Back of Plates

Here is a back view of my plates. Danetta wanted to see how they should look like.

Normally, I do not cut away the fabric behind my appliqué. This time is the exception.

The seams are pressed open and they will be easier to hand quilt.

Please visit my friend’s blog to see what she has been doing. Debra does such
lovely applique work and One Block Wonder quilts.
Have a great day!

I can't believe how neat your back side is (of the quilt I mean, Lol)! Mine is always such a mess of threads and seams ironed the wrong way.

Teresa said...

Gosh, they look as pretty on the back! This is going to be a sensational quilt.

I always cut away because I use the freezer paper underneath. Somehow my backs never look quite as nice as yours does!!!!

I am in awe. So far as I can see I could look at the back of your quilts just as long as I could looking at the front. I loved the flowers from the earlier posts too.

Rose Marie if that is the back my goodness what does the front look like...you are so very neat...awesome work....

Brenda said...

Awesome! You are truly a magnificent quilter. I can only hope my Dresden looks a tad bit as nice. Thanks for the link to the other sites! Have a great day!

I agree with the previous commenters the backside looks so neat and pretty!

It's such a pretty block and will make a pretty quilt. Your work is excellent. As the others have written, the back is as neat as the front.

I like to cut away the backing if I am hand quilting, but if it is going to be machine quilted I usually don't. Your blocks look great!

It is so well done, you are a master.

It's wonderfully delicious!

Danetta said...

This is just wonderful! I wondered if you cut away the back, that's why I wanted to see it. I can't wait to see this all put together. You do such beautiful work!
Sorry it has taken me so long to see this, I just got back home and to a computer to play on today.
Thank you for showing us both sides.

The workmanship on Your Dresden plate is wonderful. I've never done that pattern before, but I love how they look. I hope you post more pictures as your quilt progresses!
