    A few nights ago I was net surfing and came across a dresden pattern that was cut from pieced strips creating a unique block. Today my daughter asked for a wall hanging in dresden plate and thought this would be fun for her but I cant find it again (grrrrrr). Has anyone seen & maybe bookmarked something like this? Have looked at the "modern" dresden plate pattern and thats not it, neither is the kalediscope dresden pattern.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    it is the choice of words used in the search sometimes. Like in this one I used:strip piecing dresden quilt block pattern or you could try funky dresden quilt block pattern...some times I get lucky...sometimes I come up empty :wink:

    You can also check your "history" it should give you a list of all the sites you have visited each day..

    Can you describe it a little more or sketch a picture for us?

    I don't know exactly what you are looking for but here is one I did awhile back. It is strip pieced.

    Will try to describe it better.

    You cut strips either wof fabric or set length. Sew them together then cut out dresden templates crossing seam lines at angles - can be done so the wedges are all the same or different. One of the samples also looked like a spiral when the wedges were sewn together. The points also are not "traditional"

    My scanner is not working or I would try to draft it.

    Sounds neat! The spiral idea is especially interesting. Let's hope someone has the link! :D

    The president of our quild has written a wonderful book (just published this past summer).

    The title of it is Thoroughly Modern Dresden by Anelie Belden.

    She gives Dresden a thoroghly new updated look.

    Here is her website:

    it sounds like strip piecing the petals. then when you put them together, the strips form angles where they meet up. i haven't seen a dresden plate done that way, but if you go to quiltville, you'll get an idea of the strip method and you'll know if that's what you saw.

    http://www.quiltville.com

    on the right side column, look up the strip- or string- pieced quilts. look for 'out on a string' in particular. hope this helps.

    Unless you cleared your history, the website is there. You'll have to open each listing but first double click on the history pages to open up all sub pages.
