Today is a happy day…. a Work In Progress and a Finish! First my WIP, a Dresden Plate. I can’t tell you how long I have been waiting to try one of these!!!
My fabrics are Birds and Berries by Lauren and Jessi Jung for Moda fabrics. I’ve had these since Christmas and been itching to use ’em. They were a layer cake and I was able to cut four blades or petals from each 10″ square. I’ve got my five plates done and now I am going to design my quilt top. That’s how you do it, right? Make the blocks and then figure how they fit??? Maybe not! I’m a little backwards, but I had a general idea of what I was planning…stay tuned for my progress and I will show you how I got these Dresie’s put together:)
Now for my Finish…Sunbonnet Sue:
This was a fun small quilt to make, a labor of love for a special little cousin of mine:) I wanted to use this quilt to work on some of my FMQ. Getting better, but not quite there to venture out to a super tricky design.
I used a stencil for the feathers in the border….its hard enough just following the lines. The inner border has a cathedral windows sort of design. That was a little more freestyle, as you can probably tell. Practice, practice, practice!
I loved the backing on this one too. When held to the light it shines through like a stained glass window.(no pic sorry) Hope you like it Jaycee!
