Dres­den Plates are pieced cir­cles made up of a num­ber of blades (or wedges). With your tem­plates (ready to down­load and print from the LP&Q web­site) you will be able to make a twelve-blade Dres­den mini quilt – like the one pic­tured over­leaf. With the help of our on­line tu­to­rial, you can use these tem­plates to make a whole range of dif­fer­ent Dres­den Plate de­signs by vary­ing the size or by us­ing ei­ther a pointed or a straight blade. And once you’ve got the hang of the ba­sic tech­niques, you can add in your own de­tails – the pos­si­bil­i­ties re­ally are end­less! Sarah has mixed up mod­ern prints and solids to give this clas­sic quilting combo a fresh new look, but you can get cre­ative with your own fab­ric choices. Head to lovepatch­workandquilt­ to see Sarah’s step-by-step guide, com­plete with photos that show you ex­actly how get the hang of the tem­plates. And don’t for­get to share your makes with us us­ing #lovequilt­ingmag – we love to see what you’ve been up to!
