a new project

I do not need another new project but I just couldn't help it. I bought a Dresden plate ruler and I was just itching to try it out. I blame Kim Walus and her project on the Moda Bakeshop blog and KarenDianne for tempting me into this. :0)
It was very fun to see this come together so far. I wonder how big of a quilt this will grow into?
Happy Quilting!!

That same post prompted me to buy a template as well. I've begun a mini dresden plate in pinks for a new grandbaby coming in April. After that I want to make those Dresden Plate chargers in fall colors for my next Thanksgiving table and maybe try to make them reversible with Christmas fabrics on the opposite side if it isn't too complicated. I love chargers...they dress up a table so nicely!

I love dresden plates. One day I am going to make a quilt with them too. Have fun. Great way to use scraps.

I did the same thing this weekend!It seems like it will be a large quilt rather quickly with the size of the blocks. Are you doing you applique by machine or hand? Fun choice of mixed colors.
