Mini Dresden Block Instructions are Included!

Go through your stash and pull out a wide variety of 2 1/2″ squares for blocks like those in this beautiful quilt. This is a great project for using up leftover charm squares, jelly roll strips and scraps.

Or, choose several mini (candy) charm packs of coordinated 2 1/2″ squares. White makes a lovely background or go with whatever color works nicely with your patches.

The quilt shown here, by @JENNR8R is made from several heart blocks. Mini Dresden Plate blocks are lined up across each end. Learn more about the quilt here.

While we don’t have a complete pattern, instructions are available for both the heart and Dresden Plate blocks. Have fun configuring them however you wish into a quilt. To replicate the quilt shown above the designer offered this information:

“Are you asking how to set the Valentine Candy blocks? I just put sashing between the blocks and set them on point. Here is a tutorial on how to set blocks on point: https://www.generations-quilt-patter…triangles.html

Also, one heart block makes a lovely mini quilt for your wall or table. The following quilt is by @Leesewzany who added background patches to square off the heart.

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!
