Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Home Decor
Style Romantic
BKSUTTER on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? 100% cotton fabrics that have been washed, dried, pressed, rotary cut and machine stitched in my smoke free studio.

What are you most proud of? I AM MOST PROUD OF THE WAY THE QUILT TURNED OUT, AND HOW BEAUTIFUL THE COLORS ARE TOGETHER. WHEN YOU START A QUILTING PROJECT, CHOOSING THE FABRICS AND COLORS ARE IMPORTANT, BUT SOMETIMES THE COORDINATION ISNT AS STRIKING AS YOU DREAMT IT WOULD BE. NOT IN THIS CASE, ONCE FINISHED, THIS WAS JUST BREATHTAKING.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? PLAN YOUR DESIGN WELL. DECIDE IF YOU WANT YOUR FINISHED QUILT TO BE ALL 12" DRESDEN PLATES, OR ALL 17" DRESDEN PLATES, OR A 40" DRESDEN CENTER BLOCK SURROUNDED BY THE 17" BLOCKS. THEN MAKE SURE, BEFORE YOU START PUTTING THE QUILT TOP TOGETHER, THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY SURE YOU DONT WANT THE EMBROIDERED SASHINGS. BECAUSE ONCE IT IS PUT TOGETHER, EITHER YOU HAVE A LOT OF RIPPING TO DO TO ADD THEM LATER, OR START ANOTHER QUILT. AND TAKE PICTURES AS YOU GO, FROM START TO FINISH. YOU WILL BE AMAZED.

Stunningly Beautiful!! I love the design and the colors! I saw a picture of this quilt when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I would quilt it in my head as I was recuperating :) Took my mind off things. Love, love it.

ummmm......how did you make the central plate so big? My template only goes up to 7 1/2" blades.
