Dresden plates

Today I took the day off from my Gammill because I finished a really tough, big quilt yesterday.  I sat at my machine and sewed together some Dresden plate blocks.  I still have to turn the edges under on all the blades.  Ugh… I am not fond of that part.  But it will be good to have some hand work to do do in front of tv. After turning the edges under,  I plan on machine stitching them to a plain block.

The cross stitch/embroidery blocks I hand stitched about 8 years ago.  I would really like to get this put together and finished this year.
