    Modern Dresden Plate

    A traditional block using modern fabrics. I guess that makes it a Modern Dresden. I am still not so sure what makes a quilt "modern". I used Darlene Zimmerman's EZ Dresden ruler to make the petals, then quilted the center using a curved arc - reminds me of a Spirograph game when I was a kid. The background and border quilting just followed the pattern of the fabric. I sure like my new table topper.
