    Here's the latest and I'm so pleased at the way it's turned out! I class it as a bedspread as there's no wadding in it....it's backed with a brushed cotton sheet. (we use continental quilts so dont really need wadding)
    All the "plates" in this quilt were made from charity shop finds (mens shirts, pillow cases etc) so I'm doing my little bit to help the planet!! lol!
    The brushed cotton sheet for the backing was new and all I'm going to do now is machine around each individual block just to hold it in place.

    Thanks Denise, I think it too me about 2-3 weeks altogether....its the cutting out that seems to take the most time. I usually have a couple of hours in the afternoon on my sewing so it had a good few hours spent on it! This is one that I'm keeping! lol!

    Karen, that's the the nicest thrifty quilt I've seen in a while! If I live long enough I sure would like to do a dresden plate, it's so pretty.

    Beautiful quilt! I always love red, and you did a great job of tying all the colors in together.

    Just beautiful! Did you machine applique'? Looks like lots of hours work. You really did an outstanding job on it! I'd keep it too if I were you.

    This is beautiful and how cool is it that you used thrift shop finds!

    Wadding? Is that like batting?

    What are continental quilts? :oops: :oops:
