Child of God, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, quilter, basket lover, amateur photographer, flower and vegetable gardener …….. some a little of who I am, some a lot of who I am, and all a part of me. When I started quilting several years ago, it sparked a passion in my creative side that I never knew existed. I fell in love with it from the very start. I love everything about it, from choosing the fabrics and designing the quilt until the time I finish the last stitch of the binding and everything in between.

Dresden Plate, Finally!!!!!!!!!

 I made my first ever Dresden plate block and I do not know why I waited so long!!  They look very difficult and I guess I was just was a little apprehensive about tackling it.  This made an 18-inch wall hanging.  I need to play with the size of the blades in order to make a 12-inch block to put in a shadow box.  I see lots and lots of these in my future .... fall quilt, Christmas quilt, 30s ....


  1. Oh this is sooooo cute!!! Love it! I big bright sun flower!!! Always love your projects!


  2. Oh, I didn't even catch the "sunflower" until Doniene mentioned it. Very nice.
    I've never made a Dresden Plate, either. Did you stitch it down by machine? My machines don't have that beautiful blanket stitch. I would have to do it by hand and I never seem to have time for that. Can't wait to see what you come up with for all those other "Plates" you have planned. : )


I love hearing what you think!
