Le Grand Desert 150% Willyne Hammerstein
Print on fabric to sew Willyne’s plates for better results than with traditional Dresden Plate quilt templates. Large size.
Sew by hand or machine or both (hybrid) or print templates for EPP.
Le Grand Desert 150% is for one of the intriguing quilts in Millefiori Quilts 3 by Willyne Hammerstein, published by Quiltmania.
This Inklingo PDF includes all of the shapes for Le Grand Desert in a larger size than the templates in the book. The center of the quilt (before borders) is approx 57 x 84 instead of 38 x 56 inches (75%).
I also included 3 “bonus” shapes, which you might find useful to replace some of the small setting shapes.
A Choice of Sizes for Le Grand Desert
The same shapes are also available at 75%, 100%, and 125% of the original size and are listed on the page for the Millefiori Quilts 3 book (link below).
Milefiori Quilts 3 includes detailed diagrams for assembling the quilt top.

When you buy this shape collection, I manually add the Dresden Plate Quilt Design Book (74 pages) as soon as I see your order, so you can download it too. The design book includes instructions for sewing and pressing other Dresden Plate designs.
It is much easier to print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo (TWO methods of fussy cutting) and sew with a running stitch or combine hand and machine piecing in a hybrid.
On the other hand, there are 8 Good Ways to Use Inklingo for EPP if that is the method you prefer.

There are some good, short videos collected under a tab on the page for the Millefiori Quilts 1 book which show how Inklingo makes this design even more fun by hand or by machine or a combination of both.
