    Completed my dresden plate for my Grandaughter.

    Here is the completed article. I am quite pleased with my first attemp, especially considering the random types of materials I used.

    I love the Dresdan pattern. It appears you have the background material as your center. Cool. I have only made one for a pillow top.

    Fun wall hanging! Love your color combinations!
    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    Very pretty, can't go wrong with a dresden, so many different color ways you can do with it!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    I love your quilt! Also like the tabs for hanging it-can I "borrow" that idea for my DD b'day quilt? Dresdens are fun to make.

    You did a wonderful job - these are really fun to make and changing up the colors add a whole new dimension to the plates. Good job.

    Thanks guys. It is a 24" block, ideal for a wall hanging.
