    I have started a new project and want to use the Dresden Plate pattern with the rounded tops. I zig-zagged the center circle an I need advise on those tops. Do I try to turn the seam over staying with the 1/4 seam and the round shape or do I use the zig-zag again through the entire Dresden.

    Sorry about the focus but this is the center with the zigzag

    I chaired a committee making a Dresden for a Library fund raiser. I did my blocks with hand applique. Some people sewed theirs face down onto muslin, then clipped and turned them right side up to sew down with fancy machine stitches onto the background, so they had finished applique. Some used iron on interfacing around the edges, then sewed the blocks down with tiny machine applique stitches. We all agreed that in the end, the method was not that important, so long as the plates were flat on the background.

    DO WHAT YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH. It will turn out just fine.

    Beautiful colors, and stitching as well! I don't think you need to stitch the whole plate, just the circle and top, unless you want to. I think it looks nice without it.

    Your color choices are stunning. Beautiful! I think you got sound advice here and will have a gorgeous, jaw dropping quilt when it is done. Good job!
