I started this dresden plate quilt last year. I am still struggling to find time to quilt the border. Once finished, I hope I can display it in the shop. Lesson is available on big project such as this one. You don't need so much fabrics for the dresden plates. One FQ for each colour is sufficient. In my case, I used 4 colours. However, we need to have sufficiently the background fabric to applique the dresden plates, here I have white tone on tone. The size is slightly bigger than a single quilt. I hope I can finish this quilt soon.
