Modern Fabrics Will be Wonderful, Too!
Fat-quarter friendly Dresden Plates are simply lovely in this retro-style quilt. Mismatched borders add to the quilt’s appeal.
Choose a combination of fabrics in colors and styles you love. Retro 40s prints, as in the example, are delightful, or choose 30s reproduction prints for a similar look and feel (like those found here). Modern prints will be wonderful, too.
The Dresden Plates are simple to sew together, then are appliqued by hand or machine to the background.
Once completed, the throw sized quilt designed by Christina McCourt is 64″ x 76″.

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!
