pretty dresden...

I have loved this Dresden Plate pattern ever since I saw - from "Diary of a Quilter"! 
It caught my eye and I was thrilled when Julie, from California, sent me hers to be quilted.

It's constructed with a 15 degree angle wedge.....thingy. 

She did a beautiful job with the soft prints and white background.

And then.....she chose a white, soft, cuddle for the backing.
She suggested I quilt some type of swirling pattern on the Dresden's and something different in the background.

I love how it turned out!
Thank you, Julie, for letting me quilt this beauty.

    I love what Julie did and the white's so Winter-y!!!

    1. Thanks, Miss Des....and thank you for the link. LOVE her blog.

  2. I remember seeing the one on Diary of a Quilter. Oh, the quilting really brings this to life! Beautifully done!

  3. Cool - am hoping to make one of these soon and wasn't sure how to quilt it! Love looking at your work...

    1. Thanks, Andrea - I can't wait to see yours, too!
