Two new things accomplished today!

    Beautiful work!

  33. 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.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
