Dresden Plate

I've always been intimidated by the dresden plate block.  At Moda Bake Shop I saw this pattern and that really wet my appetite.  I needed to do a program for my quilt group and decided it was time to get this block done.  I had purchased a EZ Dresden ruler at Walmart and decided to start there to get a smaller project done.  I usually don't make quilts by the pattern and change them up somehow, or use a favorite method of constrution.  Here is the project I made to learn how to make the block:

I still need to add borders.  I love how it turned out and the block was soooooo easy.  Now I can make the plate chargers for my table.  Superman likes how they look also, so it will be a good project.  I don't think I mentioned that I re-covered the dining room chairs just before Easter.  They needed to be done such a long time.  That too was an easier than imagined project.  Happy Sewing!

  1. Cindy, your dresden flowers are so cute! And your presentation of the method at the guild meeting was very good. Inspired me to get out some "plates" I made awhile ago and actually do something with them.

    Happy stitching!
