Thread: Dresden Table Topper

    Well, I decided to try another dresden plate. I still had problems with my center circle but it came out better than the last one. I'm going to use this as a table topper. I have a question: When I quilt this, do I quilt over the plate blades and circle, or just quilt around the plate?

    Gorgeous! The purple center is a great choice! Really makes the thing pop. I would quilt a spiral motif in the center, quilt a quarter inch inside the seams of each blade and then stipple the background or maybe just outline the leaves. No marking that way! :lol: But it is your quilt! Any way you decide to quilt it will look wonderful with such a pretty top to start out with!

    Beautiful quilt. I see nothing wrong with it. Quilt it as you see fit. My quilts always tell me how they want to be quilted.

    You did a great job!!

    I have 12 dresden plate blocks that I've made and I was unsure what I wanted to do with them.

    Table toppers are a great idea!!

    I really like this. I like the way you didn't repeat the fabrics in a definite pattern around the plate. I like the randomness of it.
