    second Mini Dresden ready for quilting.........

    ..........on the next trip to sri lanka in March. I hardly can type as my fingers hurt badly from all those appliqued leafs. The finished size will be 21" x 21"

    This time the dresden plates have a diameter of 2 inches and are still very accurate. The background fabric around the plates is a bit wrinkly as I was not able to get in there with my iron...............I will quilt it out.
    I am very happy about the outcome. All I have to figure out will be the binding. I was thinking of a scalloped border at first but I think this would be too much. How about a white binding??
    Thanks for looking
    Granny

    White binding would be perfect! Love this quilt! You do beautiful work! The 30's are a personal favorite of mine. Reminds me of grandma's aprons and all the good things that came from her kitchen.

    I agree with the white binding. You don't want to detract from the rest of the quilt. That is fabulous! How do you size your pattern--smaller scale on the printer? I love minis and would love to try one of these.

    Oh how beautiful ... and even smaller than it's Big Sister, that I have the honour to have in my care.
    And I thought that mine was small ... this is surely MICRO-mini!!!!

    It's so soft and beautiful ... and when the time comes to put the binding on, you'll know whether white is what you want, or not.

    Congratulations for another incredible work of art, Granny59!!!

    thanks so much QuiltE.........I am sure you realized the time in switzerland!? But whenever I want to go to bed there is a new notification and I am sucking in all the compliments like a dry sponge. :-)

    I do downscale the patterns with the printer and for the wine (my first one btw.) I put this see through paper over the top and started drawing till I liked it.

    Yup ... noted the time, but also know how late I post at times!

    You just soak in all those compliments, Granny59!
    After all, you wouldn't be able to sleep with all your dreams of the quilting process to come.
    Actually, I'm surprised you aren't starting it right now!

    Now go and have a little more wine ... and you'll surely sleep well!

    Good Night!!!

    Hard to even imagine how you make it so small, appliqué is so delicate. So lovely.

    Oh so lovely. And your eloquent quilting will make it even more so. I've been tempted to give this a try--2 inches you say--hmmm. G

    I have never made a regular size Dresden. Can't imagine a mini....is there a good tutorial on how to make a mini? Just curious.

    Your quilt is a work of art. Amazing!

    the colors are nice and vivid. White binding would look really nice.
