Dresden Plate Client Quilt Is Done!

I have been AWOL for a week from Blogland. It takes me a few days to get back into the city lifestyle, so many distractions- reorganization of everything is an irritating necessity, add church Sunday, the fun of watching baby Matthew Monday, company for dinner another night and the rest of the week mostly quilting. I just haven't taken time to blog.
I took the client's Dresden Quilt off the LA just a short time ago.
Here's a close up of the front.

Feathers seemed a good match for it so that's what it got!

It's about 60x80 so about right for a single bed I think. In hindsight I could have added more muslin to the sides or alternately, set the blocks on point as I will do with my own DP blocks- as soon I get caught up with the SITP project, I am 3 weeks behind!


I have yet to make the pillow out of the odd left over block- that comes after the binding is done then they can be mailed off to the owner, she must be anxious by now to have them back. I have had them for some time, but I had to applique the blocks and sew them together and I kept getting involved in other projects.

Lovely job, Ros! As much as I love 1930's fabrics, the back of the quilt showing your wonderful quilting is gorgeous!! How well I understand the comment about 'getting involved in other projects'. LOL :)
