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.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
