Dresden Quilt Progress

In Quilts on March 22, 2013 at 6:00 am

The Dresden plates are being appliqued to the awesome wheel fabric I found at my local quilt shop. Have I mentioned how much I love Generations Quilt Shop lately? Their fabric selection is unbelievable. Seriously, if you live in the Pottstown area, you have to visit.

I’m not sure if you can see in that photo, but I am hand basting the plates down, since they are so huge and I did not want to leave a million pins in the plates during the assembly of the quilt top.

In addition to the wheel fabric, I bought fabric for the sashing and for the backing.

The polka dot fabric will be used for the sashing and perhaps the binding. The circle fabric will be used for the backing and maybe the border. I haven’t decided yet.

  1. So glad to see your progress. These Dresden plate quilts are so beautiful in their variety.

    • Thank you. I wish I could claim the craftsmanship, but I purchased the Dresden plates. The only thing I changed on them was the inner circle piece. It occurs to me now that I should have used a vehicle-themed fabric for the inner circle rather than an old man fishing, but what’s done is done. Besides it was a vast improvement over the boring light blue fabric.
