Dresden Plates in Key West – Part 2

Inklingo Dresden Plate with Folded Blades

In Dresden Plate with Folded Blades – Part 1, we showed you how to sew folded blades made with the isosceles triangles (Large Triangle) in the Key West Beauty 6 inch shape collection.


Inklingo Dresden Plate with Folded Blades  There are isosceles triangles you can use to make Dresden Plates in several sizes, including 2.25 inch!

All of the isosceles triangles are listed in the Index of Shapes under the Support & Goodies tab on the website. They make Dresden Plates in six sizes!

  • 2.25 inch with Key West 4.5 inch Small Triangle
  • 3 inch with Key West 6 inch Small Triangle
  • 3.75 inch with Castle Wall 9 inch Bonus Triangle
  • 4.5 inch with Key West 4.5 inch Large Triangle OR Key West 9 inch Small Triangle OR Feathered Star 15 inch Triangle
  • 6 inch with Key West 6 inch Large Triangle OR Feathered Star 20 inch Triangle
  • 9 inch with Key West 9 inch Large Triangle

Of course, there are blades for Dresden Plate in the Inklingo Dresden Plate shape collections too. LOL These are just a few bonus ideas.

I thought it would be fun to make an itty bitty Dresden Plate with Folded Blades. Take a good look because it’s probably my one and only!

It’s quite fiddly to work with shapes this small, so you might not want to go smaller than 4.5 inch Dresden Plates with the Key West 4.5 inch Large Triangle, okay?


Print shapes on fabric with your Inkjet

Love the lines. Quilt more!

On the other hand, if you like itty bitty, this is the easiest way to do it. You can print 8 Small Triangles from the Key West Beauty 4.5 inch shape collection on a scrap only 3.25 x 5.5 inches (landscape).

Monkey says the 2.25 inch plates are for the select group of quilters who like 60° Hexagons 0.25 inch too!

  1. Hi Yvonne,
    Do you have questions about printing? The Inklingo Handbook is nice to have, but I am happy to help too. What is slowing you down?
    Hugs, Linda & Monkey

  2. You are so clever, Linda. The fussy cut Dresden plates from the Key West Collection are wonderful. How thoughtful of you to make a tiny plate just the right size for Monkey. I know that he appreciates your “fussing” over him so much. You deserve a full plate of chocolate!! I love the POTC block (and quilt) also. So amazing what you can do with just one single fabric. You are a constant inspiration to me. I thank you for that. Betsy
