This Dresden Plate quilt top has been a special treat to work on.
It was beautifully hand-pieced by my great-great grandmother, sometime before I was born. My mom inherited the quilt top many years ago, and, more recently, she asked if I would be able to quilt it.
I'm loving the chance to work on a project that's been a work-in-progress for so many decades.
I love this gorgeous vintage quilt top, and hope that my quilting will do it justice.
In other news, Hopscotch Butterscotch has some great progress to show: all the blocks & sashings are put together! The borders are prepped! The quilt top is nearly done!
Because I already had lots & lots of 2 ½" pieces cut, but the pattern calls for 2" cut ... I decided to go with the bigger pieces, and just make a bigger quilt.
I'm really glad that Jo's Country Junction is hosting a UFO Challenge ... it's been a great motivator to get progress -- any progress -- happening. I'm linking this post to this week's UFO Challenge.
Check back in a couple days to see my finished Happily Scrappily Irish little quilt.
