Lovely, lovely quilts and applause for finishing the last Dresden Plate block! Love the fabrics, too!

Is the blue Stargazer quilt already quilted? If not, I can tell you that it's not too late to remove the blue border you find is blah. Been there, done that. It's a bit of unsewing on the long sides, and a stitch or two past the seam allowance where the stars meet. Consider whether that effort will help you love the quilt and, if so, go for it! It's food for thought anyway.

Cheers for Eva's Big Girl bed and how funny that she imagined it would be higher. Have you got a fuzzy rug next to the bed as a soft landing zone for when she rolls out? I made a stuffed "bear rug" for our boys to serve that function. Worked well.

Rainy day here, so hope to machine quilt the two Scottie dog table runners.

The Dresden plate is pretty. I think the quilt will be a beauty. Love the star quilt. I do remember that pattern. I hope I pulled it out. We are in the "new" house finally and the last of the furniture will be here Thursday. I swear I am never moving again!



Isn't it wonderful when you finish the last block in a project from years before - and you still like it! Fig tree fabrics are so lovely and timeless. Loved your story about Eva and her big girl bed...too funny!


lol @ eva! ;p love the quilts and yes, bolder tan for the second one would be awesome.

You are really finishing up your UFO"s ! Good for you !!
Just love these Dresden blocks ! This is going to be a gorgeous quilt :-D


Love fig tree fabrics and how they play so well together! Too funny about Eva, love that age :)


Can't wait to see the dresden plates all together. You have done such a gorgeous job on them!

Do you still have the pattern/magazine for the Stargazer quilt? I've searched the net and can't seem to find the magazine anywhere. Would love to make it.


I love your Dresden and your Star quilts... both of them!
I'll bet E was expecting a princess and the pea kind of bed... I know I would be!
