    Don't officially sign me up just yet ... but here's a block I made yesterday. The center isn't quite as bright in person. The camera flash went a little crazy!

    The background is beige with a subtle crazy quilt-like pattern. Hope it's okay.

    I'm sooooo slow when it comes to applique, so let me make sure I'll have enough time to complete the blocks before officially signing up. I'll let you know. :)

    HI, I sooo wanted to do this swap . I have a wedding and to many other comittments for the next few months to sign up for the swap. But I have used the pattern to start making blocks from my stash. Will use the blocks for a quilt for my gd to take to college with her. I hope I can join in with a swap soon... Love your pattern. I am trying to get a good leaf pattern . Sending a pic of what I think are spring flower colors for the flowers......

    Deb, your block is just stunning! I have made dresden plate blocks using Eleanor Burns method, but not with the addition of the leaves...that's what makes the block sooo striking! I will look at this and think about possibly joining. Just have to look at my calendar and know I can do it...perhaps I'll give one block a try and see how long it takes to make...your tute is great by the way!

    I may need to join this swap! I have been wanting to do a dresden/flower quilt! I will pm you if I can 'clear the calendar' and make this work. Thanks for doing this swap, it looks like fun.

    I am sorely tempted, but after looking at what I already have going I sadly won't be joining you ladies for this swap, but will watch and admire all the beautiful blocks! I did print out and start to make one of the dresden plate blocks and remembered how fun they are! Maybe my schedule will allow me to join in the the fall one a bit later this year!

    Pleae make sure you PM me if you want to join, sometimes I don't get to the computer right away. I don't want anyone to think that I am ignoring them! And if Spring is to busy for you, think about the Fall flowers with the same pattern, only fall colors!

    I love this block. Quick question, did you enlarge the template at all before you cut out the pattern for it?

    Thank-you.

    No, I printed out the template directly from Quilterscache.com. What I did do, though, was to trace the petals on to a plastic file folder, that ensures that my petals will all be the same size.

    Do we have to put in leaves? I'm doing a PP plate.
    All 12 should be same # of blades, right?

    thanks...
