I did a little tutorial on how I made my Dresden Plates using the EZ Quilting Easy Dresden Ruler. I found these went together super easy and were like the perfect combination of piecing and appliqué. Here’s how I did it:
I am using 4” strips here, so I just lined up the 4” mark on the ruler and cut away.
Then I finger pressed the blade in half.
Then I stitched it, feeding the folded side in first and backstitching a bit at the fold.
You can chain stitch them for speed.
Here I trimmed the corner of near the fold.
The ruler comes with this handy dandy poker for pushing out your points. Then press.
I stitched my blades together by putting them right sides together and feeding them in from the outer most point toward the center. I also backstitched a little at the beginning.
I did 10 at a time and pressed each seam in the same direction.
Once I had each half sewn together I used glue to baste it to the back ground. Then I appliquéd it down.
Lastly, I sewed a 3” circle in the center. Super fun!
