Averia and I did a swap in the latest IYP round and we agreed to swap a hoop.  She asked if I would make her a hoop featuring the Dresden Plate pattern.  I'd never made one before but after some looking on the internet, I figured I could handle it.  While I was searching, I saw a pattern that had a small plate over a large plate and I just knew I had to challenge myself to do that.  Then I decided that a circle centre was too plain so I thought a yo-yo would complete it just perfectly.


The entire hoop (it's a 10" hoop)

                     


The little plate in progress
             


and finished
     
             


The yo-yo

         


The quilting

         


I love how it turned out and will probably make one for myself too.
