    I posted the start of this quilt with the batiks and received an overwhelming amount of compliments. I am now posting the picture with the center done. I am at a stand still currently with the inner board color. I was thinking, dreaming last night about it, a burgundy marble maybe and inch or inch and a half and then put the outer border with the burgundy as the binding. What do you think?

    very nice! they told me the dresden was a beginner block but it gave me fits. I have had so much trouble that I put it away and moved on. I will try again someday. I always ended up with a tiny teeny hole where the middle circle goes . . . sigh

    Unfortunately, I don't have any insights on the boarder, but I love your quilt top and can't WAIT to see it quilted!

    me too-but 1 of my daughters is the same way-the other thinks I am crazy. Burgundy would be great as a border

    Once again I'm surprised at how much I love this quilt. I may have to quit saying I don't like batiks. You are converting me with your great quilt.

    Beautiful Quilt. I think you idea for the border would be great. Those darn quilting dreams are what cause me to ditch one project and start another one.

    I think the burgandy would look nice, but I think the blue would really make it pop!

    don't give up on the dresden plate that you started (for the person who put hers away). Just go on line and watch some youtube on dresden plate construction. I like Missouri quilt company's video.

    Your quilt is coming along beautifully! Can't wait to see the quilting you decide to do....lot's of space to show off! I think any of the colors in your quilt would be wonderful. Whatever you choose makes your quilt that color because it pulls out those colors in the dresdens.
