Dresden Plate

Dresden Plate, originally uploaded by rkkilmer.

Behold my new project! I purchased a Dresden ruler a while back. I was going to use it to make some mug rugs. However, as usual, other projects crowded in and the ruler was laid to the side, unopened. But today, as I was perusing my many blogs, I came across a tutorial for a Dresden plate pattern. I never knew they were so simple! At least, the tutorial certainly made it seem that way. So, remembering my new ruler, I dug out some scraps and started cutting. This is what I have so far. I have yet to decide what to do with it. Do I make a large pillow? Or, do I make 3 more and patchwork piece a lap quilt? I think I'll put the first one together and see how it goes.
Post more tomorrow,
