Dresdens in Red


I only managed to use my red scraps in four Dresden Plates this week for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. 

My rules: make four each month. 
1. all in color of month
2. color of the month plus it's color complement
3. color of month plus white on black
4. color of month plus black on white
applique to a gray background
centers should be polka dots surrounded by gray rick rack. 

I have more red scraps left and may get some of them used this week before the next color change. Or I may not. Stay tuned.

Love, love, love the Dresden plates. So nice to have a plan for how many and what colour combination. Should be a dramatic quilt when done.

Your 4 RED Plates look really good on their gray backgrounds! Keep churning them out each month because I'm looking forward to seeing how they get set together.

They all look great! I love the dotted fabrics in the centers. Now I'm wondering if I missed that all of the previous Dresdens had dotted centers?
