I began a Dresden Plate quilt earlier this year. Using a line of 30′s repro prints by Chloe’s Closet for Moda, the plate petals were all cut with an Accuquilt Go Cutter. Since that initial effort, this small Dresden plate runner has sat, untouched by quilty hands.
I began so ambitiously, sure I would end up with a queen size quilt. It didn’t take long to see I was limited by fabric and well to be honest, patience! Lol however, I have chosen to see the sunlight at the end of the tunnel, and I am chipping away at this lovely little quilt.
Day one, I took all the pointy tip petals and pinned them all in half with right sides of fabric facing each other.
Day two, I stitched the tips of each individual petal.
Day three, I turned each petal right side out.
Day Four, I pressed each petal flat. This prepared them for attaching to each other.
Day Five, I pinned them in pairs.
Day Six, I splurged time wise and spent a little over an hour to piece them all into their finished plates.
This was when I realized that what initially looked like zillions of petals actually amounted to 3 blocks. LOL funny right??
So there it is! One of my Dresden plates. Now to finish up with some background and a center. I hope to accomplish that by Friday so I will have a picture to share. I’d like to invite you back for Friday’s post which will be the beginning of my Accuquilt GO cutter giveaway! I’m super excited about this one. It will be fabulous to cross this project and giveaway off my UFO list.
