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.

  3. This is lovely. I have some Dresden plate blocks that I found at an antique store. I love how you added the solid square blocks and triangles to the side of the quilt. Gives me a great idea of how to do se the blocks I have and finish the quilt.
