What's On Your Bed?


 
Inquiring minds at quiltville want to know!

The bed in this guest room is wearing the Dresden Plate that I finished in February.  I didn't want to fold it up and put it away just yet and it has the perfect look for spring and summer.   I've been thinking that I might want to make this pattern in a baby quilt size.  I think the 30's fabrics are perfect for baby quilts.


 This is the scene across the hall in the spare bedroom.  This is a quilt I made in 2007.  It is made of mostly batiks.  I took off the Christmas quilt and this was the next layer.  The occupants don't seem to mind what I put on this bed!


Somewhere in a box I have enough blocks made for another quilt. (I tried to make the colors more compatible?) I wasn't completely happy with the quilting either but I think it has grown on me.

I don't blame you for not wanting to put away your most recent finish just yet! It's perfect for spring!! Seeing your dolls on the other bed, make me wish that I still had some of mine from when I was growing up that my grandmother made for me. ;)

Love from Indiana! ~bonnie

I like your Dresden Pate quilt too. Old fashioned and so pretty for a bed. I agree the 30's prints work well in the old fashioned patterns. I used to cover my bed with stuffed animals and dolls too.

I like the batik quilt, but the Dresden Plate quilt absolutely sings of spring! Just beautiful!

I love that Dresden plate! I used to think I would try to make one. Then it was the BOM for this month. I don't think I will do an entire quilt of that!

If you get tired of yours though....

I really like the five inch squares with nine patch. A great way to use scraps to make a beautiful quilt. Someone will be very lucky to get that one.
