    I suppose "outrangously gorgeous" wouldn't be a good name but it sure describes it.

    Well ... Dresden "Plates" in all different colors reminds me of Fiesta dinnerware. So how about ...

    Fiesta Plates
    Senor Fiesta (I can't do the little squiggle above the n)
    Batik Fiesta
    Cotton Fiesta

    I like Senor Fiesta the best, say's a guy made it.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    At first I thought that the plates were quilted with circles and then at a closer look I saw that the fabrics for the plates are stripes. Your color choices are just beautiful. I love everything about it.

    What a beautiful quilt and quilting. You did a great job on it, adding the applique really adds so much. Agree with you that the dresden is such a cool pattern with so many ways to finish it.

    Beautiful! I wish I could call it "mine!" It looks like raw silk! I've been threatening to do a Dresden Plate for years and I'm inspired constantly when I see ones as beautiful as yours!

    What a beautiful Dresdan Plate. The fabric is great. The quilting really goes with the quilt design.

    Thanks for all the wonderful comments, now my head won't fit through the doors. Please keep them coming, I mean really, don't stop. LOL! I have spent about two hours researching methods of applying a hanging sleave and I'm confused. Some blogs say nine inches and others say eleven to make the tube. What's the best method?

    As soon as I pick my jaw up off the floor, I'll respond... OK... that's better. I, too, vote for "Hello Gorgeous" because if you look "gorgeous" up in the dictionary, this is what you'll see there! Wow! Your brother is one lucky guy. Are you looking for any new siblings? LOL! Great, beautiful job!

    It is a really fine quilt. I love the fabrics and embellishments you used to complete the quilt. I don't have a name that does it credit. What is the intended use of the quilt. That might suggest a name. Hmm Joyful plates?

    Wow is right! It is gorgeous. I don't think I have seen striped batik fabric before.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Outstanding job. It is so beautiful and reminds me of a rainbow. " Dresden Rainbow" would be a nice name.

    Absolutely gorgeous. Did you use a pattern or is this your design?
