I'm Queen Bee for the month of May and I must admit I've had difficulty in choosing a pattern never mind a block. I've been on Pinterest for hours searching for something to spark me off. I've finally found it though, thankfully.
This month ( well May really) I'm asking for the Dresden Plate
Colours to be anything in the Hot range. Reds, oranges, yellows, pinks and purples. The brighter the better. Solids or otherwise. Think of flowers in a hot garden border such as below
As for the plate itself it can be any size up to 15" and any number of blades/petals. The only stipulation is not to attach it to a background. The reason for this is because these are the quilts for my inspiration
I plan on making the plates flowers on my quilt. I'm going to piece a background of light blues and greens to represent the sky and grass and applique them all on there. The size of the quilt will be according to how many and what size dresdens I get.
( I would like to give credit to these quilts and blocks but even chasing the links through Pinterest I'm none the wiser. If anyone knows please yell so I can give credit )
