    Used up the left-over dresden plate blades...

    After completing the table runner made out of a charm pack that I posted a few weeks ago, I had enough blades leftover to make this second project...it has insul-brite and batting in it, so it can be used as a table runner, hotpad, or candle-mat. The fabric is from the Crazy 8 line by Sandy Gervais. My sister is getting it for Christmas!

    Hi...I like the mat. I never would have thought to use the plate for anything other than a quilt. I do enjoy making the plates and next year will make a table runner and some hot pads for my kitchen.

    Lucky sister (smile). This is lovely and will add wonderful decor to her home. Great job. Thank you for sharing.

    Great use of leftovers! And no one would ever suspect that it wasn't planned that way.

    It is such a good feeling to use up everything, and get an additional item out of the deal. That is very pretty. That is a good Idea!!
