Treasures from Scraps

I've been giving myself permission to play with my quilting, and this week I played with a Tiny Dresden Template from Suzn Quilts:

While sorting through little bags of leftover scraps from finished quilts, I found a little pile of leftover bits of Dreamscape fabric and wanted to see what I could make from it.

I pulled out this fun Tiny Dresden Template from Suzn Quilts and my it's winter and my arthritic hands are aching hand-friendly Quilters Select rotary cutter:

I patiently stitched them together by machine and turned them right side out using my Purple Thang:

I put the colors together randomly since I only had little bits of a few colors each:

I only had enough fabric to make four little Dresden Plates.

But I'm sure I'll find something lovely to do with them.  First, I'll hand applique the center circles, then stitch to background fabric.  I'm thinking black?  Any other suggestions?

I have a few ideas for making a quilt with only four 4 1/2" blocks, but I haven't settled on one yet.  I'll be sure to share with you when I make up my mind!

Hi, Debbie. How about using those four Dresden Plate minis in a table topper?
