    Question Center of Dresden Plate

    I am finishing a very large block dresden plate quilt and my question is for the center do you use white, or can it maybe a pretty complimentary pastel?
    Thanks for your comments

    You can use whatever color you like the best.

    Or a large print with a really interesting element in the center of the circle that coordinates with the colors in the wedges.

    I like the centers to be solid color, but there is no rule that says it has to be white.

    My DH refuses to eat off any china that has patterns in the middle. He says that he doesn't want to find "surprises" as he finishes his meal. lol

    Whatever color you like will be perfect. If you use white, you will probably need to line it or you might have some see-through around edge.
