This my contemporary interpretation of a Dresden Plate block. I call it “Deco Dresden.” I am sharing this design for you to use for your personal use only.
I started with the idea of “plates” or “wedges” radiating out from a center. But instead of classic curves, I wanted to keep my design straight and angular. So I played around with lines and angles in EQ7 and this is what I came up with.
I have now turned this pattern into a free quilt along!
And just for the fun of it, here’s the same design in purple. It really sparkles by using lighter hues of the same color at the edges of the blocks.
f you decide to make a few blocks, or even a whole quilt, please share them on my facebook group: Quilt With Christa
