Quilt top made by Joy Flynn from a pattern by Gerri Robinson
My new patterns for Dresden Plates are drawn to be set into place using the Point to Point function. By clicking each of the points of the Dresden blades, a pattern can be added to the blade and also to the background at the same time.
Because Dresden Plates can be made of different numbers of blades, it's important to chose a pattern that is wide or narrow enough to fill each section properly. These patterns include a number that suggests which will fit into 12 repeats, 16 repeats, or 20 repeats. Beyond that, you can use Divide and make adjustments in the Height and/or Width of each pattern. A couple of Minis are also included in the set.
Dresden Mini 1
Dresden 12 Pearls and Curves
Dresden 16 Pearls and Loops
Dresden Mini 2
Dresden 12 Pearls and Loops
Dresden 20 Pearls and Loops
This group of four patterns will also set into place P2P by clicking at the top corners of each blade.
Dresden Ice Cream Cone
Interesting designs can be created by using P2P Concatenation to alternate the placement of two different patterns.
