Traditional Dresden plate patterns have their own versatility, but there's more you can do with a designs for contemporary quilt block patterns like those made using the Swirling Dresden Block pattern. You can create something bold and eye-popping or something more playful and sweet all depending on the colors you choose for your Dresden plates. Such an unconventional paper piecing pattern will really help you expand your quilting knowledge and give you even more quilt blocks to work with in the future.

I started quilting about a year and a half ago and this has to be the best block I have seen and I am going to try it, it does say it is easy so wish me luck.

You can access the template and tutorial by following the link to the quilter's page. Hope this helps, Kathryn, editor of FaveQuilts

Beautiful how do I get the pattern

I just saved the file and printed the picture of the pattern.

Also could not get the pattern to show! What a beautiful block. I really want to make this! HELP
