My entry for this quilt challenge is a Dresden Plate Wall Quilt.  This is only the second time I've made the dresden plate pattern but when I saw this challenge announced I just knew I could make it work with charm squares.  The quilt measures 18" x 18".

Hanging on my new craft room wall:


                            


On a dark background (you can really see the squares here)

                    


Just to prove I followed the rules, here are pictures of the plate squares, the background squares, the circle squares and the backing and batting:

   

         

My patterns (took awhile to find something just the right size for the circle, yeah for Tupperware!)

Surprisingly so do I!  I wasn't sure even up until yesterday if I was going to finish this quilt for the challenge or just say forget the challenge and put the plate on a solid background.  In the end I'm glad I did go ahead, especially once I hung it on the diagonal on my wall.

I was at a quilt show in the spring with lots of vendors and one was selling bags of 'scraps' so I purchased one.  All these materials, except the orange, were in that bag and I just knew I had to use them together to make something.
