Dresden plate quilt

A three-year-project finally finished, before the end of 2014. After so many hand quilting stitches, I accept I really miss working on it. I am planning another long-term quilting project, just to have something around to whine about.This is going to be the first quilt I will keep for our family! My only problem is that I have to wash it somehow in order to use it, and I have to wait until summertime, or else I will ruin it with such humid weather.

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
