Dresdens

IMG_7179

I love dresden plates.  Miniature dresden plates?  Even better.  I think these measure about 6 1/2” across.  Last year I made these Christmas pillows using dresden plates that I meant to make more of this year.  Guess it will have to wait seeing as how Christmas is 3 days away!!!

Will be making my first Dresden's next week. I love circles, so I'm hoping I like it.

I have never made a dresden plate but it's on my list for 2011. CUTE pillow. And the pillow on your mantle--adorable! Did you make it?

Those dresdens are so cute. Love the minis. I'll have to try those sometime. Your colors are great too. And, everytime I make dresdens I love the little string of wedges (like what you have in the first photo.) It's like a little "banner". Fun photo.

I love the look of your mantle - so fresh! Beautiful!

Lauren LiGreci said...

I have recently learned to do Dresden Plate and love the technique. I tried a few different ways and can confidently recommend using the Easy Dresden Plate ruler by EZ Quilting. I like the fact you can make any size you like with the one ruler.

Wendy said...

I LOVE your dresdans (was that too personal)...

I was wonderig which ruler you are using?

Your fabric choices are beautiful and the top stiticky on each dresday just frames them so perfectly.

Allison said...

Wendy I'm just using a ruler I bought at Joann's...they have lots of them and they all are about the same!
