Project 2 - Dresden Plate Wall Quilt
I'm making progress on my resolve to finish 4 ufo's before I start anything else. Yesterday I sewed a Halloween throw together and it's ready to quilt. Today I appliqued the 4 Dresden Plate blocks I had pieced together. I love doing machine applique. It's so fast! It's fast AND fun! As you can see, the applique is with invisible thread and the stitches are so close together that they will hold during washing after washing. Of course, if this ends up as a wall hanging, it won't be washed much, it at all. I don't do machine applique on the flowers in the center of the block. I prefer to quilt those down. So good for me! I'm off to trim the blocks and sew them together. Then I have to decide about a border.
