Dresden Quilt…Projects by YOU

Today I am thrilled to show off an amazing quilt made by Karen.  She lives in the UK and found our tutorials on Youtube, and wanted to show off her creation!

Don’t you just love the placement of the Dresden plates?

This is what Karen had to say about it:

“The quilt is my own, I made it up as I went along.

The quilt measures 71″ x 68″. As I stated before I used 4 charm packs, then added muslin for the background for the Dresden plates to be sewn onto. Each piece measures 21.5″ x 51″ unfinished. I then framed each piece with the rest of the charm squares. Then I added a flange which was a 1″ piece of fabric folded in half and sew round the outer edge before sewing a 6.5″ border (unfinished) on.

I also trapunto each plate by placing an extra piece of wadding underneath. The whole quilt was then handed quilted and a curved edge added to the corners before binding.”

Thanks so much for sharing your quilt with us Karen.  I just love the way it was laid out and put together!!  Beautiful!

Have a wonderful day!  It is Friday after all!  What are your plans for the weekend?  Are you gonna do anything ‘romantic’ for the Holiday on Monday!?

My kids are out of school again today, and I think we will make treats and Valentines to share with our friends.
