New, new, new!  I love new!  Are you getting bored, or am I tempting you?  I hope I’m tempting you to shop and sew too.

My next new pattern I showed you in a sneak preview yesterday with the introduction of my Mini Dresden Plate template, remember?

So, without further ado, here’s A Pretty Plate:

The pattern includes both sizes shown, 54″x 66″ & 27″x 27″.  It’s a fun & easy pattern that is made more quickly by the use of my Mini Dresden Plate template

Here’s the smaller Pretty Plate hanging in our kitchen.

This quilt was inspired by 10″ layer cake squares, 5″charm squares and a jellyroll.  You can use these as I did (except I used one fabric instead of layer cake squares for the block background) or cut from yardage.

The fabric collection is Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Crossing by Moda.  It’s a couple of years old, but I love the prints and colors.  The block background fabric however is from Minick & Simpson’s Wicasset collection also by Moda. 

For those of you that don’t know me, I LOVE fabric.  I get my love of fabric from my mother! I’m inspired by and addicted to fabric.  I design from this inspiration. That’s how I roll. 

When I find fabric that speaks to me I buy it and then figure out what to do with it.  Anybody out there share this same affliction?  Anyone care to share???

Just two more designs to go!

Until next time,

Susan
