However, autumn hues, spring pastels and summer brights will be just as nice. Or, simply choose colors you love for a Dresden Plate quilt to enjoy all year long.
Notice how an appliqued circle hides the center where the Dresden blades come together. A fussy cut snowflake motif was used in the example for a beautiful touch.
Hand quilting adds an extra special touch, as well. Or quilt by machine for a quicker finish.
The finished quilt, designed by Chris from Made by ChrissieD, is about 24″ square.
She cleverly used Insul-Bright batting so that the quilt can work as a large trivet for hot dishes at the table. Nice!
