    Thanks to the inspiration of all you 'wonderful quilters' l decided to try a few new things. This was my first Dresdan plate ~ it wasn't as time consuming as l thought it would be. :D

    l've always *loved* the scallop borders, so, after seeing all the *great* creations on here, decided it was time to try my hand at that, too. So here's the result of my weekend of 'learning'. :D

    I just used the easy dresden 8in ruler with an 8in fabric strip ... it made a 20 *petal* flower and then machine appliqued it to a 26in sq .. lt made the flower about 19in .. with a 4in center. l'd go measure it, but l gave it to my DD for mom's day ... :D

    Anyway, give it a try .. it was fun. l'm already thinking about another one :D

    Good for you! You took a leap and tried two new (to you) methods of quilting. And you made a sunny pretty little quilt.
