Scrappy Dresden Plate Quilt

Earlier in the year my local quilt guild brought in a teacher to teach Scrappy Dresden Plates...This class was an absolute blast!  It is such an awesome way to utilize scrap fabric in a fun way.  The possibilities are endless.  I used a black background and a lilac backing... Please consider making dresden plates if you want to use up your scraps in a way you didn't think possible!

A close up of one of the dresdens.

I quilted it on my dsm using a vine/leaf pattern throughout the black and then each dresden is quilted in a different manner

 I initially hand bound the back of the binding to the quilt but I just did not feel like it was sturdy enough..so I used the embroidery function on my Grandmothers Huskvarna to re-attach the borders to the back.

I have already washed it, hence; the crinkly look.

Have fun playing with scraps!
