    This is the pattern that led me to make the Dresden Plate Basket. I figured if I could make this, I could make the basket.

    My First Dresden Plate, It came out bigger than I expected. 20 x 20

    Perfect for a table with nice color and contrast as a centerpiece over another cloth.

    Fabulous fabric choices.
    Aren't stripes great? They do all the work!

    That is absolutely beautiful - I never would have thought to use a print like that, but it really gives it a wonderful "punch". Great work!

    Thank you so much for posting this picture. I love it.
    Dresden Plates are a favorite of mine. I have some of the
    print you used. I only have a half a yard and couldn't figure out anything to do with it. Now, I know I'm going to make this beautiful plate for a table runner.

    I started cutting out a smaller Dresden Plate with the "Swiss Cheese Looking" leftover fabric.

    It took more than a yard to make the original Dresden Plate, so I alternated with the green fabric. I don't know how far you will go with just half a yard. But I am just a beginner quilter. Perhaps I didn't cut well.

    That is cute....there will not be a quilt. I am a beginner and this plate was made just to see if I could do it, nothing more. I keep making "ONE BLOCK" to see if I can actually do it. But with all the compliments I've rec'd, I really need to pick a pattern and make a whole quilt. In time, I guess.

    Great job! Love the unusual combination and fussy cutting! The modern fabrics combination with the traditional design is so young and refreshing.
