    New Dresden Plate

    I don't know if any of you saw this. Looks like a new version of dresdens. Is it?

    Re: New Dresden Plate

    There is a quilt-block called One Block Wonder that is a similar theory to this. I don't know if the procedure is exactly the same. But they do make some amazing quilts. My Li'l Sis recently made one using a wild jungle print and when it was finished you couldn't tell what it started out to be. Amazing work. (Both my Li'l Sis, her work and the link you posted).
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

      Hi Glenda,
      I don't know if this is a new version - seems like she came up with a new way to make a new pattern.
      A few years ago I ordered precut triangles and squares to make a kalidelscope quilt. I got snowmen and lilacs. If you go to my album here, it shows you how I used the precut squares in the corners of the triangles that were sewed together to turn the block into a square one. It's number 22 in the list of photos. I turned them into a table runner or two. I took the lilac ones and decided to not use the squares and appliqued them onto a piece of fabric to use as a curtain. I have a few sewn on and a few more to go. It looks like her kalidelscope pieces are more rounded instead of the straight end of a triangle, so maybe that's why she is saying it looks like a dresden kalidelscope. Her templates probably look like a dresden shape - it is pretty neat to see the project ideas she came up with.
      I wouldn't call mine a dresden cause of the straight sides and plus there is only 8 pieces in the finished piece, not the many pieces you end up with in a true dresden. I guess this is how the different blocks get their names though. Someone thinks of something new to put together with another idea and there it is!

          I am in love with the kaliedascope (sp?) blocks but am too scared to every try one. They are lovely though.
