I’m working on my sixth Dresden Plate Quilt. And yes, if you’ve noticed this, they are my most favorite quilt.
In fact, I’ve got an idea for a quilt pattern for this coming January. It’s going to be super scrappy (as always). And once again it’s all about strips. ALL ABOUT SCRAP STRIPS. As so many of my patterns happen to be. It will also incorporate Dresden plates, but a bit different than the one I’m working on today.
Today, I just want to show you my progress pictures for a simple Dresden Plate quilt and share all my links on the topic.

This is how I spent the end of last week. Making Dresden plates. And this quilt! Oh my! I think it’s going to be my favorite. To be fair with every Dresden plate quilt I make, it becomes my new favorite. Here’s all my other Dresden plate quilts:
I’ll probably be spending most of the next few days sewing my Dresdens down on to their blocks and adding their centers. This part always takes so long and the fun part to me is already over. Adding them all completed on the design wall is something I’m looking forward to.
Here’s a few posts I’ve written if you are interested in Dresden Plate Quilts:
Like I mentioned above, expect a new one releasing near the end of January. Also expect it to take scrappy to a major level. I’ll be starting a new series on fabric scraps soon and the new pattern (called Bad Girl quilt) will be the kickoff for it.
If you have questions about scraps, I’m taking notes. Leave any questions you might have in the comments below or email me.
