You might not have heard of Farmer's Delight or Farmer's Fancy before. It is spectacular, but it has never been a common block because it is difficult to cut and sew—until Inklingo.

The 12 inch block has one ring of triangles and the 15 inch block has two rings of triangles.

This shape collection is designed for quilters who prefer to piece as much as possible, so the only appliqué is the circle in the middle (choice of sizes). It includes a stunning variety of blades, including a curved blade.

You can even mix two or three blade shapes in each plate.

Since the plates are pieced to curved background pieces, the plate is centered perfectly every time.

Dresden Plate Design Book

All of the methods are illustrated in the design book (74 pages). It is free with this shape collection, so be sure to order it too.

Love the lines. Quilt more!

You will be happy with the results you get with sewing lines and matching marks printed on the fabric!

Dresden Plate Basic

Add one or two rings of "Farmer's Fancy" triangles to any plate for 12 or 15 inch blocks!

The backgrounds and blades in this collection can be combined in many ways to make distinctive variations of Dresden Plate, Wheel, and Fan designs.

Don't forget quarter plates for Fans! There is an example on the Basic Pieced page (scroll down).


"I am amazed at what all Linda has included in the Dresden Plate Fancy collection. You think when you are ordering a collection that you are just getting some templates that your printer will print onto fabric. But you get so much more; so much that you are totally in awe at what all she has thought to include to help you in your choices. I was surprised before with other collections but I am still surprised to find what she has included." - Nancy in Indiana


If you order the Appliqué collection and the Fancy Pieced collection, you will have it all! (Everything in the Basic Pieced collection is included in the Fancy Pieced Collection.)
