Joining the Quilt Fest!
Hi All, I’ve shown off this quilt before, but I wanted to join in with the Bloggers Quilt Festival that is starting today, so I’m going to put up a new post about this little gem.
My Dresden Plate quilt started off as an experiment. I wanted to stitch along in the Bunny Hill Scrappy Plate happening, but I wasn’t sure I had a good idea for one. So, wanting to just try my hand at making a block or two, I got out my template and a charm pack.
I realized that if I pressed a charm in half I could cut 2 wedges out of each one. So before I knew it I had enough from one charm pack for four pretty plates. Then I put them on some big squares of plain fabric and realized what a great opportunity this was of free motion quilting some pretty wild feathers.
Finally, I’d always wanted to make a scalloped border but had never done it. I managed that too. This quilt grew organically and was a real expression of me playing with my skills and tools and just having fun.
I hope you like it!
