The First 12

I have had next to no sewing time at all lately, so I was really looking forward to the latest Friday Night Sew-In. I didn't get too much accomplished, but I did manage to make a few more Dresden plate blocks for the Scrappy Plate Club quilt-along from Bunny Tales. I had already finished 4 or 5 plates, so I now have 12! (Maybe I accomplished more than I first thought!) I'm planning to make more than the 12 called for in the quilt-along, so I'm well on the way with that. February's step is to make the center sections, so I'm behind with that step... I'm still trying to decide if I want to make the centers scrappy or all one colour - and if I go that route, what colour should I use? Black would make all the colours pop, but the quilt is going to a teen mom, and I'm not sure that I want to go that route. Decisions, decisions!
Now comes the best part - the picture:
This isn't the final layout - just wanted to give you a rough idea of what it could look like!


  1. You got a lot accomplished, and it looks lovely. I have the same number made, and I'm also going to be making mine bigger. I want 20 of the plates. And I also haven't gotten the centers on yet. I'm thinking scrappy solids or tone on tones. So, you have company in being behind, and the decision of what to do for the centers.

  2. They look great! Dresdens are on my bucket list - one of these days... Yours are beautiful!

  3. Wonderful blocks. I love dresdens

  4. That is beautiful! So colourful for a teen mom....she will definitely love it! What a great way to use up scraps.
