Dresden Plate

A client brought me this beautiful quilt in February. She bought the blocks at a yard sale and put them all together.

In the background I did a tiny, all-over swirl pattern. I quilted around each of the dresden plate pieces, and quilted a swirl in the center (to make it look like a flower).

I left the sashing empty, and quilted a vine with loops and leaves and flowers in the border.

I used eggshell colored thread in the blocks, and turquoise colored thread in the border.
