Dresden Plate Dream Come True

I truly hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday celebration. You know, Thanksgiving isn't really over until all the left overs are gone. In my house, they went pretty fast. My hubby outdid himself this year with the dinner. We take turns cooking and this was his year to shine, shine, shine!! In one word? SCRUMPTIOUS sums it up quite nicely. How was your day?

Now, let's catch up on the sewing front. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to make Dresden Plates. So this is pretty exciting to have FINALLY made one. The best part is that I can use these on my table EVERY day under my plates!! I'll have to set the table one of these days and snap a shot so you can see how it looks all together. I had them finished for Thanskgiving Dinner. I must say it looked FABULOUS.  It's just one of those things that as my Gram would have said, I'm "tickled pink" about.

Very easy to cut and assemble.

Close up of the fabrics. Some are vintage others are random lines from my stash.

These will be for my fall decor. I have really cute snowflake fabric selected for my Winter Dresden's. Oh, and then I will make some more with Spring/Summer fabrics. Check out the pattern, easy to follow tutorial and original desinger, Kim Walus on Moda Bake Shop. Love that site!! I'm planning to make the napkins and table runners. But that will have to wait until after all my Christmas sewing is done. Sew much to do, sew little time. I am also posting this, albeit a bit late for last weeks Friday Finish over at AmyLouWho's awesome site. See button on side bar or click on the links to check out all the great finishes and Thanksgiving recipes from last week.

Hopefully the wick in my candle is long enough to burn at both ends for awhile. :)


  1. I love your dresden plates! Look forward to the christmas colors too!

  2. Kate!! These turned out AWESOME!! I love them because they remind me of the ones my mum used to make. She'd have them laid out all over our living room floor and I think she loved them because they used up all her scrap fabric. :)

  3. Dresden plate charger!!! I love it.

  4. Oh, these did turn out wonderful!!!

  5. Ooooh I love these! I remember seeing them on the Moda Bake Shop site but for some reason I never thought of making a set to go under our plates. I have to add this to my list for the year!!


So tickled that you stopped by to visit my quilting kitchen! I treasure and respond to every comment.
