    Dresden quilt top ! finished ?

    Ok, I finally finished this quilt top ! Should I leave it alone or put a narrow border of white or white with my dresden plate scraps then the black binding ? I'm trying to make it a little bigger ! I appreciate your input !!!! : )

    Oh! I love it! Beautiful colors! If you have enough dresden plate scraps it might be nice to add squares of them going all around the quilt so that it contains all the fabrics that are in your plates. Just a thought.

      Very nice. I think a border of white and the scraps with black binding would look great.

          I love the rich colors in your plates! I would add another border. I believe I would use the scraps and bind in black....Barb

            Absolutely gorgeous!! My favorite design although I have never tried one. Did you use the special tool for it?

              Very nice quilt, a piano keyboard (????? is that correct) of the dresden scraps would be very nice. That would make your quilt larger too

                    Very pretty. Love the colors. Also love your idea for the border - white with dresden scraps. Mamaquilt's idea for the scraps would be great too. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

                        I'm echoing - I'd do a very tiny white 'fake piping' then piano keys with scraps from the plates, then bind in black. It is beautiful!

                              I love the idea of a white border & using the dresden scraps. Even at this point,your quilt is beautiful !
