Hello all, Mary Ellen back again,
After writing yesterday’s post, I got dresden plate blocks stuck in my head so I went exploring. I found some neato variations on the traditional block. Not all are easy-peasy but they all are keen! Enough already! Spoiler alert, many are paper pieced to get perfect sized wedges.
This one is a off center swirled dresden:click here.
A very modern angular dresden: click here.
a peppermint pinwheel block: click here.
dresden plate lampshade!: click here.
ideas for finishing the middle of your dresden plate. The best one is shown on the very chic purse at the beginning of the post-it’s the dimensional rose. Love it! click here.
I think this is what I meant yesterday about getting so much mileage out of a few great classic blocks. Enjoy!
