30's Dresden Quilt

A while ago I mentioned a kit my mom had purchased for me
on one of her trips.
It's a mini Dresden plate made from 30's prints.
I am not a fan of 30's prints,
but my mom is.

Let me tell you....
this is one of the cutest little quilts I've made!

The Dresden plates are machine stitched and
hand appliqued to the backround fabric. 
 I saw the border fabric the other day
while shopping for something else and
knew it was perfect for this little quilt.


The sashing pieces were randomly chosen,
but I should have moved the green strips that are
next to each other.

Oh well....


This is pin basted and ready for quilting!

I'm not a convert to the 30's prints, but I really do like this quilt.

Happy Quilting!

I absolutely adore this little quilt. It's so bright and happy. Your border fabric is perfect, who would have thought to use a tiny white background print for the borders?! Well you would! Making a note to self to try this someday.

I share your feelings about 30s prints, also agree that it's a cute little quilt. You found the perfect border.

I know what you mean, I have very few of that style and do not use often - but your mom will love it and that is what counts!

I can't believe I missed this! This is so cute! I love how bright and fun it is and the border is perfect. 30's are not my style of fabrics, but I had a friend that was crazy about them and I inherited her quilts and her fabrics. Fortunately my oldest daughter loves them so her room here is decorated with them. I can have them out, but don't have to see them frequently!
