    Batik Dresden Plate - Made this for my brother

    I just got this back from the Maggie, a member of CAMEO Guild who does professional quilting. The quilting is done all free-hand. This is the second Dresden Plate that I have done. I think this is one of my favorite patterns.

    I still need to do the binding, put on a hanging sleeve, and make a label. Although, I do need to name the quilt. Any suggestions for the name?

    "Beautiful Dresden Plate". That is the name of it. I just love it. So bright and beautiful.

    That is about the most beautiful dresden plate quilt I have seen. The quilting on it is wonderful, too! You both did a great job!

    That reminds me of garden flowers, pinwheels, and wind. It is gorgous. I name in something like Garden Spinners, or Spinning in the Wind. No matter what you call it, it is beautiful. A rose by any other name smells just as sweet.

    "Shades of Dresden" would be appropriate. I love it! I just had a customer ask me for a bright quilt for their log cabin in TN. Boy does this fit the bill!

    Wow - I am breathless (perhaps that could be the name). I love it.

    I think I may be your long lost sister (one can hope).

    If I had made one as pretty as that, they would be having to put me in cement shoes to keep me earthbound. That is just gorgeous and what a different way to set the border (at least to me). I like the centers overlapping the sashing. Wow, wow, wow!
