Antique Dresdan Plate

This is a friends Grandmother's quilt from the 20's and 30's.  It has had a place of honor on their living room wall for many years.  In fact when one of my grown daughters saw a picture of this quilt she recognized it.  I am so glad to have these special people as life long friends.  

Dresdan Plate

This is after I squared each block and ready to quilt.
 You Can see below that a couple of the blades in each block have been worn over time.  By stitching each blade it will keep others from fraying and preserve the rest of the damaged blade.
After each block is quilted.  Fabrics from 20's and 30's...Sashing from 90's

Each Blade has a special curl individualized for the shape of blade
