    I can't figure this out......

    I recently copied a beautiful dresden plate pattern made with a jelly roll and large enough to fit a 48" tabletop but, can't for the life of me, figure out how to back it without appliqueing it to another piece of fabric. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks a bunch!!! http://lurineg.blogspot.com .au/2009/12/dresden plate-tutorial.html

    Your link doesn't work. However, I have never seen a Dresden plate that was not appliqued to a backing fabric.

    I tried the post and you're right, it doesn't work anymore.... odd that I was able to get the pattern, anyway I really hope someone can give me some ideas.

    If it's 48" could you just sew it right sides together to a circle of backing and "birth' it. You could use iron-on fleece or batting and iron it to the wrong side before you turn it.

    I saw this pattern somewhere not long ago and printed it out. The one I saw was appliqued on to a white on a white block of fabric. I have never seen a one that was not appliqued on.

    That's a great link/tutorial. Thanks Tesspug. I see it's just one BIG block. (I still think joining the 'birthed' Dresdens would be interesting.

    I have never seen a Dresden Plate that was not appliqued to another fabric, but I am always open to new resolves. I will be watching this post to see the responses.

    P.S. I don't think that the plate is appliqued to the white background simply because it looks as if the white is only used as a backdrop for the tute.
