I found these squares already made up, in some of my Grandma's stuff. I believe it is a modified dresden plate, and might be one that grandma made up on her own. Each piece was sewn together by hand. I began with the squares and went from there.
Here's the whole quilt. I put it together and paid someone else to quilt it. I had a hard time trying to decide what colors to use. The orange is SO bright, and I am SO not an orange fan, but I used the green and orange borders, with a pale peach to tone down the squares. I love the way it turned out.
This quilt rack holds my red/navy snowman quilt purchased from Penneys on clearance a few years back, the yellow double wedding ring quilt made by my Grandma Alley for our wedding gift in 1972, the small one on the left front is my son's baby quilt also made by my Grandma Alley, and the front one on the right is my baby quilt ALSO made by Grandma Alley.
And my double knit quilt made by my mother in law. You know how double knit NEVER wears out!!!
And last, but not least there is my t-shirt quilt that was my Metamorphosis Monday post this week.
