Dresden Plate Quilt Block
Got the template from this quilting magazine.
Chose a flower on the fabric to be the top center of petal. Outlined it on the plastic template and lined it up to other flowers on the fabric.
Didn't have enough fabric so I chose this green fabric to alternate petals.
Sewed the top of fabric and made points using the white plastic tool shown on the right of photo.
Sewed the petals, that I ironed, together.
I double checked that the petals were alternating. My plastic template, with flowers drawn, is peeking out from under the fabric to the left.
Ironing it flat helps as I sew them all together.
Once I cut out all my petals my fabric looked like swiss cheese. I made a smaller template and started cutting out petals for a smaller version of the Dresden Plate.
