Dresden Plates Update!

Posted on July 7th, by Amy in Doll Quilt Swap. 42 comments

Just popping in to show you where I’ve gone with the Dresden Plates!  They are laid on top of one another so far – I’m hand stitching them in place, it’s just like stitching a binding in place.

I hope you don’t get tired of seeing this project…I’m really happy to be making it for my DQS partner :)

Are you working on a project for a friend?

  1. It's Great! I like how the patterned fabrics make it look like a 5 petal flower… the polka dot ones fade back.. so darling!

  2. This is incredible!! I love the pieced border and especially the layers. The white layer is a perfect break in the layers. True inspiration!!!

  3. Wow! Truly amazing. The pieced scrappy border finishes it so well. You have a luck friend. Thanks for the amazing inspiration!

  4. This is absolutely Darling!!! I wish that I had the patience (and time) for something that beautiful :)

  5. That is so nice! I wouldn't have thought to layer the different sizes like that….thanks for hte idea.

  6. YOU could NEVER tire me of things you make !!! it is outrageously gorgeous !!! I started some gowns for a friend's THREADS OF LOVE chapters , but had to stop for our patio/deck rehab project that needed to be done when my husband was off work ….. now I'll be working on your quilt along blocks for this week ……

  7. I think the plates are gorgeous! I would love to try them….someday! I'm thinking of starting a QOV(quilts of valor) so I'm researching material today :)

  8. Your Dresden Plates are gorgeous! I love the colors, so happy. I'm working on quilts for my grandson who is scheduled to appear in Aug. I'm having such fun! Looks like you are too.

  9. So pretty!!! I love the light fabrics you put in between!

    And yes I'm working on a bedskirt for a friend now that's driving me nuts lol

  10. That is one wild plate. I'm sure the person receiving it will be crazy happy.
    Hope you have a great day.

  12. Quite the inspirational piece. I don't think anyone is going to tire of seeing your progress with this little quilt. It's gorgeous. ~karen

  13. I love this version of the dresden plate. Such pretty colors. Can't wait to see the finished quilt. Love & blessings from NC!

  14. My ruler has been ordered. So now I wait and look at these every day! I bought a cheap set of dresden templates, just to try it out but i am not to impressed, it only fits 12 and they seem to wide to me. But i think for a first try i did not to bad. I will have to get something up on my blog, maybe tomorrow.
