This week I've decided to resurrect this project and complete the very small amount of handsewing involved. The handsewing was completed on an evening and the progress of this quilt has progressed as a result. Yay!
I have just sewn lines where the fabric seams meet and I am sure they will keep the plates in place. I have double sewn the points of the plates, which creates both a nice look but is also good at keeping everything secure.
As ever, I am quilting with my Aurifil threads. White on the front and the most beautiful turquoise on the back, which matches the backing fabric perfectly. The quilting I have done is creating a lovely flower-like pattern on the back of the quilt.
This project is now progressing at a pace, though I am now wondering whether I should add some smaller scrappy Dresden plates to the corners where there is currently a lot of white fabric. Hopefully this will be finished this weekend.
Happy sewing everyone!
