Dresden plate is the only heirloom quilt in our family chest from my Mom's Grandmother who raised her in Roanoke Va. It's a simple design with wonderful vintage fabric patterns that I have always loved to look at and think about where these little bits of colorful fabric came from. I have been admiring other quilts on the net and Pinterest who use just blue and white fabrics so I decided to get a bunch of blue and white and do my first Dresden plate quilt using just those colors like a real Blue Willow Asian design of blues and white porcelain. I watched a couple tutorials on YouTube and got the basics of how to make the arrow shaped pieces... then assemble them. I got right to work and tonight I am happy to say in the first two days made up 4 plates. Two light and two dark to go on opposite back ground blocks in a checker board pattern.
