    Dresen Plate theme

    A man brought this top in. His mother (now passed) pieced this and he wanted it finished for a keepsake. We also provided binding services on this one. This quilt has a poly batting and muslin backing.

    Hope you enjoy the pictures and they give you some ideas.

    Lovely job. So sweet of you to help him with this special quilt. Hope he doesn't mind the pink thread on the back.

    great work, fantastic memory too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    His mother is smiling down from heaven at what you have done with her quilt. You are a gem.

    It is difficult for me to work on something that someone who has passed made and is so treasured by the family. But you have done an amazing job.
