Dresden..... Auditioning Corners

The Dollies borders are all on... now I'm auditioning what to do on the corner blocks...

I'm thinking perhaps the end Dollies could be connected with a bow....they could hold a bow, with the tails trailing down....that would join them all up together
or another Dresden plate in the corner...decision's, decisions!....♥

  1. Beautiful quilt. Lovely borders. I like your corner stone ideas, but I'm also wondering how a little baby crib applique might look in the corners.

  5. Well that's going to take some mulling over, I'd have to think that one over too and try different things. No help am I?

  6. Looking great Julia.
    Hard decision on the corner blocks but those end dollies arms do look like they should be holding something.Good luck with your choice.

  14. I like both ideas a lot. How about a Dresden where only some of the fan blades are "color" so that it's a Dresden bow!

  15. What about a dolly on an angle or a swirly ribbon that connects those two hands?

  16. I vote for the bow. It's such a cute idea and really completes the quilt nicely.

    Your quilt is absolutely beautiful. I would like to make one myself.

  18. Your quilt is already so adorable that anything you do will be a great addition. I kind of like the idea of the small bow the best!

  20. Maybe the dollies should hold a big heart in the corners Julia...woould look a bit like an upside down dolliedress..although the big bow is a great idea and will look marvellous too..what ever you decide..it is the most beautyful Dresden quilt i have seen...

  21. Gorgeous quilt Julia. I love it. The first thought that came to me for the corners was a bow. Though I also like the idea of a small plate being held by the dollies.

  22. I like the mini Dresden in the corner! This is going to be a family heirloom - I can tell.

  23. I vote for the bows in the corners, joining the rows of dollies together. This Q is just stunning, Julia.

  24. I love what you have done and love the colours :) Beautiful and I think if I was doing it I would put the bows with the dollies holding them :)

  25. I'm not sure but you sure have taken this Dresden to an entirely otherworld level my friend. So beautiful!!!

  26. I like the bow, but I would add extra loops to the bow to sort of mirror the petals in the Dresden. Great quilt.

  27. Your quilt is beautiful!! What an accomplishment!

  29. Julia,

    I have come back:) My suggestions are - have each lady hold one 'dresden part' (16 different parts have made each dresden), and the two dresden-parts (someone above called them petals, so prolly that is the right word, LOL) can be tied / connected together with a bow.

    Does that look too lame? Pls forgive my lack of quilt vocabulary

  30. This quilt is lovely. One of my favorites is the Dresden pattern and the border is just as nice. I like your idea of the bow, it suits the quilt.
