What are you most proud of? It won a first prize ribbon in our fall fair.

This was the first Dresden plate quilt I made. I fell in love with the pattern so when I was the Dresden plate in the preview of the class Simply Fresh Quilts, I knew it was one that I would be taking. So I guess you could say this simple quilt gave me the inspiration to try other ways to make and experiment with Dresden plates. The love affair continues.

What a beautiful version! I had never before thought of a Dresden Plate as a sunflower but now that I see it... Of course why didn't I think of it earlier. It is just gorgeous. So glad that you won the ribbon. Congrats!!

Where can I get the pattern for this quilt

06/07/2014 Flag

The pattern is from the book Egg Money Quilts by Eleanor Burns. As with all Eleanor's patterns and books her directions are very clear.
