I made my first dresden plate for a 12 month block swap a few months ago and fell head over heals in love.
So much so that I made another and turned it into a coaster for my vase.
I love bright cheerful things to help get me through these grey winter days. I must confess to still having my new years eve bunting hanging up in the house.
It was so pretty, I made a few more and appliqued them onto a quilt top:
I’ve got a fabulous rainbow polka dot to back it with.
I have, however, been having some trouble bringing myself to quilt it. There is so much white space that I’m finding it a little intimidating. I’ve chosen a free motion design and I’ve done a bit of practice but every time I sit down at the sewing machine I’m struck with a bad case of quilters block.
I just love this quilt and I’d hate to see it languish for months as a UFO so please help me! Have you ever had quilters block? How did you overcome it?
