Triple Play: Dresden Quilt Tutorial

We have a new tradition here at Missouri Star: Triple Play! Once a month, Jenny, Misty, and Natalie each demonstrate their own, unique take on a favorite block, technique, or template. This week these talented Doan ladies are showing off three adorable dresden projects.

  • Jenny's Tiny Dresden quilt is made with twenty-two 2.5 inch strips (jelly rolls) and 5 inch squares (charms) of precut fabric. Jenny's fabric is Shadow Play 2.5" Strips by Maywood Studio (a Missouri Star exclusive!) and Bee Backgrounds 5" Stackers by Lori Holt for Riley Blake. Other supplies include Fusible Featherweight Interfacing for Pellon, the Missouri Star Mini Dresden Template, and a Missouri Star Bamboo Creaser Tool. Jenny also whipped up and quick and easy pillow using her extra pieces, and it is so cute!
  • Misty's Fancy Dresden Fans is made with 5 inch squares of precut fabric (charms). Misty's fabric is Gingham Gardens 5" Stackers by My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake. Missouri Star Large Dresden Plate Template for 10" Squares
  • Natalie's quilt is made with 10 inch squares of precut fabric (layer cakes). Her fabric is Bliss Bold and Bright Digitally Printed Tiles by Northcott Fabrics for Missouri Star. This is a foundation piecing project, so she also used 10" Paper Piecing Squares.


  • Jenny's Tiny Dresden (49" x 58")
  • Misty's Fancy Dresden Fans (75" x 75")
  • Natalie's Improv Dresden Geese (54" x 64")
