Default Reversible Dresden Christmas Runners

I decided to make runners with these Dresden’s plate blocks I had already made thinking I would use them for a quilt. They are pretty much the same. I used the same back and binding on both and they could be reversible. All Christmas fabrics used. Size after quilting is 22 x 57 inches. I really liked them better after quilting. I straight stitched 1/4 inch away from blades. In the circle center and on the white I meander quilted. I also stitched 1/4 inch in squares. I hope you are able to see the stitching. I laid them on my sofa and this seemed to be the best picture. Hope you like!-Toogie

I like the contrast of your dresdan blades of light and dark. Lovely runner and wonderful project for your extra blocks.

Beautiful table runners. I made some last year as gifts for my daughters. I used the log cabin pattern for mine but I love the look of the Dresden plate.
