pretty dresden...

I have loved this Dresden Plate pattern ever since I saw it......here - 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.
