    The Dresden Blues

    Just finished this quilt for my son's wedding, not until February 2013, but I like to stay ahead of the game! His fiance likes dresdens, and she likes blue, so this is what I came up with! Truly hard to believe I made this, if you had told me a couple of years ago that I'd be making something like this, I would have said you were crazy! No pattern, but did get some inspiration from the gallery of dresden quilts, only a couple were set on point! I had no idea what I was doing, the Lord was with me on this one! Thank you Jesus!

    When I saw dresdan and blues, I knew I would like it, but when I saw the exceptional setting, I was just thrilled.

    Beautiful!!! The blues are lovely and calming. I really love how you did the quarter-plates in the V of the diamonds. You're starting your future daughter-in-law into the family in a very loving way. That's so nice!

    It is very beautiful.
    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.
