The guild had a secret angel swap for January's meeting. Back in November, each participant was assigned a recipient. Since I was so new to the guild, the chances were that I would have a recipient that I didn't know. I did. Heather wrote on her info sheet that she liked bright colors and would like a little quilt for the wall of her sewing room.
I made her this little Dresden Plate using Kaffe and Kaffe-ish fabrics, and the same background that I have been using for my own modern Dresden Plate project. This block is a few inches bigger than my plates are. I hand appliqued the plate, the center and the center-center and then hand quilted it in a thread that matches the lighter blue of the border. Heather was pleased! I also made her a little notebook cover and a pair of pot holders.
Stephanie had my name, and in my next post -- I hope -- I will show you the lovely gift that she made for me.
