I recently quilted a beautiful Dresden Plate quilt for Allison - the Cluck Cluck Sew girl!
Back in July of last year she blogged about it here.
I was thrilled when she asked me to quilt it!
(heels kicking in the air!)
But I have to admit I'm always a little timid when it comes to quilting antique blocks.
I want to "bring them to life", as Allison puts it, and quilt them in a way they were originally suppose to be quilted.
LOVE these vintagel prints!
I went with a simple stipple to recede the solid background.
Then I quilted 1/4" inside each Dresden wedge and swirled the centers.
This one was the only printed center in the entire quilt....love that! (Allison's photo)
Her backing reminded me of the Dresden's - in a modern sort of way.
Allison bound it with a white binding.....perfect!
Here she is - all wrapped up!

Thank you, Allison, for allowing me to quilt this beauty!
