Dresden Plates in Hoops

Hi all

I hope you have all had a wonderful week.

I spent half the day Monday finishing another Dresden Plate, this time the plate has curves.  In the class I did on how to make Dresden Plates we learnt how to make the template from scratch so I am pleased that the template was right and the plate came together easily.  I really love it and have decided to sew both plates on to fabric and place in an embroidery hoop.

I used a paper pieced hexagon from the same fabric as the backing to cover the hole in the centre.

I have 2 different size hoops so the Dresden Plates will fit snugly within them.  These are going to hang in the sewing room once they are finished.  I can't wait to add some colour to the walls.

I am linking to WIP Wednesday.
