Loving the Dresden

I was very intrigued when I came across the Dresden Quilting Challenge, sponsored by the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild. I am a fairly new quilter and I quilt weekly with a group, our instructor chooses our projects so that we can learn different aspects of quilting. I thought, “I can do this challenge, no problem, how hard can it be…..”

Well, designing a quilt on your own is quite a learning experience, and I am so glad I took on this project. It was hard, but I loved working with the pattern and my fabric. I hand quilted each blade and then hand quilted around the outside edge. I learned a lot participating in this challenge. I will be very glad to rejoin my quilting group when we start up this fall, but I will continue to look for challenges such as this one to expand my skills.

My quilt is 19 inches square.

    I like the stitching on the Dreseden plate and how it shows up on the back.
