It was so nice to reorganize my sewing room, and to have all of my fabrics stacked together by color. About this time, a friend of mine linked to a Dresden Plate tutorial, and I had an idea. I thought I'd make single-color Dresden Plates using only fabric from my stash, with preference to using up my scraps. I used this ruler to make the wedges. The wedges are 6 inches long, and that makes the block sixteen inches.
I started with red.
And then orange. (Orange is one of my favorites.)
And at some point, I just couldn't stop. I sewed before work, in the evenings, and for a good part of the weekends.
I rounded it of to an even dozen with a combination plate, using the ten colors twice and a neutral as the center circle.
All laid out together they look like this.
And the cats are happy with it.
And I *think* that it's enough for me. I really do love making this block, though. Maybe I'll need to make a second quilt?
