    Default Layer Cake Dresden Plate Template

    I have been wanting a larger dresden template. Does anyone know what size your circle would be using this one that MSQC is offering.

    i made two lap quilts last year using that template, the plate must have been 18-20" across at least. i believe i used a 5" circle for the center. i gave them both away so I can't measure for you. i did one large plate in the center of a 45" square, then added a border.

    do you have the template or are you just thinking of buying it? If you have it can you draw it out on some newspaper to get an idea of the size? if you don't i will see if i can get one drawn and measure for you

    The template is for a layer cake, which is 10", so twice that is 20, plus the area in the center that is open. If a 5" circle was used in the center the dresden would be at least 24 or 25" across.

    The template i have is 8". i used the full length, so it would be 16" plus the center so i guess my estimate was close.
