I have another pattern that uses my new Mini Dresden Plate Template.  This one is a Christmas pattern, go figure, huh? 

It’s called Bits of Dresden Christmas Stocking:

Do you get the title now?  I used bits & pieces of a Dresden plate and appliqued them onto the stocking.  This was so fun to create!  I had the idea in my head as I was working on other designs for my booth at market and finally, by the time I was ready to work on it, all the pieces came together so to speak.  No pun intended, really!

It’s a generous sized stocking, so you can fill it with LOTS of goodies.  My kids would tell you there is no reason to make a small Christmas stocking and I would have to agree with them.  It is quilted so it is nice and sturdy too.  A great usable gift for years to come for sure!

The pattern includes a paper template for the Dresden petals, but as I explained in an earlier post, the Plexiglass template allows you to cut multiple layers quickly and more accurately.  You can purchase the pattern & template at your local quilt shop, or if they’re not carrying them yet, you can purchase them here.

One more pattern to go!

Until next time,

Susan
