    First Dresdan

    Now I have to decide on background color, not happy with either of these choices.

    May just wait to buy a different one, any suggestions?

    Try grey and aqua.
    I prefer the first :-)

            If I was going to pick one I'd pick the one on the left. If I was going to use different fabric then I'd probably use a dark green...something like a hunter green....but that's just me...

              I think the burgundy is too dark and the other is too light. You need something in between. Your plates are gorgeous!

                I agree. The first one overwhelms your beautiful spring colors and the second one washes them out. I'd look again for the background. But, I love the dresden and the colors you picked!!

                  I would pick one of those gorgeous blues in the plates. Makes me think of a springy blue sky. Nice dresdens!

                    I love them, I like the dark fabric. It makes the dresden plate pop. You did a great job, what size blades did you use? I've been wanting to make them for the holidays for my table, very festive,

                      Love your dresdens. I would try a green or blue.

                        Love the contrast of the dark one. You have to consider with what you will be putting this; ie: does the rest of your room match the pinks or the blues. I personally think the rosy one is beautiful but I love contrast. This is very pretty!

                          It does depend on what you are using for and the colors in the room. I love bold contrast so the burgandy is perfect. Beautiful work on the dredans

                            Wow...those are good! If I had to choose I would pick the burgundy...but I also love bold contrast. Or make it springy with one of the light aquas from your plate colours.

                              I used a "candy bar"(?) a pack of 40 2.5" x 5" pieces Oasis by 3 sisters for Moda it was just something I had stuffed in my bin and a friend gave me the easy dresden ruler she bought doubles of so a bored me just made these.
