I'm not the biggest fan of the Dresden plate. I don't dislike it but it isn't a favorite design. However, I really like playing with the Dresden ruler wedge lately.
For this piece I traced the 8" ruler wedge. Shrank the tracing with my printer to 3 different sizes plus a partial wedge.
I fused the pieces to the background and stitched them down with a raw edge applique technique. Easy peasy! The binding is not bias, it's straight grain. I don't like doing bias if I don't have to.
This piece is another make with this fabric collection for a personal challenge. Other pieces can be seen in my flickr photostream here.
Confession: One fabric piece is not part of this fabric collection but I didn't want to keep repeating too many of the prints to make enough wedges so I just added one more print to the collection. Is that cheating? Maybe I can't count it in that challenge.
I've made a couple of table mats for my daughter and she said she'd like to have "some" more. I'll have to send this to her eventually, but right now I just can't part with it. I like it and want to enjoy it for awhile before I package it up and send it off.
Now I can get back to work on my "Man Quilt" that I started back in January. It's ready to quilt...I'm always so excited when a quilt is ready to be quilted. See ya ~
