Christmas quilt

HI friends!
Beautiful day!
I made 4 of the Dresden plates Sat. just sewing mindlessly.  We had a peaceful day, hubby watching football and races and me sewing.
 I put two of them on the white background and sewed them down and added the borders.

A good day of sewing on my Christmas quilt!
I still think these are just beautiful!
Our Oct. company will be coming in a couple of weeks and hubby's sweet cousin has a birthday a few days after our get together so i am going to do her a Dresden plate  pillow for her birthday.
She is a dear, i love her like i had growned up with her. Hoping to have some of the great grands come that day to show off.
Maybe this Sat. i will get some more on this Quilt.
Have a great day friends.

Dresden plate

Hi friends!
Another rainy day!
I made another block!
These take time because you sew the dresden plate together , then you sew them to a block of white and you sew the circle into the middle and then you sew all the 2 1/2 inch blocks into strips long enough to go all the way around.
 This is going to be one big quilt.  See how long it hangs over on a queen sized bed, by the time i add a border it will be a whooper.
I made that one on the top and i have the one i though looked to big done for  on my next row.  One more and i will have another row.  This quilt just has three rows because it's so big.
I will add a small border , i think.  I have some fabric that i want to add but it may not be big enough!
I will see when i get there.
Have a great day friends!

Christmas blocks

Hi friends!
It's been a beautiful day!
I hung my three blocks out but the first one looks to dark or to big one !
Then i did another block to take it's place, just to see if it looks better.
it does look darker, the first one of the three, but i think some way it may be a little larger too.
Not the whole block but the Dresden plate.
I think this  will look better, it's brighter!
But just these three blocks are almost queen sized!
I don't know what i will border it with yet. I will have to go thur all my Christmas fabric that are big enough to make a border and hold them up against them to see. I will be sure and put it on here when i pick it out.
 Have a great week friends!

My favorite color...RED
