What are you most proud of? That my daughter is naming her last child after my late mother in law. She was a full blood German.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you line up the tips of the point of the dresden piece and the side, not the bottom of each one. Then when it is a full wheel, dont wory if you have to iron a crease in the center of some of the plates to lay it flat, It will be covered by the center circle.

The spots in the quilt are the oil stains that I removed with a tide remover stick. now to wash it. I guess the moral to this is do not clean and oil the machine until AFTER you finish with a white quilt. It was making squeeking noises.

Yet another gorgeous quilt! Thank you for your tip about the gathers in the blades - I started a Dresden Plate quilt, but found that the hole in the middle was too big to be covered by the disc in severak cases, which involved a lot of unpicking! This has rather put me off and my quilt is currently yet another UFO! I shall now get it out and try again, inspired by you! Love your FMQ! Excellent!
