    Mini dresdon plate

    Just playing around this afternoon. Wonder how many I have the patience for? LOL! Got my sequence mixed up, too many blues in one spot.

    Thanks for the kind remarks. It is 5 inches across, may be a potholder. I don't know if I have the patience for alot of them!!

    Very cute and it will make a nice pin cushion if you put 2 together and applique circles in the middles.

    Love it! If you want to make something big, maybe you could make one or two at a time. Would be an ongoing project.

    Oh, so cute. Just three of them with stems and leaves would make a really cute wallhanging. If you did them in golds and browns you could do sunflowers for fall.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I can see another quill to make with big and little dresdons out of scraps sewed on muslin. I just have three other quilts in my brain ahead of it. I love the little dresdon you made.

    I'm going to redraft a mini Dresden so the hole in the middle isn't so big. Looking to do a 4 inch one. Wish me luck.

    I think it looks just great. Do what you can and then when you need a break from a project, does a few more. Before you know it you have enough for a quilt.

    That's so cute. We had a shop hop this week and I bought the Dresden that finishes @ 4.5", can't wait to do one.
