Dresden Plate

This is the quilt I took to Nicky's 2nd baby shower yesterday. We both really love this quilt. I like the scalloped border too. If I wouldn't have been so lazy I would have appliqued flowers and vines on the border, but. . .
These are 6 inch blocks. It was quilted by Laura Erickson in Orem.
We both took our cameras but forgot to take any pictures of all the cute things she received. The party was lots of fun. We played "guess the baby food" game. I only got 3 of 6 right! They all smelled pretty bad tho. Brought back a few memories of sprayed food all over me. The girls who gave it for Nicky had really gone all out with all the food and decorations and games. I think Patrick's favorite gift was a book called "Skippyjon Jones". He had to read it to us, laughing the whole time.
Happy Quilting. Lynda

Skippyjohn Jones is a favorite of my kids at school, I'm not surprised he loved it!
I think this dresden is a real beauty! You come up with the neatest ideas, Lynda, really neat!

It looks perfect without any applique, Lynda! I too hate the smell of those storebought baby foods. I prepared all my daughter's dinners myself when she was a baby because of the smell. I was very happy when grandson started eating regular dinners so we could stop with that horrible stuff.

Hi Lynda; thanks for visiting my "little blog". I love the Dresden Baby quilt you've made for your daughter. Just fabulous: she and the baby are very lucky. Happy Weekend. Vreni
PS: I also have a daughter called Krista, but we spell it Christa ;)
