I know it’s been a while since I posted a tip for Hot Tip Tuesday and today is no different! Sorry? No, not really. I’ve been consumed with “other stuff” these past weeks and now that my post-market business is FINALLY caught up, my son’s graduation and party have passed and I have no immediate obligations to tend to except the usual day-to-day family & business stuff, well, I decided to start a new project!
Over the weekend I had a bit of time before needing to go to a graduation party.
I started cutting…
I cut 4 strips and layered them up.
With my new template you can cut 8 petals lickity split!
Cut just 3 stacks & you’ll have enough petals for 2 plates (24).
After cutting, I started to sew…
Just sew, trim, turn, press, sew a bit more…
and before you know it you’ve got some pretty Dresden plates!
This can be addicting!
At this point they remind me of lovely flowers. I don’t know where this is going, so I’ll just keep sewing…
Until next time,

I love dresden plates and have made them with a similar template, but the whole comes out MUCH bigger. Who makes the template you used?
I designed my template myself! It fits a 9″ finished block. You can find the template for sale on my website for $10. Suznquilts.com.
