"Dresden plates have been around for centuries, but I have recently found myself drawn to their beauty. In this tutorial, you'll find step-by-step instructions and images teaching everything you'd need to know about sewing Dresden plates. I tried a few methods and narrowed it down to what I think worked best. Dresden plates are a wonderful and beautiful way to use up so many fabric scraps that have accumulated over the years. Almost any medium of fabric can be used and combined to create your Dresden plate."
