    This is a lovely tutorial, thanks for telling us. Can anyone just tell me how do you do the back? I mean, the prairy points is double, but what about the rest? The wrong side will show if you make a dresden plate to use as a teapot stander? Any suggestions how you can kwilt it on its own.

    I made a Dresden table topper without a "background" fabric. I just cut out a circle of fabric the size of the circle on the back side, making sure it was large enough to cover the raw edges of the fabric after they were turned down to make the points, and allowed for a 1/4" turn under. I used light-weight fusible web and cut it small enough to not interfere with the
    turn under seam. At this point you could choose to use a thin batting. Cut that the same size as the fusible web. I used the fusible web between the batting and the backing circle for some stability. Once the back was fused, I pinned the layers together and did some stitching in the ditch along the long lines of each pie piece. (Note: if you forego the batting, simply fuse the backing circle to the Dresden top and skip the pinning part.) To finish, I simply did a blind stitch to secure the edges of the backing circle.

    Option: before blind stitching the backing circle, you could cut small pieces of batting to place into each of the points. I chose to do this, and to help secure the pieces I used the fusible web on the bottom side of the batting.

    Hope this was helpful!

    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.
