Friday Finishes Craftsy BOM Circa 2012

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts 
In truth, this quilt was off the longarm on Wednesday before we took the red-eye to Boston, but yesterday was very busy and anyway I was in serious sleep deprivation.
Today was well occupied so now here we are Friday, late- late and I am trying to get this posted before I go catch up on my ZZZZZZ's, tomorrow is already planned!
The four corner blocks are Dresden Plates, I had so much fun making those I got carried way, and there are a few left over that could make place mats or table runner. 
 My version of the Craftsy BOM from last year is all batiks and apart from the four corner blocks, are all quilted differently according to the individual block design.
 The thread is a trilobal, "Art Studio Colors' from Superior in a gold, love the way that thread sews on the LA, I can sew as fast as I like, pedal to the metal if I want & it holds up to the "abuse"!
 Some blocks took a bit of thought before I came up with a design,
while others seemed to speak to me right away!
There is a little simple ruler work in the Dresden Plates, I haven't found a better way to quilt those yet. If you click on the pics you can get a closer look at the quilting detail.

I love the square on the right in the 4th photo. I would have a whole quilt done in that square.
Why so tired?? Is the boy wearing you out?
Take care of yourself.

Beautiful. I love the Dresden. I think it was one of my Grandmothers favorite patterns. She had several.
Enjoy Boston.
