Scrappy Dresden Plate Tutorial

Sorry this post is a little late today. Had a little hiccup! ;o)

Our 2nd Featured Blogger in Week #2 of the Sew Scraps Along is Lurline from Lurline's Place!
Lurline is another blogger that I've been following along with for a few years now.

I can always find happy inspiration at
Lurline's Place!

When searching for Scrappy Tutorials to share with you... I knew I wanted to do a Dresden Plate block.


Lurline's Dresden Plate Tutorial was perfect for this week's tutorial!

Here is Lurline's Dresden...
Isn't it scrumptious!

One of my most favorite Dresden quilts is this one...

Sewn and Quilted by me in 2009

I enjoyed every bit of the process making this quilt.

So I was very anxious to try Lurline's more scrappy style dresden's.

I'm almost finished with my Scrappy Dresden! Here's a little peak...




I am hooked!

My next Dresden quilt will be done in this scrappy style...

It was so much fun to sew!


Thanks Lurline for sharing your Scraptacular Tutorial!

I had found Lurline's tutorial ages ago and loved it, but I forgot about it so thank you for reminding me.

It is lovely, and the Dresden Plate looks easier than I imagined it would be. I do have a question though... I am wondering if I am missing something.... Is the Dresden plate then appliqued to the quilt top? I have reread the directions twice, and I don't see where the background fabric comes into play. thanks!

I remember this post on her blog - just love the scrappy dresden - I got the small template - maybe a little bag is in order to get started.
