    This is a gift for my dental hygenist. She was commenting how she loves this block, but is too scared to try it. So, naturally the nurturing quilter in me just had to whip this up and give it to her as inspiration.

    Very pretty and old fashioned looking. How nice of you to give her this wall hanging. I guess the gift of giving is natural for a quilter!!

    I just noticed that it is a little bumbpy looking - I assure you that it isn't. She likes the 30's fabrics, this is as close as I could come.

    That is so pretty!! What a nice encouragement :-D. Here is a video tutorial, that you could show her, from Missouri Quilting Co. that shows how easy it can be:

    I made a pillow with a Dresden Plate on the front of it and it's really a nice way to make a wall hanging, pillow, etc.
