The Dresden Plate circular quilt pattern dates back to the 20s and 30s, and it has stood the test of time to still be relevant today.
Dresden Plate Stats-
Size: Can be any size. The sides of a wedge are angled. The degree of the angle determines the number of wedges needed to complete the circle.
Make your own: You can purchase rulers to help you create Dresden plates with accuracy and speed at your local quilt shop orhere online.
Where to use: They are most commonly found on quilts, wall hangings and home decor.
We love Dresden plates for highlighting a variety of small fabric prints. Adding a Dresden plate to a pillow or other home decor makes a big impact. We love the idea of making a pillow for each season, or gifting one to a new homeowner.
