Dresden Plate

A new project! As many of you know, I seldom do anything but straight stitch piecing. I don't usually do curves, and almost never do applique work. However... a friend gifted me with some 30s style FQs, and I found that I could no longer resist the urge to make a classic style quilt with them. After giving it some thought, I decided to do a Dresden Plate (modified to have pointy tops like a fan) which meant... TA DAH.. biting the applique bullet. Here's a block I have finished, and the rest are assembled and waiting for the hand applique. Hopefully I'll have a finished quilt in a month or so.


  1. This will be a beautiful quilt. I love the 30s fabric and the Dresden Plate pattern. The colors are so soft and warm looking. Hope the hours you spend on the hand work are enjoyable.

  2. Very pretty. And you will surely have a breutiful quilt..
