Dresden Plate

Popular in the 1930s and 1940s, the Dresden Plate is brought up-to-date in the New Quilts from an Old Favorite challenge. For 12 years, the Museum of the American Quilter's Society has held its annual international contest to help quilters transform traditional quilts with imaginative designs and techniques. This year, 18 contest finalists and winners have mastered the Dresden Plate block. Enjoy these accomplished designers' tips, techniques, patterns, and stories as you gain insight into their creative process. This circular block pattern is infinite with alternate interpretations. Made up of several curved or peaked blades and a circle, the components of this block are pieced, then appliqued to the block. The pie-shaped wedges are the perfect place to use up scraps or to explore fussy cutting possibilities. If you are an aspiring quilt designer, apprehensive about taking the dive into creating your own patterns, then this book is your springboard into creativity and confidence.
