Dresden Plate Quilt





Well, my namesake quilt was finally finished in May. The Dresden Plate blocks is one of the first blocks I learned to make when I started quilting. It has been 10 years in the making. I belonged to a group called Bee Beautiful in 2010 and when it was my month I chose the Dresden Plate and beautiful Art Gallery fabrics by Patricia Bravo. The group was wonderful and I learned so much each month with all of the different blocks, many which I had never tried before. I am so happy that it is completed. It was quilted by Tammy Spencer.






I had this cute backing which reminded me of Dresden Plates and the binding was bought by my daughter last year as a Mother's Day gift. She knew I was working on a few rainbow quilts and decided to have binding to match. She also got me another one, with reds and darker stripes.








I am so grateful to all the women and my daughter who helped make this quilt a reality.

The fabrics really make the blocks stand out. The quilting is wonderful. It gives the quilt
great movement. Of course, the icing on the cake is the rainbow binding. It's a beautiful quilt, all of the elements work well together.

It's so beautiful! Great job specifying those gorgeous fabrics. Isn't it wonderful to get an older piece finally finished? Congrats!
