Pattern Release: Dresden Plate Pillow!

Thanks to your encouragement, I am super excited to offer my very first .pdf downloadable pattern for sale!! I've written several patterns for magazines, a book and workshops I teach, but this one is a direct result of your kind comments and requests for a pattern. Thank you, friends!  I've labeled this pattern a 'weekend project for the intermediate quilter'.



I set up the .pdf  file for booklet printing. That means if your printer can manage double-sided printing, all you have to do is choose "landscape view" and "2-sided printing" in your printer settings (only 3 pages of paper required).  If double sided isn't an option, then simply print single sided and fold the pages wrong sides together to make a booklet. Presto!  There's also a handy-dandy cutting checklist so you can prep all your fabrics in advance, making this pillow cover a perfect retreat project.

The pattern is charm-pack friendly. In fact, I recommend using a charm pack for a scrappy look to your Dresden and flying geese border. Make a 20" bound pillow cover (with super-easy hidden zipper backing) or a lovely mini-quilt to adorn your table or wall.  For completely different look, check this one out!

I'm always an email away if you run into any issues.  I'd be tickled if you'd add photos of projects you've made with my tutorials or patterns in the Poppyprint Projects flickr group.

Ready? All you have to do is click on that "Buy Now" button and you'll have that pattern in your inbox before you can wind a bobbin (or just as soon as your payment clears). If online shopping isn't your thing, drop me an email (see top left corner of this page) and we can organize a paper copy sent to you the old-fashioned way.

Happy Sewing!

This is awesome! This gives me encouragement to maybe try pattern writing. Maybe. I'd probably have lots of questions. Alrighty then. Off to purchase myself a new pattern.
