Dresden Plate - Page 2

Then pin the entire plate, centered, onto your background fabric. If you wish, you may machine sew just shy of the 1/4" seam line all around the plate before pinning on, and use that as your turning guideline. Appliqué to the background square...

Now flip the block over, and very carefully cut away the background fabric in the plates center, leaving 1/4" as a seam allowance. And there you have...One Dresden Plate!!

This quilt has thin sashing strips, with small squares at each blocks corners...and is surrounded by a slightly wider border strip...

Happy Quilting!
