It is Dresden Plates. Stephanie has been sewing this lovely dresden plate quilt in greens and blues, and there was a giveaway as well, with dresden plate templates.
I have not yet tried that pattern, but last week when I cleaned my vase cabinet above the fridge, I found this:
It is a cracked porcelain plate from early 1900, with a perforated metal frame. I believe it is used under a hot coffeepot. We have a perfectly nice name for this thing in Finnish, pannunalunen, but I can't find a translation for it. :-( You must know what I mean!
Here you must click to enlarge the picture to see the connection to the Dresden plates: My plate is manufactured in Dresden, Germany.
Be sure to visit all the blogs participating this week, the list of links is here!
You are welcome to give me a translation of pannunalunen!
