UFO #5 -- Just For Me!

I started this little quilt years and years and years ago.  It was a kit from Pinwheels using Daiwabo taupe fabrics.  Swoon!

I English Paper Pieces the mini Dresden plates and then appliqued them to the block.  I finished the handwork around Christmas but then had to quilt my little top.

This quilt is only 17x21 inches!

I used matching thread to quilt feathers in the border:

I used contrasting threads to quilt the arcs in teh centers.  You probably can't see the matching micro-micro-micro quilting all around the arcs and plates:

I love Love LOVE this little quilt!  I told the folks at Pinwheels if they offered this as a kit again that people would want to buy it.  Am I right?

I love this quilt! I never thought I'd like taupe fabrics on a dark background, but I do! I love taupe, I have several books on taupe quilts. This is just a fabulous idea, thank you!
