    Don't know what colors to use in circle and sashing and then borders. Any suggestions? I used my scraps for the plates.

    These look great! Is that the background fabric you'll use? How about a pale yellow for the center circle.

    I say red also. It just makes everything look brighter and you have red in your d. plates.

    I would love to see red in the center circles. Would just give the plates a nice zing. Great job. Please post finished quilt.

    I would say a solid medium yellow, medium pink, or Kona Black for your centers.

    You did a wonderful job on that! I go with red.
    You don't need sashing unless you really want it. Anything would work for the borders.

    I see one piece of red in each, so how about a red middle? By the way, I like your glasses

    I think the centers and corner posts should be red, but it must be several different reds. Maybe find a package of fat eighths, or quarters. Then some medium value print you just adore, for the sashings.

    I agree, this sounds like a great idea! I'm trying to choose centers/background and maybe sashing for my Dresden WIP right now also. I really like the idea of several different reds instead of just one fabric.

    Light yellow for centers, red or blue for sashing would be awesome.

    My first thought was a red or blue as those are the two colors that jump out at me. However, the more I look at the, the more I think a soft yellow. That would bring out the other colors in the plates.

    Love your dresdens. My thought is to have the centers white, the sashing black, and your cornerstones scrappy. Looking forward to seeing what you decide on.
