Dresden Plates

Dresden Plates, originally uploaded by quiltingmick / michelle.

Done in a class today with Cathy Stevenson, all made from the same fabric. Still 2 more plates to be made ... and then I will do something with them which *may* involve a wall hanging. Or maybe I'll make some more and make something bigger. They are rather addictive!

Here's the fabric I used:

Breaking all the rules

Just the top so far. Originally a UFO, I decided on Friday night that I needed a single bed sized quilt for my weekend away at Cobargo (next weekend). Most of these blocks were already sewn 18 months ago, and were planned for a queen sized quilt which never eventuated. The fabric is mostly Jane Sassaman and Valori Well designed, and I won all the centre squares at one of the Canberra Quilters evening meeting raffles.

Anyway, I broke every single rule when making this top - and I doubt there is a 1/4 seam anywhere in the quilt. And it lies flat!! Look at that, quilt police! Of course the best bit is that I thoroughly enjoyed making! And that's all the quilt police should care about (because it's certainly all I cared about).

I am slowly free motion quilting this, and hope to start the binding tomorrow.
