    Wish the pictures were brighter, this looks like a beauty. My favorite color and one of my favorite patterns, in fact I made an orange Dresden plate about two years ago after years of collecting orange fabrics, going back to the days when they were almost impossible to find. How big is your quilt?

    Your quilt is really pretty and I don't usually like Dresden plates. Nice job.

    I think you quilt is quite stunning. I would love to learn how you embroidered in the center. Please add an explanation or how-to for us folks who are learning all this fine stuff.

    I would never have the courage to tackle something that difficult. The quilt is beautiful and the colors are perfect for it.

    Well I am just learning alot myself...But for the centers i used an imbroidery machine that my dad gave me, the hardest part was to get it in the center of the hoop, well that was ok with the manual jog button, I use 4 different patterns for the centers. I never FMQed before so I just tested my machine on a small sample and just moved the fabric all over mostly little circles.

    Lovely! I would love to try a dresden, but the amount of hand sewing required is a little frightening for me...

    Extraordinary work or art! I love the colors you put together and the embroidery makes it looks like Mosaic tile!

    It is really pretty. My husband graduated HS in 1964 and I graduated college in 1964 so that year is special to us.

    Very pretty!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
