    My First Quilt - Dresden Plate

    I've been wanting to quilt for awhile, and finally took the time to try it. Now I'm hooked! This was made for my Granddaughter, I learned a lot as I went and what I will do differently next time. I'm now working on quilt for her brother!

    WOW! It does not look like your first quilt....looks GREAT! Wish I could have done such a nice job on my first quilt. Love your color choices!

    Your quilt is beautiful and your granddaughter will love it! Dresden seems kind of hard for starting out with but you did a great job!

    1st quilt?!?! Amazing! Your color choices are terrific. What a great idea doing the nine patch for setting squares. Beautiful. She will LOVE this.

    It's really beautiful! Love the 9 patch corners. They make the quilt 'sparkle'!
