It is so lovely Jenny - I have so many things at the moment that I just HAVE to make and I will add this one to the list - Good Luck with the big move.

GeeGee said...

Jenny, your Dresden plate is beautiful and I love your appliqued center.
I made 2 Dresden plate quilts years ago before the tool was invented. I did the pointed ends just the way you did and gathered the center around templates cut from a manilla folder. For me, that was much easier since I don't do needle-turn applique.
Your work is exquisite and so inspiring. I enjoy visiting your blog.

Kate/Massachusetts said...
