Even more antique Dresden plates

I'm really enjoying sharing these Dresden plates here with you. Showing a few pictures at a time makes me feel that this beauty is getting it's due. And I don't feel like I am over-tiring ya'll too much. :)

Today's #dresdenaday

I think the saying goes, "they don't make 'em like they used to." And I think that is absolutely true here. At least in my family. :)

The quilting between the #dresdenaday blocks.

I just can't imagine the investment of time and energy and patience and commitment that went into making this quilt. Mostly what blows my mind is the amount of hand-quilting.

And maybe it was hand-quilted at a quilting bee by a group of women. But still. So much quilting!

#dresdenaday

It was built to last.

A make-do #dresdenaday.

What do you think? Could ya'll quilt a quilt this much? Even with friends?

Have a great day friends!

  2. That is some heavy quilting! Very intricate and fun to scan over each Dresden to see those tiny stitches everywhere! Thank you for sharing Becca.

  3. I could. If there were no sewing machines, plenty of needles, thread, water, chocolate and TV :) I would make no claims to be finished anytime soon though.

It'd be ever so awesome if you left a comment. I (try) to reply to each one. Thank you!
