Dresden's Update...

Isn't she lovely!
I find it so hard to get a good photo of this quilt, the colours are not true, but you can still see how it's going....
Three borders are on, I've only got three Dolly's arms to go, then I'll add the last border and think about the corner blocks...not sure yet what I'll do there...
Here's a closer look...
Have a great weekend...I'm hoping to have the last border on this weekend!
Take care...♥
