More “Dresden Plate” Pictures

31 08 2014

Thank you for your encouraging comments on all three vintage projects I completed for my customer John.


I realize the previous post did not show the completed “Dresden Plate” quilts. The reason— I finished the second quilt after dark Friday night, and Saturday morning dawned foggy. And I so wanted to photograph the quilts on my neighbor’s white picket fence on a sunny day. Here they are in late afternoon Saturday sunshine.


They also look gorgeous on my neighbor’s rocking chairs in dappled sunlight!


Can you keep a secret? John’s sisters are getting quilts and matching pillows for Christmas!

Aby, I am glad you posted the whole quilt. I read with great fascination how you tackled the problem and came up with an impressive solution. The quilts are looking great.

Let’s hope John’s sisters don’t follow your blog! 🙂

They’re beautiful! What a treasure his sisters are receiving! THAT’s what quilting is all about.

These are lovely! I have a set of Dresden plates that are hand pieced. I may have to dig all 30 of them out to make a finished quilt (or two)!
