Dresden Plate

Dresden plate quilt blocks are so popular right now on many quilting sites.  The block has always been one of my favorite designs.  I began mine last Fall and just put the center on it yesterday! I decided on the cherry fabric for the center of mine.  I hope to get more done soon!

Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs has a free pattern on her site and has formed the Scrappy Plate Club.  A great way to use up scraps!  Although mine is not made with scraps I have bins full of leftover scraps.  I so need to use them! :)

I have one more border on another quilt top I have been working  on forever!  I will take pics and post it as soon as I get it finished and pressed really well. 

And then there's Tiny Town I am working on!  I like to have an applique project in progress along with a pieced top so when I am watching television I have some handwork to do.

That's all for now ... gotta do some organizing of scrapbook supplies! 

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

What a beautiful quilt. I do not do any hand sewing but I cannot sit in front of the tv without my knitting or needlepoint. I am not a real fan of tv but I like to keep my husband company and we do like movies at home.

Looks like old-tyme fabrics. Cute.♥♫

Your Dresden Plates are so sweet, love the fabric.

Love yours! I'm going to start Anne's. I haven't decided if I'll use my scraps or buy the kit from Fat Quarter Shop. I don't think I have enough cute scraps to make ti something I'd like. :-) I have tons of scraps, but I don't think they'd coordinate as nicely as yours. Very well done!

It's beautiful, Donna! Was it difficult to do? It looks hard! Worth it though. This is going to be a gorgeous quilt! xo Jen

A lovely block, Donna.
I really love the cherry fabric in the centre.
I like to have handwork while I am watching TV too.

Have fun scrapbooking!

Donna I love your new look. So sweet. Your dresden plate is gorgeous. I have only made one dresden plate quilt and I gave it as a gift.

Dresden Plate is one of my favorites. I remember in the 70s, my mama and I each made one.

The cherries in the middle is the cutest part.
