Modern Dresden Pattern

Modern Dresden Pattern


The dresden plate block is a classic patchwork block with a playful personality.  Make yours modern with reverse applique centers that allow each dresden to “float” on the background fabric.  This approach is clean and unfussy, while also saving time and fabric.

The Modern Dresden pattern is suitable for confident beginners or intermediate quilters.  No applique experience suggested.  It yields an 11” wide finished dresden plate.  Shown here appliqued upon a 13” finished background block.  Choose from curved or pointed edge-finish options.  Use the quilt-as-you-go approach or traditional block construction.  

This user-friendly pattern provides step by step directions with many helpful photographs. Beyond making your dresden blocks, this pattern also includes tips for finishing your quilt quilt-as-you-go quilt.
