Pattern Update – 2018
I have now turned this block into a full-fledged pieced pattern available for purchase.
Original Design Idea – Modern Dresden
This my contemporary interpretation of a Dresden Plate block.
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 EQ and this is what I came up with.
Original Quilt Along
Here are links to the quilt along for making the original Modern Dresden block.
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.
