    So you want a Dresden but don't want to appliqué it onto a backing fabric- right? How about using a CIRCLE of Pellon or fleece that would cover the back but not extend beyond the inner points? Your outer points are already finished, your Pellon won't ravel & you could stitch between the plates to hold it down.

    The picture did look like the white was the background for the picture. It looked difficult to make until looking through the tute. Really pretty and easy. I might make it and fuze it to insulbrite and use it for a hotpad on the table. The ruler is now on my bucket/wish list

    I have used this tutorial to make a centre piece for a table and I birthed it with a circle of fabric, it worked out great.

    the only dresden i know of that is not appliqued, is quilt as you go. had the great luck to attend class with analie belden who has book on this technique. her book "Thoroughly Modern Dresden" is wonderful. check it out for next time. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss...e+be%2Caps%2C0

    Eleanor Burns' method is to cut a piece of heat-n-bond lite the same size as the dresden plate. Sew with right sides together, leaving an opening, then turn right side out. At this point, she has you iron this on a square. But, you could use fabric, instead of heat-n-bond, which would bind the edges when turned right side out.

    Have you checked out Misssouri Star Quilt company's videos on how Jenny does a dresden plate?
