Still Seeing Red
This block has been appliqued down and I used dark but clear filament thread in my machine. It went quickly and the bites don't show enough to detract from the piece. So much quicker than hand applique.
A week or so ago I stopped at the Park Bench to get some more fabric for this quilt and I had some of the plates with me. Patty, one of the owners, was loving it and after I left, I think she started making a block of her own. She also got Ann, her partner, going and Ann, too, is working on some gorgeous blocks. I was in there today and they had been searching through Pinterest for more ideas. They have a post on their blog, too -
Park Bench Quilt Shop: Dresden Plates Modern Style!. The Park Bench is a beautiful quilt shop, full of scrumptious, colorful fabric - these girls have an eye for it. I would love to have at least half a yard of each bolt!!! That ain't going to happen, though, but I will get as much as I can.
