Out of the Great Depression came this fantastic vintage pattern: the 1930s Dresden Plate Mini Quilt. Made with a bundle of prints inspired by the ‘30s, you’ll need a bunch of 2.5 inch squares, some background fabric, dresden blades, and fabric for binding. You can download the tutorial and template to make this quilt pattern in order to print out the directions for your convenience. This mini quilt can be a classic addition to any home, especially if you like beautiful yet vintage prints and patterns.

I love the vintage style of this pattern. Dresden plates are too gorgeous!

This vintage Dresden plate is one of my favorites for a wall hanging backed with canvas for my home decor projects.

So beautiful and can be used in many ways. I am thinking a doll quilt or a wall hanging. It also gave me another idea. My husbands father passed a couple of years ago and we have all of his ties. I may use them to make a quilt for my husband...that can be passed down to our grandson in the future. But, on this quilt, the fabrics chosen show just how beautiful a mini quilt can be. Will check back for photoss!

This pattern is very clearly written and easy to follow instructions. I used a Chloe's Closet 30's fabric layer cake with the centre circle fabric an unknown scrap.
