My Blue Plate Special quilt pattern is
now available and just added to my etsy shop
Of course I used aqua for the plate centers...
bringing me to name it the Blue Plate Special
which is reminiscent of a favorite hometown diner:)
The quilt is 72" square...
each giant dresden is machine appliqued
onto a 36" square background.
Even one giant dresden on a 36" background square
would make an adorable table topper!
They are super easy to make using the Thimble Rulers and 10" squares.
For this quilt I used several 10"squares from each of my fabric lines.
The smaller dresdens are made with 5" squares and the small Thimble Ruler.
When I designed this ruler...
I had a vision of making lots of chubby dresdens
including giant ones...and now
my vision has come true!
Just 9 of them would make a King Size quilt!!!
And the circles for the small dresden centers
are easy peasy with my Circle Rulers:)
Also included in the pattern are 4 "Plate Mats"...
these are really fun to make and I love
the way that they look in my kitchen!
I used 4 fat quarters for the tops...
each placemat has one of the FQ on it...
just in a different area.
I made pockets on the side for utensils:)
And made napkin rings too!
We like to use flour sack dishtowels for napkins at our house...
sometimes we even use vintage ones
that are a little bit worn but still charming:)
These napkin rings look so cute wrapped around them.
And they are also long enough to
wrap around a rolled up placemat for a picnic!
Lastly included in the pattern are
2 Hot "Plates"
You only need 22 - 5" squares and two 10" squares
for the background and you can make two:)
The backs are a 4-patch and I used my Circle Ruler to make them round!
I'm so excited to be releasing another new Bake Sale pattern...
I love this line so much that
I seriously can't stop
making things with it!
The rest of this post shows more pictures of the Quilt...
