Pattern Details

Dresden Plates are so fun and easy to make! You'll want to make them in big batches. They make great gifts for family, friends or co-workers. No expensive ruler needed. Print the paper template, tape it together, and re-use or re-print as needed. When you use the paper template with your rotary cutter and ruler, your Dresden blades will come out perfect every time. This Dresden Plate pattern has only 16 blades. With it, you can make your Dresden 18" to 43". They make fabulous table toppers, a round baby quilt, a rug, a Christmas tree skirt, or you can applique them onto a background to make a beautiful quilt. Make one for each holiday to decorate your table. The pattern has 13 pages and includes instructions, paper template and the Big, Easy Pressing Tool. Print the tool on card stock and it will help you press your points nice and square. If you are unable to purchase this pattern through Craftsy, it is also available on Etsy at this link.

I'm a busy woman who juggles work, family, and a home business. I have 3 adult sons and a Dear Husband. I get to work at a quilt shop, where I get to sell and service sewing machines, teach classes and play with fabric. On my days off, I get to sew and design quilt patterns. It's all fun!
