Using Old Neck Ties To Make The Dresden Plate Is Such A Great Idea!

This tutorial is a great way to make a classic block with recycled material!

We recently featured one of our user-submitted quilts that involved old neckties used for a dresden plate, and the response was so incredible that we just had to find a tutorial on the subject (the best part about that user-submitted quilt was, the neckties belonged to her grandfather…what a great way to incorporate such meaning into your quilting!). The following tutorial from Rose Smith features her method to preparing silk ties to be used in a dresden plate, and how to make the dresden plate itself. Check it out, give it a try, and be sure to send us your photos!
