Hi from Ten Gables Cottage,
After 8 monthe of working on this Dresden Plate quilt at night while I watched an hour or two of T.V, I finally finished it and it will be sold in the Peace Lutheran Church bazaar tomorrow! What a job it is to make a whole queen size quilt by hand! I have new respect for my grandmother and mother who made many, many quilts in their life times. This a a pattern they never made, however. I wonder why. It is a very popular pattern and an old one.
I just spread it out on the bed so you could see it---didn't tuck it under the pillows or anything. I turned back a corner so you could see the label I made for it. I have enough Dresden Plate blocks to made another one, and will do so for my family, but must wait a bit and get "over this" first!!
All you quilters, give me some feedback!
