I've made up a bunch of Dresden Plate blocks in hopes of making a bed quilt. (Hopefully- I'm having a tough time figuring out how to lay them out to get the dimensions right... I am out of fabric at 21 blocks, so I need either a lot of sashing, or filler blocks- but that is another story.)
Since I am trying to plan out the entire quilt, I first wanted to think of how to quilt it. And this is where I am having trouble. The blocks are 16". I will have to quilt over the plate, I can't just quilt around it.
I kind of would like to enter this into a show or two (low key, like state fair)- so I think stippling is not the way to go. They always seem to prefer quilting specific to the quilt.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to quilt Dresden plates, recognizing that I will need to quilt on the plate itself?
