More Dresden pictures

Hello again,
As promised I'm back with more pictures that I took outside this time after washing the quilt. Unfortunately I couldn't take a vertical picture because of the lack of hanging up opportunities. 
We met Birthday Girl and her Mom at the park where we gave it to them, Mom was crying :)) She liked it very much. It makes me totally happy to know that it will be appreciated. She even said that it's big enough for her :)
There were a few things I wanted to answer before I  post the pictures. Someone was asking which fabric line I was using. I picked the fabrics out of my stash, no particular fabric line, I don't think even 2 of them were from the same manufacturer. There was another question about the quilting. I quilt my quilts on my Singer 201-2 sewing machine (picture is here in my first blogpost). I have not made any quilts with marking. Yet. That's coming up in the future I'm sure :) I do not follow any patterns, just totally free motion quilting.

With no further ado here are the additional pictures, enjoy!

  1. Wow Kati! That is seriously amazing! No wonder the mum cried - it's gorgeous!

    Your FMQ is awesome - and no marking? Wow wow wow!

  2. Our quilt guild's speaker this month was Becky Goldsmith and her topic was color. She talked about what our eye sees and how the most interesting and fascinating part of any picture goes to the "outliers" the item that stands out the most. Your quilt is wonderful and not because of your excellent work but because of those dark dresdens the pop up sporadically through out!! I don't like pink, but I am in love with this quilt!! Thought I'd share. :)

  3. Love the colors of your quilt. I've always loved pink. Your machine quilting is beautiful! It just adds some really awesome texture to your quilt. I love it!

  4. It is a beautiful quilt. Oh how I wish I could do FMQ'ing like you do. It looks extraordinary :) Thank you for linking up to TGIFF this week at

  5. You did such a BEAUTIFUL job with the whole thing. Your fmq ROCKS!!! I am totally inspired!! Again, you did such a FANTASTIC job!!!

  6. This is wonderful! I adore the 3D pinwheels on the corners, too. :)

  7. It's beautiful. Congrats on the finish. I'm not surprised she liked it. But isn't it great when someone loves something you've made for them. That true appreciation makes me want to make more things for them

  8. I love the quilting it is so beautiful!

  9. Love your quilt. I love seeing all the pink fabrics you used and how you finished the back. Thanks for showing us all that quilting, front and back, as I'm always interested in seeing how others quilt their quilts. Great job!

  10. Wow!!! It's gorgeous! You've done a great job with the quilting - love the texture. It looks so soft and I'm sure the birthday girl can't wait to cuddle under it. Fantastic job, Kati. =)

  11. Kati, I've just finished reading your last 3 posts on your Dresden quilt. It is simply stunning and amazing and so very, very beautiful. I've loved it from the start and your quilting has finished it off perfectly. You are a very talented quilter :)
