I'm not a very good planner when it comes to quilts. I usually just make something and then add borders until it's the size I want. But because this Dresden plate quilt is going to be big, I wanted to get an idea of how much fabric I'd need.
Most of the time Dresden plate quilts have the circles laid out in a grid shape. But I wanted mine to look like bubbles or flowers or something drifting across the quilt. So this is roughly how it's going to be laid out. The circles are to scale...the scale is one square = 5.5".
