My First Dresden Plate!

This is my very first attempt at a Dresden plate and I am just loving it! I have been saving all of my scraps from previous projects with no idea what to do with them. After reading and admiring all of the beautiful plates that are being posted in blogland, I just decided to try it. The scraps I used were 2 1/2 inches and the finished projected is exactly 7 inches across .I know its not perfect, but just had to show you my first scrappy plate! Hope you have a great weekend and bundle up. We are in for some cold weather! Its supposed to be in the 30's here in Texas!...LOL..I know many of you experience those temps everyday. But we come from a place that shuts down schools with a snow flurry! You can just imagine how many wrecks we have with bad weather,no one knows how to drive in snow or ice! But this summer we will be melting with temps soaring into the triple digits!

Anytime a Dresden plate lies flat, it is perfect; and yours looks great. Sally

Love your Dresden plate and the fabrics you used are perfect! Someday I will tackle one of these.

We're going to have snow here in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania (no big surprise) but I'm looking forward to being "stuck" in and crafting! :) Love your blog!

Very pretty!

I'm just glad that although the temperatures are into the 30's, at least there is no snow or ice!
