So after watching her class I got to thinking about this Jelly Roll Race quilt top I did a few years ago. I didn't use a store bought Jelly Roll. I cut up a bunch of 2.5" strips from a box of fall colored fabrics and away I went. I really, really didn't like the way it turned out so it went into my closet. Anyway, I thought this quilt top would be perfect to add some Dresden Plates to. Just for fun... just to play. What could it hurt? I didn't like the top anyway!
So I started making plates... I now call them flowers!
That was fun... lets make another! I really liked this one on it's own but not too sure about it on the quilt top.
So added a third...
The one on the top left corner just bends to much... I'll make some more!
Still not happy with that one... but I really, really like this one!
Let's move them around a bit... and add one more!
I've decide I like the flowers to be more contrasting to the quilt top. Lets them pop! You can also I see that I keep move the big centers around from flower to flower... I have a few more to make, and what has been fabulous is I'm only using fabrics I already have. No new fabrics!!! I can't wait to make more!!!
Sorry that some of the pictures are a bit blurry... I took the same pic about 5 times and it didn't get better.
What's on your wall???? Check out what everyone is doing over at Judy's!
Oh yeah! I've named this quilt Wild Flowers!!! I think I'm starting to like it :-)
