It's that time again! I so look forward to the online quilt festivals. So without further ado, on to my quilt. I have had this quilt on my blog before but it was a long time ago so I thought you might want another look.
I call it "Mom's Dresden Plates" and made it to honor my Mom who passed away in the fall of 2008. She was 96. She and I used to go to quilt shows together and I noticed she was always attracted to the quilts with Dresden Plates. I chose thirties fabrics because I'll never forget the day we walked into a quilt shop will a large display of these fabrics. She was so excited! To tell you the truth, I just thought they were kind of weird, but they have grown on me and I love them now. I think Mom loved them so much because the originals came out when she was a young wife and mother and the reproductions brought back so many happy memories. This quilt is very small, fifteen inches by nineteen inches. The blocks measure four inches square. I made more blocks than I needed so I used one on the label on the back. I also made these two pin cushions from another two.
I hope you have enjoyed my quilt and my story. Many thinks to Amy for hosting this event. If you would like to see more quilts and read more stories, go here. Thank you for stopping by!
