    1/2 way through first quilt and new to this site

    Hi ladies I am loving working on my first quilt ever. It is a dresden plate and just purchased materials for my border, framing the blocks and the strips to around my blocks. I'm really going to enjoy this new hobby. I thought this would be a great place to learn tips, techniques and shortcuts to help me with my new hobby.

      Welcome libbydawn! This is a wonderful site for great deals, instructions and inspiration! Did you get one of the Dresden Plate rulers shown in the tutorial here? Wonderful tool to have, I just got one and have played around with it alittle. Can't wait to make a quilt using it! I hope you show us some pictures of your progress and finished quilt.

            Thanks for all the warm welcomes! My quilt is 30 blocks. Being my first one, I've decided to only put 15 of my plates on it. Just every other block and my block is a white on white floral print. I'm going to quilt in the ditch and leave the white blocks plain with no quilting. I need to get some pictures on!!
