Dresdan Plate Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I was able to make this with only 5 shirts. I was able to make it an extra long twin, which i found suitable because he was so tall and would have needed the length if it were to be his.

What you will need

  • Dad's shirts
  • and muslin

Q&A with Roxz

Leigh Walter asked:
What a beautiful quilt and a wonderful way to remember your dad! I haven't been brave enough to try Dresden's yet but you have inspired me to give it a try!
Roxz answered:
It was not an easy project for me but well worth the try. Thanks!
Dorleen Young asked:
are these pattern hard to do? I love to make Quilts.
Roxz answered:
my technique was not easy for me, but i would try this quilt if you used a different method than turning edges and hand applique. This is my technique found here http://www.mccallsquilting.com/qb/mccallsquilting/pattern_703/index.html
