So it's clear I'm not all that reformed. Corey started one of these, and I realized that I had some of that red polka dot. So it had to be done.
I have almost all the blades cut and sewn for 20 Dresden Plates. I'm not sure what to put in the center, but it will be a larger circle than the hole that is currently there. In the interest of actually finishing this one, I will be machine appliqueing. I know how I am with applique by hand. I love it, but I'm not that diligent. I have enough handwork projects right now anyway.
