W-R-O-N-G-! When I got the binding on it curled the edges - making it into a shallow bowl shape - ugh! Guess I'll have to try that again - anyone have suggestions for a happier result?
I enjoyed making the Dresdens, so found a striped fabric and used that to make a few more - the resulting concentric circles are kind of fun, but I wonder if the points should have been omitted - they're sure not very visible. Oh well, I only have one more left to applique onto the background square so it's going to stay the way it is. There are nine of these.
And speaking of Dresden Plate quilts, I thought I'd share this picture of the quilt I've had on my bed for several years - it's a favorite! I started out by making log cabin blocks, but the big open spaces were just too boring - so I made some scrappy plates to fill the void and it made such a huge difference.
This is one of the last quilts I hand quilted and might be the last. Appliqueing the striped Dresden blocks has been killing my hands the last few days - they just ache when I get into bed each night - so maybe that type of handwork is done for me (sigh)....
On to rug hooking - I met with the Salt Lake Group on Wednesday. Nancy was hooking a cute chicken chair pad that will eventually be centered in a larger rectangle to make a rug instead of a mat.
The other Nancy attended for the first time in over a year - she had a design from Lisanne Miller that she was working on. We had a new gal there working on her very first project, but I forgot to grab a picture of that.
I was working on my Christmas runner and it looks pretty much the same as it did last week, so I won't add a photo of that. Tomorrow is the Utah Hook In and I'm looking forward to attending. Will share pictures from that when I get home.
