FINISHED: Dresden Plate Doll Quilt

Here's another recent finish from the UFO pile.   This started out as a "pattern plus" kit from the local quilt store. I did it scrappy style, using several Aunt Grace and other 30s reproduction fabrics. The outer blue border fabric is vintage.  Started in 1993, left with just the fabric cut and one 'plate' finished.

The Dresden Plates were hand pieced over papers from "Paper Pieces" and the color choices on their pattern informed mine. Plates are hand pieced and hand appliqued and then the rest of the top was machine pieced. The sashing strips are a half inch wide finished.

Pattern is "Miniature Dresden Plate" by Paper Pieces, KY.

Top completed 4/15/2017. Machine quilted on my DSM (Domestic Sewing Machine),  a Singer Featherweight 221. Quilt completed 6/18/2017. Size is 18 x 24 inches (approx).

This will be gifted to Alexis for Christmas this year.
