Dresden Dreaming...

I love, love, love dresden quilts! I have always yearned to make one, but was just to dang scared. It looks difficult and very time consuming, both categories I do not have much patience with. Sometime ago, I ordered an easy dresden tool and promptly forgot about it. It finally arrived in the mail today and I thought I would give it a try! Oh me, oh me, oh my! My poor scrap box is in trouble!

I present to you my very first Dresden plate. Let's call her....uhmmm, Spring Sunrise! Or, Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me, or (oh, this is so fitting) Rhapsody in Redneck! Ha!

Isn't it FABULOUS!!! (Don't let the untrimmed threads allow you to think otherwise, they will be gone in a snapola! err, or a snipola!) I am on a roll tonight, aren't I???

And, just in case you didn't "get" the fabulousness of this plate, one more looky!

See ya! I am off to "fix some more dresden plates"!

  1. Now you've done it!! I too have that ruler (never used) ... so now I have to make a dresden plate too!!! Years ago a group of us made dresden plates using a template.....oh the pain!.... only lots of steam ironing made them sit flat.

    Love the fabrics you have used!

    Happy Sewing Dresdens!
