My first dresden plate block

The dresden plate block is one of those quilt blocks that I have always admired but never thought I could or would make up. It just looks to hard - all those points. The finished results is gorgeous and I have always thought I would add it to my 'rainy day' craft projects to try out. This month in 'Bee in my bonnet' bee Joanna requested a dresden plate block !!

So with great anticipation and dread I made and finished it today - and it was quite easy !! In fact I want to make a block using the moda 'blush' range I have used on Isabella's quilt and make it into a pillow. So..... what do you think ?

The instructions were super easy to follow. We used this tutorial with only a slight deviation. I think now I am pleasantly suprised at my attempt and would like to have a quilt made using this block !
