Dresden Plate #2: Table Runner

Mum will be getting her table runner / topper / lap quilt / whatever, today. She thinks she’s getting a skirt, won’t she be surprised!

My Mother-in-Law’s birthday is coming up in October and I’ve decided to make a Dresden Plate table runner using Moda’s Dogwood Trail. After dinner Monday, I cut the pieces and all are ready for sewing. I see a piece or two that needs to be shuffled…

I’ve started working on a modified hexie (by hand of course) which I’ll add to my hexie array, based on Summerfete’s fussy cut hexie which really caught my eye. I’m beginning with Joel Dewberry’s herringbone in pond, a favorite of many. We’ll see where that goes and how it fits into my ongoing hexie project. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll have enough for a quilt!

I’m not a member of WIP Wednesdays but I still have works in progress besides the ones I’ve already mentioned including my Spin Doctor Seuss baby quilt, disappearing 9 patch using the 1930’s reproduction fabrics and matching cathedral window pillow.

  1. That’s a good idea for a table runner using dresden plate pieces. I may have to borrow that one, imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, you know. 😉 It’s looking good!
