Dresden plates ~ Quilting

3.21.2011

Thank you all for your comments. I haven't taken any time away from my sewing room to do any computer time, which means all my blog reading has been neglected as well.  My nose has been to the needle, so to speak.

To answer a question that did pop up, no I am not using Tipsy to quilt this one. I need to do a lot of practice before I will put a quilt top I have made on it. My LQS has some charity quilts that need quilted and the owner told me I could use them for my practice, so I hope to make a good dent in practice time on Tipsy and eventually quilt a quilt top I have made.

Using the walking foot on Miss Juki I decided to do echo quilting on the outside of the plate. On the inside I made a 10 point star/flower. I'm not 100% sold on the flower/star. I'm thinking I should continue the echo quilting to inside the plate, but at wider intervals. Maybe two rounds and then do something in the circle? I have no idea what I am going to do for the sashing yet. The echo quilting takes a long time, so I have time to think about what I want to do.

  3. I love it! Maybe you could do echo quilting on the dresden as well...just keep going 1/4" inside each time around from the original 1/4" seam you did to sew the dresden to the background. I LOVE IT! I got my template, so maybe in the next 100 years, I will try one too!
