Monkey and I wanted to give you a treat for Mother’s Day. We thought about a plate of chocolate chip cookies, just like Mum used to make, but some of us are on a diet.
Then we decided that a new EQ7 project file with a Dresden Plate design would be a more downloadable kind of plate, and calorie-free.
There are several variations of Dresden Plate in the block library of Electric Quilt already. This one is in the Inklingo Basic Pieced Shape Collection, but not in the EQ block library, so Monkey and I drew it for you.
You can download the project file and start designing for the ClubEQ May Challenge of Red and White Quilts.
If you have the Dresden Plate Fancy Shape Collection, and you are ready to learn about EQ, you can draw some of the Farmer’s Delight and Rising Sun variations.
The Inklingo blocks are 9, 12 or 15 inches. Everything you need to know about Dresden Plate is in the Design Book (74 pages, download, $10 or free!)
Even if your designs for the challenge are elaborate, you can sew them in this lifetime with Inklingo shapes to print on fabric!
Inklingo calls all of these variations Dresden Plate, but they are sometimes also called New York Beauty, Farmer’s Fancy, Farmer’s Delight, Ferris Wheel, Sunflower, Wheel of Fortune, Rising Sun, and other names. No matter what you call them, they are fabulous.
Inklingo makes spectacular designs like these possible for many more quilters. You don’t have to be an expert to get wonderful results. With Electric Quilt to design, and Inklingo for the rest, you have the best of both worlds.
Inklingo makes these designs so much more fun. You don’t have to tell anyone how easy it is to sew with the cutting and stitchig lines printed on the fabric with Inklingo, but we hope you will.
Love the lines. Quilt more!
We hope you like the EQ7 Dresden Plate project file and that someone makes chocolate chip cookies for you too. Happy Mother’s Day!
