Dresden Plates & Wedges ....

I've been preparing the next block challenge for my local quilting group and decided on a Dresden
plate design.  I  pulled out a wedge ruler that I had stashed away and set out to make up the block ..... I was thinking I was making an 8 ins block but it turned out I was making an 8 ins wedge and hence a 16 ins plate!!!

Anyway, I got the size right the second time around .....

There are so many options when it comes Dresden plates and wedges...for the challenge I  decided on pointed finish to the wedges .... so easy!!!  and a square centre, which gives it a freshness.

  1. Love the centre - gives it a totally different look. Great idea.
