Chookyblue and I decided to make some Dresden plates, using the Dresden ruler (which I just had to have, and have not used since Chooky gave me a demo over 12 months ago) on the weekend, this is what we came up with….Chooky has used Moda Madeira and I have used a fabric called Jitterbug – Cosmo Cricket..loved making these….now I have to hand stitch the plates to the background……

take care Peg….:>)

  3. Could you please show the gadget you were using as I have never heard of it before. Lovely shapes and colours you have chosen here. Would look stunning in blue and white which is one of my fav colour combos.
