    Dresden Plate for baby (top)

    Good evening everyone. I have been off work all week and working on this Dresden Plate project non- stop.

    I made a small trial quilt so I would have enough practice to make the baby quilt. Here is the practice project:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...a-t217433.html

    Here is the finished Baby Dresden top:

    Right now it measures 50 x 50". I will trim the outer border down after I quilt it. Being white I wanted to have some extra area for hands to hold it during quilting.

    This quilt is made to the specifications of the mother to be.

    The backing will be blue buffalo plaid and binding in red gingham! Just like she wanted.
    Enjoy

    Love the 30ish fabrics that you used. How cute this quilt is coming out.

    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. The dresden is on my bucket list.

    I love this and I really love how you made the scrappy border with leftover dresden pieces - what a great idea. The mom is going to love this one.

    Now THIS is a cute baby quilt- not too frilly, or girly, or boy...just right for either!
    About those fabrics...are they a mix of your own scrappies, or are they from certain lines? They're really perfect!

    I am in the middle of making an ez dresden too. Thanks for the placement ideas. That border in the middle is great with scraps around it. Nice touch! Great looking quilt.

    This is all scraps. Some are donated from the grandmother . I love that the MTB will recognize fabrics from dresses she wore as a little!

    If I may add this would never have gotten made without the help from the QB:

    Thanks again to Rebbecs_S for her great tutorial.
