Happy Memorial Day!

I originally had twenty-three Dresden plates to complete three quilts. These are the last two completed for the veterans. Of course, I'm making more of different designs. The first quilt included nine Dresden plates seen here.

 Half triangles were used on the left and right side of this quilt.

New Toy

Janome Convertible Free Motion Quilting Foot Set
This beautiful spread was donated and given to and 82 years young lady. After receiving a call to pick it up and complete the binding for her, I decided to try my new toy on it. It's fun practicing on it. I'm not sure if I should finish all of it of save some for her.

I haven't taken time to try free motion quilting a pattern on a smaller scrap as of yet. We'll see what happens.
