The quilting is finished on my Dresden Plate quilt. I think I was doing pebbles in my sleep!
It took a tremendous amount of thread and time, but the effort was worth it. The natural light really shows the quilting.
I still may try and do some quilting in the star flower........
Also, I had a bit of fun with the binding. Everything else is scrappy, so I went with a bit of a scrappy binding. Just a few colour changes.
This will go on the ever growing pile of "what do I do with it now" quilts !
The next week will be spent with family from both sides. I don't imagine I will be able to get any sewing done, but maybe they won't mind if I work on my hexagons while we visit.
Have a great week, and when I am back, maybe I will have something new to show you : )

Carla - it's beautiful!! Is it really hard to do pebbles? I've never tried it yet. It sure accentuates your dresdens and makes them come alive!
It looks incredible!
It's gorgeous! Pebbles take a lot of thread but they give such a satisfying texture to a quilt - it really makes your dresdens stand out! Just fabulous - love a scrappy binding!
I love the finish! It's perfect all around.
oh those pebbles are perfection!
Very pretty! The pebbles add wonderful texture, it's worth every bobbin fill (yep, I've done them, too)! I like your star centers ~
So beautiful!! Love the cheery colors!! xo Heather
What a sweet quilt and awesome machine quilting. You quilt with such happy colors, beautiful.
Carla! This is awesome! I love your quilting - pebbling definitely isn't for the faint of heart. The green background is the perfect choice for these plates - it makes the bright colors really pop!
How beautiful and I love the way you did the centers! Great pebbling too! Thanks for sharing.

The pebbles and the scrappy binding are simply perfect for this quilt. Just love it.
How pretty! I have a vintage dresden plate quilt, and the plates aren't quilted in that quilt, either. I love the 'poofy' effect it has.
The texture you have created in the background is just awesome - beautiful project!
nice pebbling and the finish is lovely! Have fun family time!
This is beautiful, and I love all the Kate Spain. I have a bit of her fabric in my current project!
I love Dresden plates and this is a stunner! Just tried fmq for the first time today, so am in awe of your perfect pebbling too :)
