Work in Progress - Batik Dresden Quilt.

This week I have been working on a Christmas quilt for my eldest daughter Natalya.
A dear friend in America sent me some gorgeous batiks ( love batiks!!!)

I decided to set the plates on a black background to accentuate the colours.


Thank goodness for my Dresden Plate ruler.  it takes a lot of hard work out of it.

MMMM - to sash or not to sash ????

This is as far as I have got at the moment.  I will be starting on the borders later on today and I cannot wait to quilt it as I got the most gorgeous rainbow coloured thread at the quilt show.

I'm linking this post to http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/ for Work in Progress Wednesday.

If you are in the middle of something, please head over there and share your work.  We would love to see it.
Til the next time .....
Rhianon.
