Next Project

 If you read the previous post l need space to lay out my next Patchwork creation.  Well here it is an old favourite of many quilters, the Dresden Plate.  Making it from a Bali Pop that l purchase in Melbourne whilst on retreat this year.  Always wanted to make one, but unsure which method l should try. So when l was recently at the  Toowoomba Quilt show, l scanned the stores for ideas and came across Busy Fingers and the paper piecing method sounded the better way to go.  After making my purchases and heading home. l had to put things on hold for several hours to finish another project place in my path.  After tracing around the template for many hours and cutting for even more hours, l was finally able to place my pieces on the floor to view what l was going to be working with.  After a while l came up with the colour combination l am happy with.  This is a project to be taken to quilting each week, where l can hand sew it and watch it grow into a beautiful quilt .....or if l tire a table runner.....   lol.
