    I could use a helpful hint on how to do a
    Dresdan Plate. Does anyone have a
    pattern that's easy to use, or some
    quick tips?

    Any help much appreciated!!

    The pattern I use has 16 petals. I put 4 together, then square them before assembling.

    Here is an easy Dresden Plate. Pattern is from Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting July/August 2007

    Finished quilt - allows for errors in seam allowance unlike the traditional full circle plate which requires perfect piecing.

    After piecing blades, use light weight pellon to turn the top edge under.
