Morning Sun Quilt – Details about the Pattern


In just a few days, the Morning Sun quilt pattern will be out into the world. I’m so nervous! Since this was a redo pattern for me, I meant for it to be quick and easy, but I did what I always do which is to get obsessed and overdo it. Lol.

I’m going to talk about skills, supplies and all that jazz below, but first here are a few other posts you can look at if you want and links to some of the video tutorials in the pattern.

History of Morning Sun Quilt

I actually wrote the pattern for Morning Sun quilt back in 2017 and we even ran a quilt along for it. I decided to redo it this year because I LOVE making this quilt. It’s an easier pattern and a way more simpler sampler style quilt to sink your teeth into then say, Anthologie is. The older pattern needed a makeover and I really wanted to make the quilt again in almost all solids, so here we are.

I called it Morning Sun because of the large Dresden in the center.

What is special about the quilt is those double pointed Dresden plates. I just love the look of the single one in the center and those quarter Dresdens right there in those corners.

Skills Needed

Morning Sun is a smaller size square quilt and measures 72″ square. Like I mentioned above, it’s an easier make and a quick one too.

Here are the skills taught in the pattern:

  • Double pointed Dresden plates
  • Half square triangles, plus giant HSTs
  • Snowballing
  • Flying Geese


  • Dresden ruler – Ideally you have a Dresden ruler. It makes cutting Dresden blades SO much easier. The pattern does come with a template though, so this isn’t a requirement.
  • 12.5″ ruler – This ruler makes trimming down the large HSTs in the center of the quilt much easier.
  • Half square triangle ruler – I like this one, but use your favorite.
