Quilting Quickly (A Fons and Porter publication) has the cutest Christmas projects in the latest issue. One of them is a Christmas Tree made from Dresden plates. I have started it and am done with the dresden layers. I have also pieced the four patches for the border. I am about to start putting the quilt together. Here are some pictures of what I have done.
I am making the four patches from charm squares.
Here are the 40 dresden pieces with their tops stitched.
A nice pile of four patches
All the dresden pieces stitched, pressed and ready to applique down to the background fabric.
