Give Away Time......

Well its been a while yet again !! & I just realised that I have passed 200 posts by 6 so I will have a give away.... I have NO idea what as I just thought about it!! but I will think of something yummy plus this way I can tailor it to the winner :)


So the Dresden plates are all finished & ready to put together so comments please on your choice of setting
"To Sash or Not to Sash... that is the question"









This might not be the final choice for the sashing material.... I have a few different ones that I can use...


Or without ...I also have quarter blocks that I will use in the corners




Here is my latest finish
"Cherries & Chocolate'
I first saw this pattern on MayBritts blog...I think the pattern is called Bread & Butter & was a free one on the net...my layout is a bit different as I didnt read all the instructions before I started putting it together !! but I am still very happy with it ...the material is "More Pink & Chocolate"...






My lovely longarmer " House of Valerie" did her usual beautiful work on it.... a vine of heart shaped leaves most appropriate as it has gone to the Uk to live with my beautiful cousin Tonya who is fighting Ovarian cancer for the second time...I know that Val quilted many good wishes & love into it & did it VERY quickly for me so it could be sent off...





I have a fair bit of this material left ..it was a fat quarter bundle so am planning to make a quilt for me with the leftovers...




So get your comments in with your choice of sashing for teh Dresden plates & I'll draw it in a weeks time


Have a happy stitching week....

Lovely bread and butter quilt.
What about doing only vertical sashing on your dresden quilt ? Adds a little without taking to much attention :-)

I love your bread and butter quilt. I see you have put it together in a different way than the original pattern, and I love it :)
For your dresden plate borders I would have chosed fabrics from all your dresden plates and made a border out of them. Cut stripes or rectangels.

Love the latest quilt - the pinks and chocolates look wonderful.

Im so sorry i didnt catch you yesterday but we were enduring a flood and then a shock at Maison Pyjamas. Ugh!

Well, both do look pretty good Claire, but I won't sit on the fence. I vote for sashing because I am completely in love with sashings of all types at the moment. Heaven knows why, but I think if the blocks are individuals (not contributing to the whole) sash 'em! Lol

I like no sashing. It's good either way though.

I like the sashings on the dresden plates, and cherries and chocolate quilt is beautiful.

Time flies when you're having fun hey....I really think I like your dresden plates without sashing. Good luck making a decision though as they both look good..hugs Khris
