen and make sure to check the show notes for links and discount codes.
