Today was the most peaceful day I have had in years! It was wonderful, no drama, no problems, no interruptions, and progress on Dresden Plates. I have also been working on my daily hearts projects.
I am working on finishing the larger Dresden Plates (9 inches) that will complete the Dresden Heaven (well…let’s say 1/2 way there)! I have made 105 of the mini Dresden’s and there are 16 larger Dresden’s. I finished 7 today. I decided to do the larger Dresden plates to match dome of the mini-Dresden’s. I am pleased with how this 1930’s fabric quilt will turn out. All the Dresden’s will be appliquéd on background fabrics.
Here are the 105 Mini-Dresden’s
On May 1 Deb did a SAL for one month – the challenge was to make 1 heart a day!
Here are my 12th heart (upper right hand corner) and all 12 that are completed. My hearts are 3 1/2″ and I made a fabric grid of 6″ squares. This makes it much easier to needle turn applique.
I hope that all have a wonderful Mother’s Day tomorrow. It will be another quiet day tomorrow and I am so looking forward to that! Peace means more time to quilt and relax!
