Well, as I am relatively new to the whole blog thing - this will be my first entry to the Quilt Festival! So I hope to complete this task as prescribed by Amy of Amy's Creative Side....I love the idea of sharing a special quilt in one place...so here goes.
This cheery dresden plate was inspired by Sarah Fielke and her first Material Obsession book. I loved making this quilt because it combines a traditional quilt block with very modern elements of color and design.
I prefer using bright colors in my quilts and with this quilt I was able to use these fabrics to my heart's content. The blades were machine pieced and the entire plate was hand appliqued to the background fabric. The extra large center was also hand appliqued.
While I have hand quilted for years...this was my first experience with using perle cotton. And I found my new obsession!
I absolutely love this quilt and I am so glad I took the time to make it...thank you, Amy, for giving me the opportunity to share it with all of you!
