    Default Dresden Plate . . . .what to do !



    This is as far as I got on this quilt top. I'm kind of building as I go so it's definately a "work in progress". I think I'm going to use a solid green border next. This top kind of got pushed by the wayside when I started working six days a week. LOL!

    It still needs leaves and "maybe" some grass at the base of the flowers.

    Love the colors.....very springy or summery. I work this way.......just building as I go. .....generally turns out fine. I think I would put a thin border of yellow then the green.......just my opinion. Looks good!

    Very cute...can't wait to see it with the leaves and grass. Would be cute to add something to the center of the flowers if you had a mind to embellish it further. Love those colors!

    Hmmmm....I'll have to see if I have some yellow. .... originally, I thought that a border of the prints might do it but yellow is a good idea. I'm kind of at a stand still until I do the blocks for the Patriotic Swap.
