    I love the Dresden Plate Block. What you can do is alternate a solid square between the Dresden Plate Blocks if you want to make it a king size. When I did one, I did Stitch in the Ditch on the plate and a flower design in the middle circle.
    When I came up with an odd # block (you said 21), I cut the extra Dresden Plate into 4's and used them as corner stones in the border with the end of the blade pointing toward the quilt. It turned out well. Good Luck.

    Wow the quilting on that one is gorgeous. I love it.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Your quilt is so beautiful! Love the 12 patch cornerstones and sashing, both color and design! I can't see the color inside the blades; did you use thread to match each blade or all white? You're creating an heirloom; hope whoever gets it appreciates it!

    I sometimes jsut do free motion meandering including the plate designs. They really come out looking nice in spite of the fact that I didn't do anything special for the plate.

    AndiR- these are all wonderful. Thanks for posting these. I have a Dresden Plate to have quilted too and these all have been beautifully finished. Mine are swap blocks so they are each unique. The setting isn't as ordered as these but I think I've got a plan. Thanks again!

    I just finished a Dresden Plate and had someone quilt it for me. I have a Longarm, but am not ready to tackle something like it. I pieced my plates without sashing, so I had her echo a plate like motif in the area where the four blocks joined. To quilt the plates she put a daisy motif in the yellow circle and did a curved diamond shape on each wedge then in the ditch around the whole outside circle. I used a narrow yellow accent border then a fairly wide background border. She used feathers in it. There were lots of other touches too. It is absolutely stunning. It looked pretty good without all the quilting, but amazing with it. Someday I'm going to learn to longarm quilt like that!!!! Donna

    I think your quilting is perfect for this design. And I like you sashing too. That's a very pretty quilt.
