Dresden Plate Quilt

 Here is my first quilt finish for 2013.  It is also my first dresden plate quilt.  I used all vintage or thrifted fabrics, except the natural colored linen that surrounds each dresden plate.   I originally was going to make 24 plates, but ended up with 9.  Each plate can be very time consuming:) Here's a link to the pattern I used:

 I machine quilted the borders and edges, and hand quilted around each dresden plate.  The quilt measures 62'' by 69''.  Each block is 16''x 16''.

Here is my sweet lil Taj behind my lavender.  Xo~ Amanda
