Whatever method you choose, you will always have perfect positioning, thanks to the precise cutting and stitching lines printed on the fabric.

Use your favorite method and finish a quilt that will make you proud.

Love the lines. Quilt more!

Why Quilters Love Inklingo for Dresden Plate and Fan Quilts

Martha's first Dresden Plate

1. Choice of Methods

There is an Inklingo shape collection for you whether you prefer appliqué or piecing, machine or hand.

If you piece the blades, you can appliqué them to a background (printed or unprinted) or piece them into backgrounds printed with the perfect curves and matching marks. Think about it—no worries about centering the plate!! Wow!

You can also mix and match, combining foundation piecing and appliqué. For example, if you like a blade in Basic Pieced, you can appliqué the plate to an unprinted background instead of piecing. The options are endless.

8, 12, 16, or 24 blades in a plate!

  • 9 blade shapes in Appliqué (including a folded point)
  • 6 blade shapes in Basic and Fancy Pieced (including two-part blades)
