Work on the orange dotty dresden quilt is coming along , I struggled with the applique at first.
I also struggled fitting the finished plate on the pattern block size
Next time I'll definitely cut them a little larger
I wanted to machine stitch & searching for the best result on my machine was becoming exceedingly frustrating
I finally accepted an offer to using a friends machine which has an almost perfect & invisible little applique stitch.
All the dresden plates are now appliqued & awaiting their orange centres
below you can see the block layout
there are a total of 30 blocks for the finished layout
This pillow is a birthday present for my friend who is a green freak
I think it's green enough
