This is the best resource book that I have ever purchased for a project! Not only is it filled with loads of colorful pictures, but it contains a multitude of different styles and edges to choose from for making your own Dresdens. The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow with visual diagrams. I love that the book also contains various size charts throughout which is so helpful in knowing what size and quantity strips you will need to cut for each style of Dresden you choose to make. This is one book that I definitely will be using over and over again!

Embrace the art of quilting with simple instructions to create particularly beautiful Dresden plate blocks. Each variation looks unique and all are astonishingly easy to sew. Use any and all of the twenty-five design elements, including the four different edge treatments, the range of sizes (2”–9 1/2”), and the amazing variety of traditional (and nontraditional) patterns, from the sawtooth to the flying geese. Mix it up even more by fabric piecing wedges and introducing up to twenty different colors and patterns for each of the wedges. Enjoy the options and the freedom to design with color, pattern, and shape!
