Do you ever come out of your quilt shop and think "uh-oh what have I done"?




The dear sweet lady who owns the local quilt shop gave me these. She was doing some cleaning out and came across these partially made dresden plate blocks. She promises that it will be simple to finish them (we'll see). There are some finished plates and lots of pieces. I hated to say no so I took them - I only took about 1/3rd. Two other women in my sewing group took the rest so it could have been worse. Plus they were free and I think it made her happy that we took them. What about these 70's fabrics?

Wow... I wouldn't know what to do with them, but I would have taken them too! Looks like you've got a fun project on your hands!

And you gotta tell me how you added Lynette's Noah's Ark picture and link. :-)

Gorgeous vintage calicos! I've been adding to my retro 70's stash over the years and even have 2 complete "Yours Truly" vintage calico dresden plate kits to finish - so lovely - you will have no trouble completing these blocks, I'm sure!
