Dresden Flimsy

I finished piecing the Dresden Plate quilt.


It is 95" square (couldn't find a big enough place to lay it out). I used a whole jelly roll with a few extra squares cut from the leftover fat quarters to make the borders (they are 8" wide).
Just need to buy some batting and backing fabric, then I can get started on the quilting.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
