Work In Progress Wed #23

Posted by Richard

This past week has been a good week with a lot of progress.  For Richard he has been working on his Dresden quilt that he wants to show of Thursday at guild meeting.


So far I have quilted around each of the 3 items on the quilt and am now working my way outwards.  I have well not got a full plan yet for what all I am quilting it with.  This is my first quilt that has not been pieced for the top (meaning that I have a single material with applique on them).  So filling in the other area's with enough quilting to make it look good is where I am now stuck.

Tanya this last week has been helping me baste quilts.  She also finished a top 


She has not yet taken a picture of the top yet, but it has these squares in it.  

Rebecca my daughter also spent some time this week working on her quilt 

Hum after some time searching I was unable to find a picture of her quilting on it.  I am sure I took one, but can't find it now so just picture her quilting away.

Last but not least, we have one week left until school starts and it will not go fast enough.  The kids are about to drive me crazy and its time to get them busy again.




Today is going to be a Work In Progress Wednesday.   I will be linking up with Freshly Pieced.

Your arrangement of the Dresdens looks wonderful. I hope inspiration for the quilting strikes you soon!

Richard, I have a suggestion for the quilting. If you can print off or draw a star or heart or something like that on cardstock or template, cut it out, then draw around it on your quilt or sew around it using your FMQ foot. That will make a nice quilting design spread over your quilt. Not sure if it is enough, but it would be a start. Good luck! Looks great!

That is so cool that there are so many quilters in the family! I would bet that sharing that awesome dresden plate off at guild meeting will inspire lots of quilting suggestions. Hope you get the perfect inspiration.

What a fun dresden quilt. I hope you figure out how to quilt the remaining areas. Really neat that all of you quilt a lot of creativity in one home!
