Bloggers' Quilt Festival

Amy'sCreativeSide

It's my first time linking up to the Bloggers' Quilt Festival. If you haven't visited ~ head on over for a fabulous virtual quilt show!

I didn't have anything new to share, but I thought I'd post again about my favorite quilt this year. It's my Dresden Plate made with primarily Soul Blossoms. Several readers have asked for the setting dimensions and I thought it might be a good time to look those up! You can find the block construction here.

I trimmed my blocks down to 13", so they finish at 12 1/2".
For Cornerstones, you need 20 Nine-Patches, each made from 5 squares of print fabric cut 2" and 4 squares of white cut 2".

You need 31 sashing units, made from 1 print strip and 2 white strips cut 2" x 13".

I also added a white border cut from 2" strips.
I love how this setting really frames the Dresdens nicely. You can see why it's my favorite!
