    Hello to everyone! I wanted to share some pictures of my Dresden Plate quilt that I taught myself how to do, and recently completed. This was my first attempt at making a Dresden plate and thought you might like to see it. I have a new local LAQ that I have found and she completed the custom quilting for me. I have attached a close up of the quilting so you can see the lovely work that she does! Thank you for taking a peek at my quilt, as this one has truly inspired me to want to quilt more!

    Beautiful job on the quilt. I love the "swirls" that she used for quilting.

    I love it!!! I'm working on one with some of the same fabrics, but I seem to be working in slow motion!

    Colleen,

    It is fantastic. I would love to do a dresden plate one day, when I have had a bit more practice.

    Hugs

    That first picture looks like a professional book cover photo.
    I love how the walls provide a perfect background for your beautiful quilt.
    And I LOVE when a quilt is quilted to death. Lucky you!
