I bought a kit to make a dresden plate pillow a couple of weeks ago at Mad About Patchwork and it called out to me this morning when I did a survey of potential projects to work on today. I used red thread and a machine blanket stitch to sew the dresden plate to the background fabric.
The pieces for the dresden plate were already cut out so this pillow came together quickly. I quilted in the ditch around the red border and around the "plate".
Now, back to the machine--I have a couple more little projects I would like to work on today.
