Dresden Disregarded....

With all this talk of Dresdens....did you know Corey has started a Dresden?  I remembered I have a Dresden that is definitely a belated W.I.P.  
Now before you think me delinquent in my quilty duties....I just need to finish hand quilting...and this is my second Dresden....I do love them!

To this Dresden I added Prairie Points between plates and border....

I am quilting the blades, pie sections on the center, and all around the outside of the entire plate...

The background fabric is a white with green polka dots and the center is the with white dots...

The back is pieced with log cabins of various sizes....more spots...of course...

There really isn't that much left to do....another project for the stack!!!


  1. Your stitching is always so beautiful! This Dresden is going to be great. Do you have a favorite place to buy Perle cotton? I love all the beautiful colors you use.

  2. LOVE everything about this!!! The hand stitches. the colors and the POLKA DOTS!!!! This would look really nice at the foot of my bed....hehe! Beautiful!

  3. Hi Lori - I am fortunate enough to be able to purchase perle from the shoppe where I work....Sew To Speak in Columbus, Ohio. I have also found perle at embroidery shops or yarn shops. Hope this helps!

  4. This is such a fresh take on the dresden, love the lime green you have used .

  5. Simply beautiful- the colors are so fresh and your stitching is perfect!

  9. Very Nice!I love the praire points.I too have a Dresden flimsy sitting in my stack. Maybe I will get it out this month and stitch it. It's been a while since I've done handwork. Your inspiration will add a little more pazzzaaazz to my quilt. Thank you! Toni
