This is a beautiful quilt I repinned from Pinterest. When I first looked at it, I immediately thought it might be one by Edyta Sitar - and I was right. Love all the batiks she used (and probably non-batiks in the plates, too). I have finished appliquing and have my strip quilt all sewn together except for the outer borders. I am undecided about whether or not to make borders of approximately 9 inches (would give lots of room for some pretty quilting) or make another strip and have narrower borders. Will take it along to Sit and Sew and consult with my quilting buddies before I decide. Back to the dresden plate quilt - I have been thinking about making this in the same batiks I am using in the strippie quilt. I love the colors and have plenty of fabric. So----
here is the first plate I just finished putting together. This is for a 9" block so the finished piece would be approximately 37" square if done the same as Edyta's quilt which has no borders. I think the center circle will either be a gold or a soft brown. The colors in this picture are off and appear harsher than they actually are.
