What are you most proud of? The center. I cut a larger square and repeiced to give the look, then made the circle. I wanted it to kind of be a spiral effect. Though it didn't turn out that way, it does look cool. I did not cut two 12.5x12.5 but instead pressed the outer part of the dresden plate in a 1/4 inch then appliqued. I didn't want to use so much of the background fabric and I think it turned out fairly well.

Would like to try this with different colors or even solid material.
