This is Jennifer Schwartz, Julie and I are switching months! For February, we will be learning the Dresden Plate! Here is some Dresden history of this versatile design.
Now down to business. I have packages for each of you! They each include a 12 1/2" blue base, Dresden template...thanks Jennifer R and Emily S., Some destructions, (yes I know I spelled it wrong...that's what my parents always called them growing up.) and a few zero calorie goodies. (I keep trying to loose weight but it keeps finding me.)
The other treat is a mini pin cushion I picked up at a craft fair and this sweet little old lady makes these using the "plug" from her coffee creamer container. (That stuff is AMAZING in hot chocolate too...but not so zero calorie.)
Your mission, is to use charms or regular fabric in soft yellows and whites and blue if you feel the need. The plate calls for 20 wedges total and you can repeat fabrics as much or little as you desire. Have fun!
OK, now for some online destructions. Use 4" strips or cut 1" off of a charm and you can get two wedges in each charm square. Now play around arranging your 20 darlings any way you choose.
Just finished putting my 20 wedges together with the help of my 4 y/o!
