    A true classic! How are you going to quit it? I'd want to cables or feathers on the white border.

    Most likely will do cable in the blank spot. Think I will outline plates, and put a little something in the blank pieces in between

    Beautiful, Lots of hard work. I know a labor of love. I love Dresdens too. I'm in the process of making one. Not nearly as big as yours. How did you attache your plates? And my plates are larger.

    A dresden plate quilt is a great way to use up all those little pieces that you HATE to part with!!! I have a TON of those!!

    I have decided Friday night I am going to re-organize some of my sewing stuff, my stash (that has been pulled and pulled and is about to meet me in a heap the next time I open the cabinet doors), my quilt class files, patterns, scraps, etc. Its in desperate need of tidying now!!! I also feel after reading and admiring such talented people here and their work, I have to add some new projects to my already growing list!!! So my project book is in need of some serious updating!!

    Awesome quilt Patience of a Saint and Job too!!Can't imagine doing DP in 6 inch blocks but then I never imagined actually doing a whole quilt!! Looking forward to seeing it quilted and I guess it will be hand quilted.

    All you hand quilters blow me away!!
