Dresden Blocks update project 3
This is the last item I created using the Dresden blocks that Debbie from http://www.makinquilts.blogspot.com/ sent me.
I decided to hand quilt this wall quilt and it is beating my fingers up. I tried using that little disk on my finger that is supposed to feel the needle once it goes through the fabric, but the disk is very inconvenient.
The lavender fabric came attached to the blocks already. I added the green garden trellis blocks that I have been working on and the purple border from fabric that I dyed.
I used Presencia pearl cotton on the Dresden plates and I am hand quilting the dogwood flowers I sketched on it.
I am liking this very much and I cannot thank Debbie enough for the wonderful blocks.
Any hand quilting suggestions will be appreciated.
I was thinking about purchasing the Thimbleladys video because her technique is supposed to be painless so I would appreciate some advise on that too.
