Instead of getting on with my list I watched Jean Truelove making a Dresden Plate wall hanging and fell down the rabbit hole.
I now have 2 of these finished and the blades cut out for 4 more, 2 in blues and greens and 2 in blues and greys.
I new that I had lots of blue but was surprised to find that I didn't need to repeat any fabric in the other blocks. I have used each fabric twice in each of the 3 colourways and all will have the soft yellow middles.
I have no idea as to whether they will be cushions or a quilt, I don't need either but I so
needed wanted to make the blocks.
Once they are sewn together I will decide on the fabric for borders and sashing, possibly the same for both and probably blue and multi.
Oops, dinner is ready so I am offski.
Looks lovely Pam I would go with a quilt. Love the coloursReplyDelete
A quilt it will be.Delete
Lovely design xxReplyDelete
For some reason it is my first Dresden Plate.Delete
I think some cushions would be a wonderful way to use these.ReplyDelete
These are destined to become a quilt but there will be a couple of cushions to go with it.Delete
Love your colour range, its so pretty.ReplyDelete
I love the Dresden Plate pattern. I made that design for my grand-daughter. https://kcscourt.blogspot.co.uk/2016/11/quilts-for-grandchildren.html
I have been and looked, I may well cut the next one like that.Delete
You are so funny! Can't believe you already have made two of those squares. It's so pretty! You are very talented. It would have taken me forever.ReplyDelete
I have to 'fess up that I was hiding from the housework.Delete
I keep getting sidetracked too but in your case what a great result. Love the Dresden plate and the beautiful choice of fabric.ReplyDelete
I am deeply in love with this and am planning some different sized plates.Delete
Oh my....that is very pretty Pam.ReplyDelete
Thank you Sheila, I cannot imagine why it has taken me so long to make the pattern, it is so simple.Delete
What a coincidence. I have never made a Dresden plate block but was recently gifted a bag of wedge shaped scraps. I immediately thought of a Dresden Plate block, have bought a template and now need to find time to play with ruler and scraps.ReplyDelete
