Description


This pattern came from the Spring 2013 Scrap Quilts magazine.  My blocks are 16 inch.  I will have 4 blocks across with 5 rows down.  There is an outside border consisting of vines, leaves and a few flowers.
 
The picture of "part of middle section" was taken in the large doorway and unfortunately light showed through making the background lighter than it really is.  Plus, my phone takes crappy pictures. :-(

The top is finished and a picture taken with my camera this time.  I think I will hand quilt it with verigated threads.  The top finished at 76" X 94".  The black background is from Moda Grunge and is smeared with the gray areas.

I love dresdens cannot wait to see more!

Thanks, True. These fabrics are way out of my comfort zone but I'm really enjoying it.

I know what you mean about Kaffe fabrics but I think they are really looking good in your dresdens. Can't wait to see the vine and flower borders.

Thanks, Terryt1955.

The bright prints against the dark background are striking. Nice!

I love Kaffe and love how you used black fabric. Now that I think about it, I can't believe I've never seen Kaffe fabric on a black background before.

twistedandloose

This is stunning. What a lovely quilt!

Caribousmom

This is drop dead gorgeous!!! I LOVE the Kaffe prints for dresdens. Wow. And against the dark background they are just wonderful. How big is this quilt? - it looks huge!

True

This is stunning...love it! Just an all round gorgeous job:-)

Thanks HawkFan, Caribousmom and True. It is 76" by 94". It really felt good to get the top finished and out of my UFO corner. Of course, I guess, it's now in the " to be quilted" UFO corner!

HawkFan

How are you going to quilt it?

twistedandloose

I think I'm going to do some outlining with larger stitches in verigated threads since the background is black. That's the plan right now.

HawkFan

sounds lovely!

Yes, it was alot of work. I've never machine appliqued something that extensive before and I'm so glad that parts done. Thanks Aizome.
