One of the blocks from the Craftsy BOM class which I vowed I'd revisit is the Dresden plate. I fell hard for this block after making it in the class. Thought I'd make up a new set of scrappy placemats for our dinner table with them.
I've only made a start. I'll be trying some free-motion quilting (FMQ) on them once they're sandwiched. It's been so long since my last FMQ attempt, the information has almost certainly dropped out of my poor little brain. I'm a combination of eager-beaver and petrified-wood about the whole thing. I think it would be wise to practice, practice, practice on a few scraps beforehand eh? Fingers-crossed I don't free-motion quilt any body parts in the meantime, hee hee... Wish me luck!
P.S. If you get a hankering for your very own Dresden plates, HERE's a handy tutorial (including template) at Sew, Mama, Sew!
P.P.S. In other news, I'll be utterly done my hexagon quilt within days if you can believe it! Just finishing up the finicky binding... I've been working on that thing for ten months now... CANNOT wait to hold the finished quilt. So excited!!!
