Dresden Carnival

Dresden Carnival: 16 Modern Quilt Projects *Innovative Designs* by Marian B. Gallian and Yvette Marie Jones

Dresden plates are a classic and these designs play with the original idea in a variety of ways. Many but not all of these designs are floral – dresden plates lend themselves so well to floral motifs – and range from very traditional to more modern. This book includes pattern pieces (which could be copied or traced from the page) throughout as well as larger pieces in a perforated section (for easy removal) in the back.

full disclosure: I borrowed this book from the Capital Area District Library through the awesome MeLCat ILL system
