Number 9 has turned into a real chore. There are three full circle Dresden Plates and four partial plates. A total 85 blades. OH MY! These are not my favorite thing to make, and I was never very good at them either. Time to learn.
Great, the first full set is 2.5 inch blades. Take a breath and go for it.
There were a couple of mishaps. But lesson one was to use really small stitches to form the points and join the blades.
Hmmm, this actually worked well I am beginning to feel like I might just manage the next six of these after this one is done.
One down and ONLY six more to go. However, once one is done the ability to accomplish the task becomes so much easier.
The second set I was able to work with 3.5 inch blades. They are a bit larger to work with.
So much faster and the idea of using an old doily and a smaller one for the center that was purchased at a quilt store with several of them in a little bag made such a fun center finish. I am actively working on a couple more with some different center ideas. Stay toned for the second episode on Friday's post.
