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. :)
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. :)
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!
It was built to last.
What do you think? Could ya'll quilt a quilt this much? Even with friends?
Have a great day friends!
