Dresden Plate...Progress

I haven't shared my progress on the

Dresden Plate quilt for awhile...

All 400 of those petals have been sewn into

20 dresden rings...

This is what my sewing table looks like today...

I am layering fusible stabilizer

face to face with the rings,

then stitching them together...

I prefer the Pellon Fusible Featherweight

for this technique...

it turns those curved edges so nicely.

After the stitching is complete,

I trim away the excess stabilizer...

Now it is ready to turn right side out...

The ring and the center are both right side out...

The plate is nearly 14 inches round...

I am thinking I will cut at least a 

16 inch background square

for the block.

They are piling up...

That's as far as I went today...

next time I will cut the 

white background squares.

40 calves on the ground as of today.

  1. Lovely plates and great information.

  2. Glad you found some useful information. Thanks for your comment.

    My Best To You,

  3. I have always resisted Dresden Plates because I always thought they needed to be hand-sewn on...will you attach them to the background fabric by machine or by hand? I like the way you turned it! So glad you have 40 on the ground!! Love seeing all your babies.

    1. Dresden's are all machine work, for me. Yes, they will be stitched down to the background fabric by machine with monopoly thread. I will take pics and post them as I make more progress on this project.
