A couple of years ago, I bought the book Material Obsession because of the quilt on the cover.
As one of my goals for this year, I wanted to make my own.
Fresh out of the dryer, here is my version of that quilt.
The one thing I chose to do was to make a large whole cloth background. Cutting the back ground fabric into individual squares for each dresden plate and then resewing them back together would mess up the polka dots. I took two yardages of the fabric, carefully lining up the dots and sewed them together. I then laid it out on the floor and pinned each dresden where I wanted it. After the placement was decided, I glued them in place. It was a bit harder to work with it that way, but the end result made it worth it.
I did a lot of echo quilting...Twisting and turning over and over again.
I am so pleased with how it turned out...
Final measurement: 78" x 78".
Do you have a "must make" quilt on your list for this year?
