Before I show my last bag I thought I would show off what I accomplished this weekend. I completely appliqued all my Dresden plate blocks to the white background -- pulled out all the basting stitches and removed all the paper. Busy work. I have 20 block all together but I could only put 16 up on my design wall. I still have the centres of the blocks to complete - but it feels good to have the blocks all appliqued.
I have two blocks with the centres finished. The centre has blue melons on top of a yellow circle. The block is not actually a Dresden Plate it is called a Chrysanthemum I think - because it has the four pointy pieces and the melons in the centre.
I am going to put the quilt together with sashing that is purple and white and corner blocks that are purple and white nine patches. I can't remember when I started this quilt - but I quite like it. It is my "30's" quilt. So that was my weekend - more or less. And in good Vancouver fashion there was a lot of rain and wind on Friday - but Saturday was actually not too bad. There is some terrible weather still happening in Colorado with the snow storms and avalanches. I hope this winter ends soon.
