    Ok just add binding and done. One question for you in should I extend the lines from the plates into the bordering sashing? what do you think or should I leave it alone?

    Very nice, very nice. I'm planning my first DP quilt, with "flow blue" or "delft" sort of look. Can't wait to see it moving along. I'm using the "fold the tip inwards" method shown by Eleanor Burns. Hope it turns out anywhere near as pretty as this one you have made.

    I would leave it alone - it frames the plates.

    Nice job! My mom has one of these in progress that I will probably have to finish for her. It's great that you can get it finished up for her.

    Leave it just the way you have it!That is how I did the quilting on G-fan. It really accents the plate. Beautiful quilt!

    I would quilt the border seperately. I like the way the quilt has more personality with the two different types of dresden's. Nice finish!

    There is something about "scrappy on white" that I love. Your DP is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. WOW....great job. Gives me inspiration to try. Never have tackled that pattern. Is it hard?

    Very easy to do I don't like to challenge myself it was out of need to make this quilt much bigger that I made six more dps! I loved hand sewing the edges it made more personal!

    I love it! Been trying to decided whether or not to put a circle in the center of my plates. You just made up my mind. Yours looks great!

    Love it! Leave it alone. If you want quilting in the border, do it seperate.
