Leslie arrived at my house with 16 vintage Dresden Plate quilt blocks. Leslie told me that her maternal grandmother and great-grandmother had pieced and hand embroidered them all. Leslie told me that they were all from flour sacks from the 1930's and 40's, and a few had segment that had been replaced. I think at some point in their existence they may have been put into a quilt top and tied to finish. This is just based on some stitching lines around some of the blocks, and what appears to be the remnants from a yarn tie in the center of most of the blocks. Leslie trusted me with these lovely blocks, and asked me to make them into a quilt of 12 blocks, and 4 pillows. Lucky me!
I trimmed all the blocks to a consistent size, then added sashing fabrics and corner stones for frames. Then the real fun began because I got to quilt them!
