Dresden Plate Table Topper

I've got to run, I'll be back to post the details later... 
 Details...  I was stitting around last night avoiding grocery shopping when the thought struck me, "I want to make a Dresden Plate!"  so I did ;)  I have the template and a stash of fabric, it makes sense ;D
 Once I had one made, I had to make another and another :)  I made one with the 5" measurement and two with the 4" measurement.  And guess what?  They look REALLY cute all together :)
 so of course, I have to make them into another table runner :)  Here is the cute quilt sandwich :)
 I did an all over stipple quilting like I saw on an example on Oh, Frannson.  I am IN LOVE with this runner!!  And, YES, it is made with the heat resistant batting!

  1. Beautiful,Im going to try and make one,thanks for the inspiration.Love Jill xx

  2. Aaaack! You're making me crazy jealous! : )

    Questions... What are the dimensions of your table runners? The patchwork ones specifically. - Did you turn under the edges of your dresden plates or did you just applique them straight on? Did you zig zag or do whatever-the-other-kind-of-stitching-is-called?

    BTW, although I'm sure I'd love the quilt guild, I thought about it through the night and I just better not. One more thing, you know... Thanks for inviting me though! I hope you have a blast.

  3. Thanks Jill- It was SUPER fun to make :)
    Myra- I used the quilt in a day ruler for the dresden quilt. If you go here... you can see how I did it. I did put a circle of wonder under on the plate and then pressed it in place before I zig zaged around the edge. I also used zap zap circle maker to make the centers. It's a pre-drawn fusable interfacing to make circles quickly. I'll add my instructions later.. when I've got time. I am off to show and then to the evil GROCERy SToRE!!! :p

  4. Oh, Marion, it makes two of us because I'm in love with it too! Isn't it fun to make Dresden Plates? I just LOVE it! I've done my loathed grocery shopping this Morning. Hallelujah :)
