A Quilt From The Past

Hi Everyone,

No finishes today,  so I am posting a picture of a quilt I made a few years back.   This is a Dresden Plate quilt.  This block is traditionally done by needleturn, but I used Eleanor Burns' method.  She is the lady famous for the "Quilt in A Day" series.  Her directions are to make the plate, then sew it right sides together to iron on interfacing (I used plain muslin), then trim and turn the plate through the hole, then applique it to the block.  I covered each hole with a yoyo.  The center of each yoyo and nine patch has a button attached with floss. The main colours are navy, tan, olive green, and mustard.  There is a heart hand quilted in each corner of the plate blocks.  This quilt was made as a thank you for dear De.   You can click on the photo for a better look, if you like.      debbie
