This Quilt is Much Easier Than It Looks!

The oversized Dresden Plate featured on this quilt is an unexpected treat. The soft colors give it a romantic feel, while brighter colors or fabric scraps will change the look entirely without losing any of the charm.

If you’re a little intimidated by Dresden Plates, you won’t need to worry. The piecing for this quilt is really quite easy and you’ll have the top put together in no time.

If you’re a free motion quilter you’ll love all the open space to show off your skills. If not, consider outline walking foot quilting that echos the fabric pieces and the Dresden Plate shape.

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.
