I've changed my avatar. I've fallen in love with the Dresden Plate block, so my avatar reflects the new quilt I've started. I am hand-appliqueing the plate onto alternating white and cream-colored paisley fabric. I wasn't able to get 12.5 inch blocks out of the fabric I had, so I made an executive decision to cut them at 12 inches. Worked out just fine.
So far I have 6 done. I'm aiming for 30. I really love this project. Precision cutting, followed by precision sewing, and finally hand sewing in front of the TV. What a great variety.
