I laid out the Dresden Plate quilt this morning. May be named, All By Hand. Or, maybe something better will occur to me in the months it will take me to hand quilt it.
After it was refolded and I was hanging it on the hanger, I thought…I shouldda measured that so I could start the back. Duh!
I have a few wedges left over and I think I’ll use them on the back, maybe around the label or something. And, there are a few that are just too stained or rotted to use. I’m trying to come up with ways to cut the good parts out of the fabric on those and piece them into one additional wedge. Now, that should be plenty of warm finger work for this winter. Plan is to quilt around the circles and around each wedge and then ditch around the squares and cross hatch in the squares. Maybe a little something with leaves or vines for the sashing. Or, maybe leave it blank.
And, here are the fabrics for that baby quilt.
In a pattern similar to this
But, using the green in the background where the Pond Mountain quilt is off-white. And, not nearly so densely quilted.
Okay, that’s enough prattling on for the day.
I’m really worried about what’s going on in the Middle East right now. And, all I can do is watch and pray that all ends well.
Be well. Lane
