What are you most proud of? I hate to waste fabric, I used strips that are too narrow to use with a seam. The raw edges are worked into the basket weave design or caught with quilting in the binding. I used scotch tape to hold the woven strips together when adding the last two edge strips. Even the binding is done using (trapped) raw edge strips. Everything is machine stitched.

Thanks Pam! The 2012 BOM Dresden is the inspiration behind this... now if I can only figure out the rest of the quilt!

Love this clever, clever idea! Plus the fabrics, of course! Where is that lovely Dresden plate going to live?

Thanks Darns. I don't know its destination yet - just had to work with these fabrics and play around with a Dresden design in my head. I sketched it out last night. Now to do the math and pick more fabrics....
