Makes Several for Placemats or Turn it Into a Quilt!
Turn a classic Dresden Plate into a striking table quilt or placemat. Bold batiks provide color and texture while extra petals create the effect of a glowing sun.
This eye-catching design will be wonderful in other color themes as well. Go with softer prints, a differently colored center, or whatever appeals to you.
We played a bit in Photoshop to show you how it could look with a different color palette.
The Dresden Plate can also be used in a quilt by attaching it to a background. Instructions are provided for a throw-sized quilt but combine as many blocks as you want for a smaller or larger size.
Instructions are provided by the designer, Judit Hajdu, for the following quilt sizes:
- Placemat – 17 1/2″
- Quilt – 57″ x 76″
Templates are included so no special rulers are needed.
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!
