    me to...my question is if I get it long armed does it take away from the plates or do they not use a pattern on the plates.

    It's beautiful...perfect colors for a vintage Dresden. I have a small one I'm ready to quilt but can't decide how to do it, so you gave me some good ideas. My FMQ isn't ready for prime time yet!

    LOL - Anita, my FMQ isn't even ready for late night infomercials! I can do little things but I just can't get the hang of moving a big quilt smoothly. I just told myself if it were the 1930's no one would've been doing FMQ on this quilt, so I kept it simple. Not so simple as to hand quilt it though. I'm too lazy for that!

    Now that's what I call a dresdan plate. It reminds me of all the older colors and prints that Grandma actually used. So many today are the bright non-era colors.

    Beautiful! I'm working on one now but all of my "plates" match. I really like the way you did yours, much more appealing to the eye.

    Very nice, you did a great job quilting it. If it's to be an old fashion quilt it should be hand quilted. Sometimes simple is better.

    That's lovely. I can't wait to get back to mine. I'm only making a baby quilt because I wanted to see how I liked doing them and absolutely loved it. I think I have enough repro prints to do a larger one...maybe in the near future. Thanks for sharing.
