    Where can I find a pattern? I see everyone's beautiful quilts and I've mastered making one block, but I need a pattern. I'm not creative enough to figure out yardage, etc. to make a quilt.

    Thanks

    Go the Missouri Star Quilt Company site and look under their "Tutorials", then "Project Tutorials" and look for the Dresden Plate tutorial. Very easy and quick way to make a Dresden Plate!
    Hope this helps!

    I got mine from the website for McCalls Quick Quilts. Instructions and template to download for free. When I got to the home page, I typed dresden plate pattern in the search bar and it came right up.

    Here's a free pattern:

    http://www.quilterscache.com/D/DresdenPlateBlock.html

    I use the pattern from Egg Money Quilts and I also bought their acrylic template.

    I also don't cutout the back after appliqueing it down. I feel it gives it more stability since it has all those seams in the petals.

    I think the only ones who need to cut out the backs are the ones who are hand quilting.

    Egg Money Quilts is a great book!

    Also look at Missouri Quilt Company.

    http://missouriquiltco.com/shop/store-front

    They have templates at a good price many times.

    Eleanor Burns has a dresden plate video where she uses her serger and other quick methods. Made a pillow for my Mom. Very easy, very pretty. Google "Quilt in a day".

    Which patterns do you have in your book? That's what I need. A book.

    I have made the quilt and usually don't make the same quilt twice. I have two different patterns. Write to me at my e-mail address and we can work out the particulars.

    There are a lot of patterns for Dresden Plate, including free patterns on the internet. However, if you really like Dresden Plate, you might consider purchasing acrylic templates to make it. Marti Michell (www.frommarti.com) has a set making 7", 10 1/2", and 12" Dresden Plates for $20. She also has a set for making 3" and 5" Dresden Plates with a bonus Mini Drunkard's Path for $16. I don't happen to own either of these sets, but I know from experience that she has wonderful instructions and extra ideas included with her template sets. In all, I own about 7 From Marti Michell template sets, five books, and six patterns (separate from those in the books) and I love them. I saw Marti at the AQS show in Des Moines so I have her newest catalog. Others also make template sets for Dresden Plates, but I cannot give an opinion of their templates since I don't own any of them.

    Marcus? Marcus is my hubby's first name. He lived less than an hour from Marcus when he was young. I went to college less than an hour from Marcus (the town, not the spouse!)

    I got the Darlene Zimmerman's acrylic template at the DSM quilt show. I really like it, it makes a huge difference in the ease of cutting them out. I like the Dresden Plate so much I want to make a quilt out of them. :)

    I am happy to hear that you got a template that you like. Having a good template is wonderful if you want to make a lot of them. I'm not sure if I am familiar with Darlene Zimmermann's Dresden template. If you come to the AQS show on a regular basis (even if you don't) you might want to join another online quilt group that I am in. We are online all year long (many subgroups to the major club), and the Iowa specific club members get together when the show comes to town. Let me know if you are interested in joining the group (on another site) that actually gets together. We had a lot of fun this year!
