Dresden Plate Quilt

This one measures 60 X 60 inches. It was fun and something new to me. There is hope for a non-quilter!
 
                    The Dresden plates were completed by a mom who passed away and her daughter donated them to the church. Of course, I had to complete the center circles, place them on 14 X 14 inch white squares, and choose matching fabrics. That was a chore since the plate fabrics was at least 1960's or 1970's. Since I found this navy fabric, I went online and ordered what I hope to be more since I still have twelve more plates.Binding is from the quilt backing. I'm thinking of making two quilts/throws with six plates each.

    I made my daughter a Dresden plate quilt.. [Shame on me-- I started it when she was about 9 yrs old, and finished it and gave it to her when she was in her 30's.hahaha]

    1. You remind me of my mother. She was so crafty that it would take her years to finish things like her crochet pineapple table cloth for an oval table. I have it now.
