    Love your quilt and of course your quilting. I just bought a dresdan ruler and added it to my very long "to do" list.
    I love your use of yo yo's~~

    I like doing dresdens....a great way to use scraps and each one looks better than the last........yes, using a hard plastic template is really the way to go...not trying to "make" one out of cardboard. But, having said that, I now have a GO die cutter and it is the berries to cut those blades out...........

    Your quilt is just delightful to gaze upon!

    Beautiful work as always! I'm curious though. Do you add your 3D elements prior to quilting? Or do you quilt first and then add them? I'm having trouble deciding which to do on a project I have in mind.

    It looks like you've really had fun playing in your scraps and have managed to turn out another work of art. It's beautiful.

    Wow! The yo-yo's really do add dimension. I'm preparing to do a black and white zentangle-type quilt and I think a couple well-placed yo-yo's will enhance the final piece. I also like the dresden plate with a smaller blade and a larger center. Thanks again for the inspiration and for sharing your wonderful work.

    I'm not a real big fan of dresden plate (oops, excuse the pun ) but this one is lovely. Has a textural quality that is neat. Yoyos, top-stitching plates and batting (a little trapunto?) that makes the plate and your great quilting stand out, all add to the interest. . . and those are my kind of colors. Very nice.
