Dresden Plate

A simple Dresden plate block this month. I plan to stitch my petals together, then applique them to the background.

This makes a twelve inch block, so cut your background fabric 12½ inches square (or a little bigger, so that if your applique 'pulls' up the fabric a bit, you can trim to exactly 12½ when you're done.)

I've made a pdf for templates for the petals, see below.

Here's the block.

It's got twelve petals, so you can choose to do two alternate colors, as in the sample, or use three, four, six, or twelve different colors. Your choice!


Please remember when you print either the pdf that you remember to set page scaling to none, or UNCHECK fit to page, however your computer offers that choice.
