What advice would you give someone starting this project? The Dresdan plates were fun. When piecing, sew a full 1/4" seam so that the plate lays perfectly flat. I did a blanket stitch around the traditional Dresdan to give it a handstitched look and straight stitch around the modern Dresdan to give it a cleaner look. I made the center circle using a smaller template than the 4" class template so the circle would be smaller.
