Then I used my Dresden template and cut one blade from each fabric sewing the longer ends into prairie points. After I did that I began sewing the blades together.
I was happy with how they turned out, but it's clear that I will need to pick out several more fabrics to complete the plate. I haven't decided yet what I am going to do with it, but I am thinking about making a pillow when I finish putting the plate together.
