Charming Dresden Fan Corners |
Photos, Comments, and the Original Pattern May be All You Need for this Modification.
We love when quilters think outside the box and try something different. In this case, the result is utterly charming corners to match the Dresden Plate flower motifs in the body of the quilt.
The maker of this quilt, Sinta Renee of Pink Pincushions, made it for a first grandchild. The instructions in the pattern from Ashton Publications were to round off the edges of the Dresden Fans. Instead, she modified the corners and created her own charming version.
“The binding was started and stopped at each edge and the Dresden fans were faced with another set of fans. Then the backing was turned under and stitched. The blanket has been washed no less than 50 times and is holding up perfectly well.”
You’ll find additional insights into how the pattern was modified to make the corners in the following article.
The original quilt pattern is available at the link below.
