Kristen at So Happy hosted the Dresden Plate Party which inspired the Dresden Plate that P. gave to me. Now Kristen is hosting a giveaway. She's giving away lots of cool stuff, so don't hesitate to check it out. Maybe you'll be her next winner!
Secondly, several quilters commented on how much they liked the ribbon border in the Dresden Plate wall-hanging mock up I presented in A Quilty 4th of July Lift Off. It had been my intention to mention the source of the ribbon border in that blog, but I was so excited to show off my plans for P.'s Dresden Plate, that I forgot it. So I'm making amends now. The source is Quilter's Cache, Borders. The directions on how to make the ribbon border are there along with directions for over a dozen other borders. It's a wonderful resource, and I plan on using it again.
