I’ve just finished the top! Earlier this week I began piecing the blocks together with the white. Would you believe I ran out of my white fabric and had to take a trip to PQW to get more? (That’s ok because they had big pieces of fabric on sale and I got two four yard pieces of really nice fabric for just $12 each.)
So, in between each of the 11″ square block is a pretty big section of white. There is a 3″ border of white all around. And in the middle I appliqued the Dresden plate.
I am so thrilled with the black and white center, which I just finished stitching on. Look, Liesl loves it too!
Overall, I really like this. There are bigger expanses of white than I’d thought there would be and they are crying out to be quilted in a really beautiful way. Originally I was going to free motion machine quilt this, but now I’m considering hand quilting a design (possibly Dresden plate type design.)
