Pink, Pink Makes the Boys Wink!
Posted by Sarah Nolt at 2:09 PM
This king sized, unquilted Dresden Plate quilt top is going to be shipped to an acquaintance in Pennsylvania within the next few days. The plates and center circles are hand appliqued, and the rest is machine stitched. She is having it marked, hand quilted, and bound by the women in one of her local church groups. It's a gift for her daughter, who is also an acquaintance. After many years of making almost exclusively handstitched Cathedral Windows quilts and wallhangings, etc. I enjoyed making this top so much that I'm going to make a listing for custom Dresden Plate tops in http://www.sarahsquiltsncrafts.etsy.com . I have 3 extra patches left that I'm going to make into a tabletopper, hopefully soon. In other news, my almost grown black kitten, Precious, has since yesterday joined the huge ranks of emasculated males. He was groggy on the drive home, and kept falling over after I removed him from the carrier, but he was wired for action! Side effect of anesthesia, I'm assuming. He's fine today.
