Sugar Dish and the Jabber…

Showing you more of this quilt totally skipped my mind until yesterday when I was literally smooshing it into the “quilt” closet.  This quilt came about because I wanted to do a girly quilt with dresden plates.  Original I know.  But… wouldn’t it be cute on a toddler bed?  With those little dresden plates going across the bottom of the bed all in a row?  Gheesh I need a girl.

    your quilts are absolutely stunning. i bet if you had (have) a girl, your sewing/crafting projects would explode out of control. :) not that i would know since i only have a boy so far…but i've noticed among my friends that they only start pulling out (or buying) the sewing machine once a girl enters the family!

    This quilt is lovely! So cute and feminine!

  34. Lauren @ Craft My Life Away January 31, 2011 at 5:16 pm #

    I don't like a whole quilt of dresdens, but they look so fresh and modern in the midst of the squares. Brilliant design. Love it!! Just finished my raw edge circles quilt based on your tute, by the way.
