Dresden Plates

Nadine over at Material Girls has gotten me on a Dresden plate making kick. 

I'm no perfectionist by any means, but I'm trying really hard to perfect these plates.  I've made 2 1/2 now.  Still trying to get them just right.

This was my first attempt.  I think it turned out pretty good.  The circle isn't the perfect circle and I've got to work on attaching everything, but for my first try I was happy.

My second attempt.  My sister and I decided to whip this up for her mother-in-law.  I found when quilting all the way around the Dresden, it no longer lays flat.  But I still love how it turned out.  Again, I need to work on making the circles, well more circular.

I've decided anything made out of Verna turns out cute!  Love this line.
