Moccasin Block of the Month Club - May

May 1, 2015

The Moccasin Block of the Month Club goes Dresden in May!  Today the pattern goes out for this classic Dresden Plate block which is the focal center of the sampler quilt.  

This block is absolutely gorgeous.  I love how radiant it looks against the purple background.  A note on the background color here: this is the only block in my colorway that has a purple background.  All my other blocks are set with either orange (x) or yellow (+) backgrounds.  So for those of you working with your own palette, here is a chance to really make the Dresden block pop with your choice of background fabric.  It should be different from your x and + background choices.  I've included a photo of the whole quilt below the Dresden block, so you can think about your own fabric choice.

Block #6 (Dresden Plate)
Fabric is Cotton Supreme Solids by RJR Fabrics for my version of the BOM.

The Dresden Plate block brings  a chance to try applique also.  I think you'll fall in love with Dresden blocks after you try this one.

There are plenty of video tutorials if you need a walk through on this block.  Try:
my friend Sherri of a Quilting Life's Dresden Plate Tutorial Part 1 and Part 2.  Or Missouri Star Quilt Co. Jenny Doan's tutorial.  Most of the videos show how to make the block using a ruler.  I have provided a template for you with the pattern, so you don't need the ruler.  But they are nice to have if you want to make more Dresdens.
