Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Love the Dresden Plate pattern but so far have never been brave enough to make a quilt. Yours is going to be beautiful.
Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.
I love it in purple too! I made a dresden plate while in Junior High--about 45 years ago. Oh horrors! Can I possibly be that old this soon? Any way, it was a copy of my grandmother's quilt. I asked my dad the name of the pattern and it was known (by him at least) as a single wedding ring! It was years before I knew the real name.
Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too can become great. Mark Twain
Your Dresden block is very pretty. I haven't tried the Dresden pattern yet. Maybe this winter I can sit by the fire and do some handwork. Thanks for the inspiration.
I'm looking forward to seeing your finished quilt. I haven't tackled the dresden plate yet but it's on my to do list.
