    I was so thrilled about the miniquilts in the alzquilts.org
    page you posted, that I HAD to try this out.
    Do you think this could pass as a dresden if I find a way to make the round shape of the pedals more accurate?
    Or are 8 pedals "only" a flower?
    Could not put the pic in a pm

    this is oksewglads link

    http://www.alzquilts.org/quiltsforsale.html

    I adore the art minis, no way I could do this. But I saw no dresden (quilting a big one right now)
    I was just playing around and have to go to bed now - past midnight over here. Might try again tomorrow after work.

    Great bunch of quilts ... and I scanned thru looking for a mini dresden, but no luck either.

    You have more patience than I, to make that mini ... 8 petals in a mini would still be a dresden in my books! :)

    T, these are adorable! Dresden plates can have as many as 16 petals can't they? I'd say this is a D Plate I just checked Rhonda's ebook on Dresden plates. Think she has ones on the smaller side--here it is:

    And her free templates info is here:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-144668-1.htm

    Can't wait to see how this will turn out. I do very little applique, don't know why. The AAQI site has design inspirations for just about anyone--maybe it's a color combo or a technique. G

    I just made a google search on Dresden plate images--was one with 20 petals. Also some with points. Robert Kaufmann has a free pattern that show you how to make the pointed version. You could adapt this to your size. I would think the points would be easier to manage than the rounded ends. If you prefer the rounded ends it won't take you much adapting to get your block the way you want it to look. Personally I think it looks pretty good right now!

    :lol: :lol: :lol: I was chuckling all morning during work after reading your answer this morning.

    "Think she has ones on the smaller side"

    You know which trigger to pull! Will see what I come up with.
    Rhondas are great.........but binding at that scale!?
    Thank you for the links.
