I made my first Dresden Plate for the IYP swap. My partner had some on her Pinterest and one of her comments on it was that she thought a pillow would be nice for that design. Done and Done! She liked purple, green, and blue, and to start with I was pulling fabric in all of those colors, but then realized I could easily pull together 20 different green prints from my stash without expending too much effort. Not sure if I should be proud or ashamed of that Smiley  

I used the Easy Dresden Ruler to make these, and it was very easy! A nice neutral dark gray for the backing, and I was pretty pleased with how it all came together. I did a ton of quilting on it, more than I usually do. Initially I was going to do more quilting in the gray (outside the Dresden) but I stopped with just one line and decided I liked it that way.

ETA: Here's two close-ups of the quilting that my partner took. I couldn't find mine.

I love this so much!

green is my all time favorite color, and with all those patterns on it, it looks heavenly.

Congratulations on finishing it, the swapper is lucky to have it.

Thanks, everyone! I was out of town this last weekend for crafty girls' time, and I made two dresden Christmas plates that I am going to make into a table runner for my mom. I just want to make one more and would have finished but didn't have the right Christmas fabric with me. They are so fun to do and come together fairly quickly!

I love this, Mare! Even though all of the fabrics are different, they go so well together. I like how you did the quilting too - it adds a nice dimension.

I couldn't believe how quick you whipped up that xmas dresden last weekend. You're a master.
