For the longest time, I've been wanting to make a Dresden Plate quilt. This summer it will be three years, I think, since I bought the tool. But nothing has happened. I've entertained various ideas. I've examined the plates on the blogs. I've pulled out and fondled fabrics (Batiks on black? Contemporary on Kona snow?). But no more than that. All at once, though, I know what kind of DP I want to make. I have this great big tub of CWs, all kinds of CWs, and that's what I'll use for the blades. I haven't decided about the background(s) yet. Am thinking shirtings, but that isn't a definite. I do know I want the kind of blades that point, not the rounded ones.
Having Row, Row, Row Your Boat and Brian-Erin complete to flimsy stage (they're both going off to the machinist next week), it seems I should be entitled to start something new. I promise to dig out a UFO to use for leader-endering. Oh, my -- the fingers are just itching to get started!
And, no, that's not a picture of Turbo luxuriating at White Oak. It's something I downloaded from the Bunny Hill Blog. Whoever she is, it's pretty obvious that she's having a most wonderful time. I intend to join her. Forthwith.
