    I like it. It could be a great way to use up scraps.

    I have GOT to try that! I have a ton of fabrics that would work well for that --- and it looks like fun, too! Thank you for sharing it!

    I've never made anything with a curve as they intimidate me and I am very unsure about using a template to cut out piece-by-piece. Your plate is beautiful and I'm sure was very time-consuming, so I really admire what you have done.

    Give it a try. It's really very easy. You might start with a regular plate first to get the hang of it then move up to the multi-pieced version. Good luck.

    Nice and colorful Dresden and good Idea. I have also put a different twist to a Dresden. I put a Yoyo in the middle of my Dresden quilt that I am making. I color coordinated the yoyo.

    HHow big across is this "dresden"? Could you use just one for a table topper maybe sewn on an octagon plain fabric?
