What materials did you use? I collected materials for this one. I used the chart below from the course materials from the craftsy course "Machine quilting negative spaces." #1 fabric - I bought some batik from Tanels a long time ago to make something else. I used something different for that project. I added it to my special stash. Until this project, it got juried into the mix. I used it for the blades on two of the dresden's. I used it for the centers of three of the dresdens. I used it for 4 of the moons on the quilt. I used it for one of the planets on the quilt. #2 Fabric - Was a flat sheet I bought from Aquilla's and Pracilla's thrift store. I used it for the background of the quilt top. #3 Fabric - A gold cotton - I received in a great carload of anonymous givers in 2012, my friends from Lethbridge. I used it for the blades on two of the dresden's. #4 Fabric - burgundy rose Print. I found at the Value Village in Lethbridge. I used it for the blades on four of the dresden's. I used it on the handles and lid of the Rose Society Christmas dinner - casserole carrier. #5 Fabric - A fruit print in the chosen colors. Was donated by the Untited Church ladies . I used it for the centers of two of the dresdens. I used it for 4 of the moons on the quilt. I used it for one of the planets on the quilt. #6 Fabric - A burgundy plain cotton. I bought at Boytincs before they sold out. I used it on Amelia Woodard's gymn bag in 2012. I used it for the blades on two of the dresden's. #7 Fabric - painted print. Barb Roycroft brought me many meters of this one on bolts. April 2014 with batting. I used it for the back and the edges.

What are you most proud of? Using the techniques learned in several Carftsy classes. "Machine Quilting Negative space" I used the fabric key to choose the fabrics I chose the patterns to quilt it with and drew them on paper to practice. I used the breaking up method. "Color play for quilters" I chose a magazine picture to draw the color scheme from "Art quilting 101" I used some of the applique methods. I also used searching for the art quilter with in. " Leah Day's Library of free motion quilting designs" I went to Leah Day's site and chose these patterns. These are the designs I chose.... Leah Day's #84.Chain of Pearls Leah Day's #53.Heart Paisley Leah Day's #15.Flowing Glass Leah Day's #141.Swirling Water These four I used strategicly for the negative space between the dresdens and planets and moons. Leah Day's #26.Feather Filler I used this one on the plain parts of the dresden blades. Leah Day's #30.Trailing Tears Leah Day's #15.Flowing Glass Leah Day's #141.Swirling Water I used these three for the planets Leah Day's #66.Dresden Daisies I used this one on the edges of the quilt One planet is the signed label. "One of my fellow students on Craftsy that I follow. Dawny Duck's" BOM July Dresden I used her example of the dresden July block of the Month 2012 course, which I saved in 2012. In November 2013 - I made 5 of these dresden plate blocks with the inspired color scheme.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I was not sure how to post this quilt, because I put so much thought and watched so many videos over and over to accomplish it. After much thought I put it in this class, Because it is truely an art quilt.
