    Dresden Plate center design.....

    I just made up this design using the center Dresden Plate block and 1930's reproduction fabrics. Gave it to this young lady for her wedding gift.....she, too, had a horrible car accident that almost cost her life and had to delay her wedding for a year. She loved it! She loves "vintage" things, so I tried to adapt this to her liking.

    Lovely quilt and a happy ending, I love it! The 1930 repro fabrics with the white are sew pretty. I love the lattice effect surrounding the Dresden Plate.

    I'm so glad she has fully recovered. The quilt is beautiful. Love the dresden plate in the center. Love 30's fabrics.

    That's a beauty!!! Looks like a lattice in front of a garden and only one big flower is showing all the way. Very well done.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    It's a beautiful, cheerful quilt. I love those colors. I like happy colors. If that is the young lady, she is very pretty.

    What a happy quilt. I almost imagine looking thru the lattice into a huge lush flower garden. Beautiful job.
