Plates, anyone?

My Dresden Plates top is done and my quilt is sandwiched. Yippee!

This is my biggest quilt that I’ve made so far: 102-1/2” x 102-3/4” and is quite cumbersome to handle.

So, the next step will be somewhat time-consuming. There will be some machine quilting as well as hand quilting. It will be a while before you see this quilt again.

Next post will be a sneak peek of my round robin project.

Have a great day!

Oh come on Rose Marieeee, you're making us all look bad next to you with all of those quilts being done so beautifully and sew fast! LOL, you do inspire me to get on with it and finish something up again. :) The first hand quilted quilt that I slept under was a Dresden Plate...such a fond memory.
