Oh no! It's a really bad bug!!!

I came across a Dresden Plate Sizzix die. Would you believe it??? I have never seen one and I just stumbled upon it on Ebay. I think I paid $8 plus shipping.

 Well of course now I am using it for not only fabric but cards also! It is a bit smaller that the 5" blades I have been making but it's great for cards and even better to use up your scraps. By using different scraps you get completely different looks. Check out my YouTube video on how to create a Dresden Plate Card.

If you don't have the time, money or space to start card making check out My Etsy Shop for Card Making Kits at a fun and affordable cost. No dies to store or markers to buy- just grab some tape and put them together!

Maybe it's a bug! If so, I hope it stays around for a bit! I am loving the Dresdon Plate block! I decided to hand applique the sunflower one so when it is completely finished I will post a picture. In the meantime I made ANOTHER one! This one I left round and I quilted it. It is a perfect candle mat! This was easy and it took about an hour. You know the best part though.... SCRAPS! If you would like to purchase the pattern you can check out my Etsy shop!

A Dresden Plate can be an intimidating quilt block but if you can get a little bit of courage you can conquer this! I absolutely love this as it is sooooo versatile! You can make the Dresden plate and use it as a candle mat, make three, sew a backing and use it as a table runner, a pillow or a wall hanging. The best part? SCRAP STASH BUSTER!
