    Dresden Plate

    My grandmother made the Dresden on the right and I made the Dresden on the left. She made half and I made half on the entire quilt. This was passed on to my daughter Sherri. I quilted it.

    The Dresden blocks that My Grandmother made are over 100 years old and were in good condition. I have finished several of her tops and blocks that my Mother and Aunts took from her house when she passed away. I collected them from my cousins and finished them this last year. It was such a pleasure for me to do this, I know she must be looking down and is pleased. Thank all of you for your nice posts. Josie
