20+ Dresden Plate Quilt Patterns

They really aren’t as scary as you think. The dresden plate quilt block is pretty simple…can be quickly stitched by machine and the layout and design is so intriguing.


With playing with layouts– remember that they can be sewn down to a whole piece background or to an individual quilt block.  The size is also adjustable— mix and match or keep it consistent.

They are great for using in the center of the quilt, as an accent, in the borders or corner blocks.  They can also be sewn into a full circle, half, quarter or three quarters…the options are endless!  That’s what makes them so fun!
