Sewing Instructions to create a Dresden Wedges with pointed tops

  1. Fold each wedge right sides together and sew straight across the flat top end. 
  2. Turn the point right side out, centre the seam and press.
  3. Sew two wedges right sides together making sure to match the upper pointed edges. 
  4. Continue stitching wedges together into quarter and half circle sections. Sew the wedge groups together to form a circle.
  5. Background - Fold your background square in half and in half again and lightly press the folds to mark the centre and quarter points. 
  6. Matching quarter points, centre the Dresden circle over the background square and pin or glue in place.
  7. Stitch the outer Dresden points to the background square using hand or machine applique
  8. Attach your centre circle ((instructions below)

Instructions for your Centre Circle

    1. You might like to use Mylar Heat resistant circle templates for perfect, easy centre circles for your dresden plates.
    2. Alternatively, you can use lightweight interfacing to make your centre circle. Cut your centre circle from fabric and lightweight interfacing and place right side of your fabric and the fusible side of your interfacing together. 
    3. Sew around the outer edge leaving enough space open to turn your circle right side out. Roll or finger-press the edges.
    4. Centre the circle over the Dresden circle and press in place, tucking the interfacing under at the edges. Applique around the circle.

Instructions to create a dresden wedge with a flat top
Keep the top of your dresden wedges straight by turning under the edge or use fusible web to applique the dresden plate on to a background fabric. 

Instructions to create a dresden wedge with a rounded top
Use a rounded object like our Mylar heat resistant circle templates to mark a curved petal effect at the end. The edge can be turned with an iron for appliqué or with fusible web.

 More Ideas

  • You can use 10" squares, 5" squares, scraps, strips, scraps or lengths of your fabrics to cut your dresden plates.
  • You can cut three 18 degree wedges (20 points in a circle) from a 10 inch square and minimise your fabric wastage. You can also cut three 20 degree wedges (18 points in a circle) from a 10" square with little fabric wastage- please see the photos for other options.
  • You can also strip piece fabric strips together for a chequerboard look and using striped fabrics can create interesting effects.
  • You can make your centre circle any size you like as long as they cover the base of your dresden plate. Use several circles in different fabrics to creative different 3 dimensional effects.
  • Mix and match wedge sizes to make a circle - as long as you have 360 degrees covered for the full circle. For example if you alternate 15 degree and 30 degree wedges you will need to cut 8 fabrics wedges of each size. Eight x 15 degree wedges and Eight x 30 degree wedges = 360 degrees.
  • Two strips of fabric of contrasting shades can be pieced together and cut into a wedge on the vertical, can create a pleated flower effect. 
  • Strip -sets of single strips (cut maybe 1 or 112in wide) can be used to create a graded flower, or different striped effects. 
  • Wedges cut at 45-degrees can result in a spinning sawtooth design, or by alternating direction you can create a radiating star pattern.

Experiment and have fun!
