New Baby Quilt And Ebay Find!

 I am just learning to make dresden plates as you know and just couldnt resist this great find on Ebay last week. I think they are all old fabrics but in great condition. Some blocks are pastel and a little faded, but that is ok with me. This must have been a summer spread. It is not quilted but rather backed with a cotton sheet. What do you think? I can remember Granny having lighter throws on her bed during the hot summer months.
Here are my little plates. I have 8 of them made and working on the rest today. I still have to sew the centers. Im making this baby quilt with 16 ten inch blocks and a border. Im using my favorite Moda fabric and just loving the way it is turning out!
Well, back to the kitchen. Im making a chocolate pie and beef stew for lunch. The sun is finally shining today and I really need to repot a few plants later today. Just checked all of my classes and have alot of papers to write today as well. Have a happy and blessed Sunday!
