I made a Dresden Plate just because I wanted to challenge myself by
- sewing a traditional pattern
- experimenting with combinations of prints and colors of fabric
- aiming for alignment and even measurements
- keep myself from going stir crazy during this Texas ice storm
Basically, I followed these instructions with some modifications. Instead of 20 pieces, I designed a pattern for 10 pieces. Rather than applique the finished pattern on a square block, I appliqued a circle on the back so I can use this for a "mug rug".
