Dresden Plate Quilt





The dresden plate design for this quilt is made up of nine segments - 40-degree wedges sewn together to make the plate. The plate that is formed is machine appliquéd to the background and a center circle or hexagon is appliquéd on top in each block.  The blocks are 12” square and are divided by 2” sashings.  The blocks may be set straight or on-point to create varying looks. The blocks may be done by piecing three or nine different fabrics for the wedges or by using 9 repeats of a print fabric stacked and cut to create the plate.
