What materials did you use? jelly roll(s) of Tea Cake by Verna Mosquera (one jelly roll gave me 10 blocks of plates). I may have to buy more of the same or something else and spread the two different fabric collections over the quilt

What are you most proud of? Well so far so good... I still have parts of quilting I've never done before (like piecing the whole top, deciding 'do I sash...put on point.. what the backing will look like, and borders, not to mention quilting!! ) There's still plenty to freak out about, overcome and be proud of. I'll keep you posted!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Not sure yet... but I'm sure I'll do it the hard way and figure out what advice I'd give if I did it all over again :D

So pretty! A whole quilt of Dresden plates - a definite labor of love - I know you will totally be up for finishing this one! You will find exactly the right way 'cause you've got a good eye for color

Thank you Alyx! I'm the lucky one tho... As "Old-Fashioned" as an 85 year old might be... she's incredibly quite a trail blazer in her "can-do" attitude. She was DIY before it was cool! :D
