These little dresden plate pieces are part of another "small project" that I worked on over the weekend. The finished pieces are going to end up appliqued on a pillow - with a very interesting background behind it.
Each plate piece starts out as the wedge in the upper left. Fold over the wide end and sew across, then open it up, and press it out to form the point. Very quick and easy, especially when you have the right ruler.
More on this later, as the project progresses.
