Traditional Dresden Plate

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How it all came together. How the hand applique turned out. My machine do not like all of the seams. So, I wanted this one to be just so. Hence, hand applique. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure that if you have dark fabrics in your plate, that you DO back your center so you do not have those fabrics showing through. I know I said this before, but, this is a very good point. :-) Just a note; I have not been trimming my blocks. I will wait until I am ready to put them all together. ( I do check them for size, as I go.)

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric & thread for piecing. Superior Thread
  • "The Bottom Line" This thread is wonderful for hand applique. 60 wt. Poly

Thank you so much Pam for your comments. The corners "DO" seem to punctuate your colors in your petals.
