What advice would you give someone starting this project? To get a Dresden Plate tool to cut by. Take your time and cut very carefully. Sew an exact 1/4" seam, not scant so your plate will lie flat when done. If you like things, put them on paper and make a quilt. It's fun !!!!

Thank you ! These colors are from the $1 fat quarter sale I went to last week. I really stocked up and I might go back and get more before July runs out.

Great fabrics - so colorful! Working with circles can be tricky, but this is just perfect!!

Hi, I WISH I had used a Dresden tool with my Sunflower Babies quilt. I had an awful time getting those circles to come out right. I'm never going to make another Dresden Plate quilt without that tool. Thank you !!
