Scrappy Dresden Finish

Yesterday I finished quilting and binding my Scrappy Dresden quilt. I'm thrilled with the results.  
 So glad I did the extra digging in my stash for the aqua. I love the red and aqua plates on my scrappy black/gray background.
I'm even pleased with how the quilting turned out. It really isn't my strong point. Though I'm starting to feel more confident with it.
 I'm glad the weather cooperated for pictures. Another snow storm is forcasted. We go almost all winter without snow. Temperatures have abnormally warm all winter. Then just as spring is about to arrive we get dumped on. We had 6" last weekend and we are suppose to get another 8" this weekend.
I guess I'll get to use the snowshoes I got for Christmas after all.

    1. You can. It reduces bulk. But I didn't. I'm naughty and more of a quick and dirty quilter.
