    In a recent magazine I saw a pattern with dresden plates and the suggested method was English paper-piecing. I copied the pattern on cardstock and stitched them using that method. I loved it! So if you like handwork, consider trying this method.

    McCall's Quilting Sept/Oct 2010 page 68. The quilt pattern is for a Dresden Medallion quilt. It has a couple different patterns that you can enlarge or shrink to what size you want.
