I quilted funky flowers and leaves on the spaces between the dresdens

straight lines are hard to long arm quilt, you have to use a ruler and go really slow and these dresdens were HUGE so I could only do half of one before having to forward the quilt, it was fun though!

Have you ever done a dresden quilt?

Wow Bea!! I clicked on the photos so I could see your quilting better and it is beautiful! Your straight lines are perfect....sounds like a lot of work. Don't look too close at the lines on my tote.

Can't wait to see the finished hexies project. The customer's quilt is done very nicely. I made some Dresden blocks for a baby quilt and anotoher I turned into a turkey block. The one I like the best is the kaleidoscope Dresden blocks using Bethany Reynold's Stack 'n Whack method.
