Although it might look complicated to make, it really isn’t as the Dresden Plate (poinsettia) blocks are appliqued using fusible web. Why not download the pattern today – it’s only £3.50 – and you’ll have a table setting ready for Christmas!
As a special ‘Christmas present’ you can download the templates for a 6 x 12 rectangular block here, with thanks to Electric Quilt for working its magic!
