    My first attempt at a dresden plate

    I have been away for several weeks visiting family in Canada. On my return I thought I would like to try doing the Dresden plate. So with some trepidation (as I thought it would be beyond me) I followed Jenny Doan's (missouri star quilt co.) tutorial and wallah. Look what transpired!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Welcome back! Always nice to go on a family visit. Dresden plate was my first quilt and I love it still. Your colors are great, are you going to make a quilt of them?

    Oh wow - beautiful! I didn't know that Jenny had a Dresden Plate tutorial - will check it out.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Isn't Jenny wonderful, how she make it look so simple, and incourages us to try and do.....

    She is not a fussy sewer, just do it......

    Awesome! I have a friend who used her dads (may he rest in peace) old ties to make an entire dresden quilt top. She used a black background....just like yours....very nice!

    I really love this pattern and you did a great job. It is easy and fast to do. I am making hot pads and place mates for a friend from this pattern.
