    Another Dresden table topper

    I have an addiction to Dresden plates. I had originally made my own template, but decided to buy Darlene Zimmerman's template ( under $6 using JoAnn Coupon). I love making one for a table topper. I back it with fleece.. so easy... takes about 2-3 hours to make a gift for friends. The photo turned out purple... it is really baby blue. Hope you enjoy seeing..

    Very pretty. Why do you back it with fleece? I just made my first Dresden Plate block, added a border and backing for a table topper.

    border and backing seems hard for such a small project. I just cut a circle out of fleece so it fit just below the point and doesn't show on the from and stick 1/4 inch away from seam on every other section. Fast for me...

    Great job. I haven't made a Dresden Plate yet but want to very much. What size is your table topper? I would love to make one for my sister.

    Adorable fabric!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
