Dresden quilt

Another finished quilt.  This is a dresden quilt and it is made in 30's fabrics.
The quilting on it is stippling around the dresden blocks and ruler work in the blue area. 
There is also a little flower in the corners of the white blocks.  
In the small white border I used a stencil.  In the blue border I done stippling. 
The quilt has a beautiful yellow backing. 
I learned a lot while making this quilt because this was my first attempt at ruler work.
Hope you enjoy.

Another quilt finished.

This quilt was made for a young man that outgrew a quilt that i made him when he was very little. He loves quilts and that makes me soo happy.  I call this my Ocean Quilt.  I saw a similar one on pinterest and is where I got the idea.

Giving this another try..........

I gave up on blogging when I deleted several things but have decided now to try again.
It will be 99% quilting.

 Here is disappearing pinwheel/churndash. It is a Missouri Star pattern from their tutorials.
This was made using leftover fat quarters that I had. The border is batik. It has all the colors of the pinwheel/churndashes in it. This will be so pretty when quilted.  If anyone has ideas for quilting I would  be happy to hear them as I  don't have a idea yet of how I will quilt it.

Hope you had a wonderful and safe weekend.

More quilt pics to come.
