Dresden Coasters for the Holidays or All Year Long

These Make Wonderful Gifts, Too!
One-quarter of a Dresden Plate makes up each of these eye-catching coasters. They were made for the holidays but we’d use them all year long, even with the pretty candy cane binding.
They’ll be wonderful in other colors as well, and make lovely gifts. Best of all, they can be made from leftovers in your stash.
The pattern specifies using English paper piecing for the Dresden blades. If you have another method you like, feel free to substitute it. Or, use the measurements in the pattern and the method described here for machine rather than hand pieced blades (if that’s what you prefer).
The finished coasters, from Just Jude Designs, are 6″ square.
