    I have mine with pointed blades almost finished. I did it like the Missouri Star Quilt Co. video. It was pretty simple. I did the applique with ivisible thread.

    I've seen many Dresden Plates that look like sunflowers and they always look good to me. Do a sample block and see what you think.

    Mine is shown in that link. I used a template to do the blades and handstitched it together while we were camping. I appliqued them on the background but with regular thread, I can't handle the invisible thread. I've been battling myself to NOT make another one -- to get a quilt done for a friend that I'd promised her. :) :) But my NEXT quilt will be a Dresden.. :)

    Someone posted this link a couple of months ago. I fell in love with design. I've put this on my top 10 list of things to do soon.

    Should be some inspiration here.

    Bamamama, your green and tan quilt is just beautiful! More and more I am seeing these two colors together. I must say, I never thought of it, but I sure do like it! :)

    I am also almost done with my Dresden plate. I used the pointed stars and I also followed the tutorisl in this board. There are some beauties out there. This board is very talented. Good Luck

    I made one a couple of months ago and I used scraps and done a yellow center and done strip piecing for the sashing and border. then put on the binding. they are easy to make and I also used muslin for my blocks so they wouldn't be so heavy with all the other material of the plates on them because I didn't want to cut the material from behind the plates. I was proud of mine. check out My first attempt at Dresden plate on the board and you can see mine. Do you a test block first or sew you blades and lay them on the block to see how they look. what looks good to you. There are no rules on them. Good luck and let us see.

    I have started on one using scraps of small prints in a lot of different colors, I want it to be real scrappy. I am not sure what I will make out of it, maybe a table topper. I plan to stitch them on Kona Cotton Snow. Later I would like to make one in maroon, navy and tan for a king size bed. I am using a ruler.
