    I have just finished piecing a queen size dresden plate. My question is: Would you do it on a longarm or just do SID on a domestic? I have checked out the gallery here and it has been done both ways. I love the one done by Charisma, but, I am in no way that talented. I have always just SID my other ones, but, now that I have theTin Lizzie, I'm wondering if it is feasible. Any suggestions or feedback would greatly be appreciated. The attached picture is a mockup someone on the board did for me, so atleast you can see the pattern.

    Mockup done by board member - mine is actually 25 blocks set on point like this one.

    Since you have a Tin Lizzie,I would probably use it.

    I would use your Tin Lizzie and really make those Dresden's pop! For more ideas just do an image google search and you will see tons of more pictures. Post it for all to see when you are done, I'd love to see it!

    I have it loaded on the Tin Lizzie. However, I am not that proficent yet on the longarm. I am scared I will wreck the top and it needs to be finished for July 9 when we go to DH's family. I guess my question now is, do I do a small meander around the plates or loop-de-loops or what? I would really like something that is easy to do and not have to spend hours ripping out the stitches because they are too sloppy. I really need to spend more time building my confidence with more practise obviously, but as usual, I have a very strict deadline.
