I chose to hand stitch some of the center circles on my Dresden plate quilt Thursday. I have put together the 12 blocks called for in the original Darlene Zimmerman pattern that came with the Easy Dresden tool. I showed it a few months ago.
But, I want a queen sized bed quilt. That means I need a total of 30 blocks. So, I have been slowly, but surely getting the additional blocks prepared. I got half a dozen centers hand-appliqued on Thursday. I will continue to work on those today.
I had not planned to cut out the fabric behind the yellow centers, but someone suggested it might be a good idea. Another lady at Sit N Stitch said she had made a Dresden Plate using antique blocks and she cut out the fabric and regretted it. What are your thoughts? Have you made a Dresden? Did you cut out the fabric underneath the center?
