    Dresden designed by Nancy Zieman

    I posted a thread the other day in the main section about I finally learned to stipple after many attempts and potholders and Paper. The quilt is finished now and it is for my Mother's 100th birthday. It is not until August but I go out of town for the summer. I will be giving her a BD party. I have to make a label for it next. I can quilt my own quilts now instead of by check. Thanks again for all the encourage meant. Oh I noticed something about my stippling and wondered if anyone else noticed this for themselves. I can make the loops better one way than the other. I also noticed my mouth moves funny when i was quilting.Name:  IMG_3040.jpg

    Suzanne, this is just beautiful. I love the fabrics, great colors! What a gift for your mum's 100th birthday. She will love it! And congrats on the quilting...I am still quilting by check but I'm hoping to make the transition soon!

    great job and i am sure your mum will love it
    because of being disabled and a check would not finish a quilt i have been doing free motion for a number of years but it will always seem my first quilt was the best.
    now you can enjoy the great savings in the check book

    Beautiful quilt. She's sure to love it! I also have smoother lines in quilting one way from the other. I don't know about the holding my mouth funny but I do hum amazing grace sometimes when FMQing as it seem to help with the rhythm of my hands. Good job on your stippling. The quilting looks lovely.

    So pretty. Your mother will be thrilled. Wishing her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I love the quilt. Is it a pattern or did you do it yourself? I would love to make one similar for sure.

    luvstoquilt ask if the pattern was mine. Design is Nancy Zieman's however, I made my middle border larger and I added the tumbler border. So do I have to put her name on my label? The quilt in her booklet it call blue and purple Dresden.

    Thanks to everyone for the compliments and I will tell my Mom at her party how many quilters from this board said. Happy Birthday.

    Your quilt is beautiful. Your mother is going to love it. Love your colors. I think we all do some sort of movement with all our body parts when we're concentrating on and project.

    The quilt is stunning. Never saw that big of a Dresden plate before. She is absolutely going to treasure it.
