Got the Dresden Plate template done. I is small enough to get 3 from a 5" square...so you ladies that swapped nickles with me can use your "50-cents worth". I'll put the template in the files along with a tutorial by Monday.
There are twelve segments in this Dresden, and it meets in the center.
You can cover the middle with the plate center (or a button like in the first photo)
The model is stitched with a package of the brights I swapped. It would look good...well better...on black fabric than on white I'm thinking. But, when in a hurry...it is what it is. Hugs!
