Now I will share with you what I made, mostly in pictures. I made a wall quilt, for my Granddaughter due June 26. When she is born I will stitch the Baby info in the dresden centers, We know her name is Carolina Lee Branski.
Quilt name is Carolina , she is 24.5 x 28 inches, Fabric used for the dresden plates is the umbrella trimmings and the quilt fabric is Arizona by April Rhodes by Art Gallery, its due out in August, I just happen to win a bundle from Jaybirdquilts hop. The colors are luscious, sensuous, and went so well with the warm umbrella trimmings packet I chose. I made a 1 inch dresden plate and created the circle with bleached white Essex linen. Binding in a Gold Bella Solid. I appliqued and blanket stitched it on. This is so far my best FMQ, me, the fabric, thread and design were just in motion. I created as I went.
