DQS8 out the door!

Phew! It's all done and off to my partner! This little quilt was my first attempt at dresden plates and they were a lot of fun to do and easier than they look (at least to me). I know my partner likes blue so I decided to go with the color theme and used lots of my very favorite fabrics. I'm not 100% sure it is her style so I hope she likes it!

My walking foot sort of gave me some grief so the quilting is really minimal. I didn't want to risk screwing it up before mailing day! Partner you are welcome to embellish it all you like if you think it needs it. I just hope you love it as much as I love the sweet little quilt I received.

OK Lucy just started crawling for real today so I am off to catch her (something I'm sure I'll be doing a lot of in days to come)!


  1. You partner is going to love this and I love the color.

  2. Way to go! I've been tooooo scared to try something new and slightly awkward looking like a dresden plate, but if you say it's not so bad.......
    Congrats/Bummer on the crawling :)
    Exciting because new stages are always exciting, but my goodness are you in for it. My little girl turned one yesterday, and she has been walking for 2 months chasing her big bro. It's soooooooo not helpful to sewing.

    And you have to be extra careful not to drop pins. I've had some major mom guilt from leaving pins on the floor.

    Cheers :) Raven

  3. Go Lucy :-)
    And that quilt is gorgeous!!! Someone is very lucky.
