A month ago I joined the Quilters Day Swap over at Handmade by Heidi. I have been working on my swap item for my partner and am almost done! But I can't show it to you yet, so....
The other thing I worked on today was my dresdens!! Dresden Plates are one of my all-time favorite quilt patterns. I absolutely LOVE making dresden plates!!
Last Saturday, I was getting ready to go to my daughter's gymnastics class and thought maybe some handwork would be more interesting than a book. So I grabbed my Omnigrid tote and away I went.
I finished appliquéing the last of 9 dresden plates that were in my tote. I had fabric picked out for 3 more (obviously to make it a total of 12 blocks), so earlier this week, I cut those out.
A year ago, this is where I was at:
Today, I sewed this one together:
And pressed these:
Hopefully I will be able to finish these soon, and actually work on a layout for the quilt top!
I am hoping to make this into a quilt for my bed.
