Sounds like a lovely idea! The only time I made a dresden plate quilt was with English paper piecing. I sewed the individual parts of the plate together by hand and then hand sewed that to the background fabric. Then the background under the plate was cut away so the paper could be removed.

I'm sure it can also be done by machine though.

Necktie quilt 31 Dec 2014 06:44 #125336

I've been commissioned to make a necktie quilt from some old neckties belonging to someone's father. She wants something resembling a large dresden plate in the center. Because of some of the pictures and writing on some of the neckties, I do not want to trim them down using my dresden plate template. I'll use that for smaller pieces in each corner. But I'm wondering how to fasten the ties that will create the center circle. There are a number of photos when I search google images, but none clear enough to see how they have sewed them to the backing material. Any suggestions?
