I think I'll call her "Sunny" or maybe "Hello Sunshine", because these little Dresden Plates remind me so much of sunshine!
This quilt was a classic case of love at first sight! When I first saw this pattern (Sugar Dish) by Cluck Cluck Sew, I just had to make this quilt. I added a few rows, including an extra row of Dresden Sunshine to make it a little larger.
And, I used "Fresh Air" fabric by American Jane for Moda.
And, although it's made of 30's fabric, it reminded me so much of Spring time (again – those sunny little Dresdens), that I decided to quilt it with my "Butterfly Garden" pantograph!
And, my new Gammil has a fun little feature
that tells the machine running time (it takes a lot longer to quilt with loading, rolling, adjusting, etc.), and the number of quilting stitches in the quilt! So, this quilt took almost 2 ½ hours of quilting time and has almost 95,000 quilting stitches in it :0)!
I think we're going to be snuggling with this one for a long time to come ;)!
