Dresden plate for Christmas

I love to work with Dresden plate since the day i learned it..

….and i have done a few  of Dresden plate projects before.

This is my Christmas version..

It is a table runner with 3 Dresden plates in Christmas fabric,

on a cream/off white Linen background, with size 50”L x 16”W..

I loved the stippling that i did with my Janome Horizon 8900…

even though i have done free motion quilting before,

this was my first attempt of free motion quilting on my new machine,

I tried different shots to get the full runner…

but the color didn’t come out fine because of the lack of day light.

This image is the right color of the runner that i took in the day light..

I loved this piece of my work and I’m really proud of it…
