    Modern Dresden Plate

    A traditional block using modern fabrics. I guess that makes it a Modern Dresden. I am still not so sure what makes a quilt "modern". I used Darlene Zimmerman's EZ Dresden ruler to make the petals, then quilted the center using a curved arc - reminds me of a Spirograph game when I was a kid. The background and border quilting just followed the pattern of the fabric. I sure like my new table topper.

    ​Super cool! I love your Spirograph quilting. How on earth did you get it so perfectly spaced?

    that is really awesome. I was so glad when you took a picture so we could see it in another way. It would make a wonderful wall hanging.
