THis is my latest endeavor. got the dreden plates at an antique shop. The muslin was in bad shape so appliqued them to a new background and went from there.....and voila'. I know it doesn't show but the sashing is actually a small yellow check.

I love it. If your still not sure you can send it to me. I have a spare bed room that it would match perfectly. You did a great job. Thanks for sharing.

You are so quick! I have a pile of rescued plates in rough shape that will someday be a quilt. Is it just the top or did you f***** it already? It looks great.

Those dresden plates were a lucky find for you Sandra. I love how you put it all together. Very soft and peaceful despite all that radiant color. It's really charming! I'm quite sure I could provide a loving home for it....:lol:

That looks gorgeous.

Did you do the stitching around the dresden plates as you appliqued them onto your fabric, or were they already like that when you lucked into them?

Lucking onto them is right! the stitiching is original to the Dresden...so it was quite a trick appliqueing them on and making sure I kept those stitches present....but as I love to do the handwork...it was ok. Thank you all for your compliments...though I really must say the main work is by the unknown :? who began the project.. :D . I hope they would like my layout.

Sandra you've done a great job of rescuing the plates. Applique sure is a hoot :D

And I'm sure they'd appreciate your layout and that somebody is finally putting to good use the work they have done.
