Woo Hoo!! I finally finished my Dresden Plate quilt. It was February’s UFO Challenge Quilt.
The fabric for the plates started out life as a skirt my mom made for me in the early 1990’s. I loved that skirt. But an elastic waistband on a longer skirt and a rolling desk chair just don’t mix well. I rolled over my hem and attempted to stand up one too many times. Putting the fabric into a quilt apparently has not solved this problem. As I was binding the quilt, I rolled over the end of it and got tangled up.
This is the back of the quilt.
I’m working on a pillowcase to go with the quilt. Right now I’m leaning toward a black case with alternating blades and a narrow gold trim.
I hope to get this pillowcase, and perhaps one for the Dragonfly quilt finished before I leave for retreat later this week.
