Bloggers Quilt Festival

Welcome back Dear Readers!


It's time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival again, hosted by the super Amy Ellis This year I'm entering the Dresden Quilt I made for my friend's daughter's 1st Birthday. It's made with pink and white fabrics so I will enter it in the two color quilts category. If you really like the quilt I'd appreciate your nomination :)
I finished the quilt in August, 2012. It was machine pieced, hand appliqued, and machine quilted by me. The little cute pinwheels in the corners are 3-D which I'm really proud of :) I really loved making this quilt and even did a tutorial how to do the Dresden plates block and a perfect circle. The blocks are 12" finished, there are 2" sashings with cornerstones, and the borders measure 4". The finished size of the quilt is 48" x 60".

Here are the pictures I took, enjoy!

I had some "blades" leftover which I pieced into the backing

Thank you so much for looking and hope I'll see you quilt in there, too!

'Til we blog again! :)


  1. Oh, Kati, it's just gorgeous! The quilting is amazing and I love how you use the blades in the back. How did you get the horizontal to line up so perfectly? That's always a challenge for me. I get it almost even but never exactly. It's perfect and sure your friend's daughter will love it more and more as she grows older.

  2. It is absolutely gorgeous, i like this very much:)))

  3. This is such a pretty quilt and so lovely for a 1st birthday. It's like coconut ice or a strawberry cupcake in those pinks and whites. The quilting looks great, I really like the spirals in the center of the dresdans. A really gorgeous quilt!

  4. It's absolutely darling! Beautiful quilting.

  5. How sweet! A Dresden plate quilt is on my "to do" list...which is way too long already!

  6. How sweet! A Dresden plate quilt is on my "to do" list...and it's way too long already!

  7. Kati, I love the colors and the Dresdens! So pretty!

  8. Your quilt is delightful and so gorgeous as a birthday gift. Lovely colourings in the pinks and great to see some of the blades in the backing as well. Beautiful work with the quilting as well.

  9. Dresden plates are still on my list of things I want to try. Your quilt is so beautiful and inspiring.
