I'm still sick. It's been a whole week of YUCK. I'm sick of being sick!
Rather than whining about my soon-to-explode head, I'll share another project.
I bought 15 vintage feedsack Dresden Plate blocks off of ebay over a year ago. I pull them out every now and then and imagine their future quilty loveliness but I never gathered the strength to actually begin the process of appliqueing them onto a background fabric. Part of my hesitance was knowing that the eventual quilt should be handquilted-----it only makes sense with those beautiful vintage fabrics.
I love this one...
My handquilting courage is adequately mustered and I'm only now beginning the appliqueing portion. It's a l-o-n-g work in progress. Lucky for me, I feel happy whenever I look at these cheery blocks---- the Dresden Plate is one of my all-time favorite quilt blocks.
