I have long admired images like these . . . . .
.....of the traditional quilt design called the "Dresden Plate."
I had no idea how the pie-sliced pieces went together but was glad to find THIS tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
Step by step it takes you through the completion of a Dresden Plate quilt square.
I chose these green and cream shades to cut my 20 pie/plate slices.
They match wonderfully with my living room couch- after all -that's where my pillow was ending up!!
After about an hour of cutting, stitching and ironing my Dresden was starting to emerge . . . . .
And then in went the matching centre circle. Truthfully, I found this the hardest part!!
Sewn onto some natural muslin, my shades-of-green Dresden plate made a lovely new pillow for my cozy couch in our living room.
I've had a busy weekend here at home - sewing, painting and re-freshing.
I have so much to share in upcoming posts including the purchase of a new large piece of furniture along the lines of these :
Can't wait to share.....
