Craftsy 2013 Block of the Month Done!

I participated in the Craftsy 2013 Block of the Month program and loved it!  I worked with blues, yellows and greens and a tone on tone white fabric and I am very happy with the result

Also this is the first larger quilt that I quilted myself on my Aunt Bonnie's long arm quilt machine

I got a little courageous and did a loopy loopy in the two outside borders

Then I did a special design inside the Dresden Plate block. This is actually my second attempt. The first time I tried outlining the pieces and found it very hard to quilt a straight line.  Then I spent 45 minutes pulling out the errant stitches and deciding to do the squirly design instead

Thanks to Craftsy and Laura Nownes the designer and teacher. I learned a lot working on this quilt and hope that they have a 2014 program
