    Default Patriotic dresden

    I stole some inspiration (by stealing her idea) from Suzi, and did a patriotic dreseden, and made it a hot pad. It turned out to be a 14 inch wide hot pad, but it looks pretty cute and everyone wants one now. :-) It was a little difficult to stitch around it, I have some mistakes there, but I guess that just shows it's homemade, right? Sorry, my pics are always sideways.

    Very unique and clever!!
    I haven't gotten the nerve to try a dresden plate yet! LOL . . .
    It's so pretty I wouldn't want to use it!

    Dresden quilts are not my favorite, but I LOVE THIS! Did you use Insulbrite to pad and insulate it? I might consider making a Dresden hot pad, love the patriotic colors!

    Nice change on the Dresden.....making it patriotic! Is the middle piece embroidered, hand or machine? ....or preprinted panel? Cute!

    the center button is fabric, I just fussy cut the part I wanted to showcase. And, yes, I used Insulbright, 2 layers. One layer of insulbright, the backing fabric, and then I stitched in the ditch to tack down the dresden. Then applied the button and top stitched the blades. I cheated and tucked the blades forward to get to the next row to stitch in the ditch down, so it's stuck and ain't going nowhere! Then I just popped the back and another layer of insulbright on, sewed the seaming, flipped it right side out and top stitched with a fancy stitch. That was prolly the most stressful part of it, because it was so think and just would not move smoothly thru the machine. I stole the patriotic idea from Suzi, she's so creative. I originally thought about just using the dresden, and have the pot holder be pointy, maybe for my next one :-)
