Dresden Plates

March 15, 2011

Pokey@ PokeyDotQuilting is making the most darling dresden plates, which inspired me to make a few myself. When finished, the quilt will go to my mother-in-love, Mathena.


  1. That's beautiful! I love the pointed Dresden Plate blocks more than the rounded ones - I don't know if it's because I think they're easier to make?
    This looks like a great stash-busting project too!

  2. oh, oh, oh.......... I LOVE it!!

  3. I love this technique for doing the plates. These are beautiful.

  4. Did you use a template for those, and if you did, what did you use? Those are really pretty!

  5. Oh beautiful! I've been making dresdens myself! I never get tired of making them. Your flower is beautiful.

  6. Your fabrics are awesome....

  7. Hi Amy,
    I think your Dresden blocks are gorgeous and a perfect springtime project. I am waiting for whatever is wrong with my shoulders to ease up so I can do more hand quilting and finish up my latest project.

    I have often wanted to do Dresden blocks, but I am chicken about the applique. Is it difficult?

  8. Amy! Those are lovely! I just started a similar Dresden plate (via the sew mama sew blog) but I only have two done. Your quilting productivity is inspiring. Also your ironing board fabric makes a great background for them. Hmmm...
    Can't wait to see your finished product!

  9. Thank you for sharing the inspiration, Amy, these are AbsOluTelY gorgeous!! I love your fabric of choice, and look at you, you've put yours together! (I, too, love your background) This will be a wonderful gift to Mom in love. So, do you think you'd do another one? I would....
