This listing is for a 25-inch by 21-inch piece from a vintage quilt in the Dresden Plate pattern. There are four plates, each of which is 9 inches in diameter. The plates are made from a variety of flower and geometric prints, and all have a pale yellow center. There is a pink border along one edge. The last photo shows the entire piece. The quilting is hand stitched at 6 SPI, and the plates are appliqued by hand to the background. The plates appear to have been both hand- and machine-pieced. There is one plate on which the center has come undone but could be repaired (see fourth photo). There is a second plate on which the stitching around the center is loose in one area, which would be a simple repair. Some of the fabrics in three of the plates have very slight wear. The batting is medium weight cotton. The piece is wonderfully soft. As with all my quilt pieces, it has been freshly laundered and comes ready to use. These are very sweet Dresden Plates that could be used for a wide variety of projects, including small pillows. Here is a link to a beautiful pillow in a wonderful color combination, made by one of my customers who is a very talented Etsy seller:http://www.etsy.com/listing/99873203/vintage-chenille-and-dresden-plate-quilt
I do my very best to accurately describe each piece of fabric I sell, but please remember that these are vintage textiles that have been used and will have flaws and blemishes, or they would not be cutters. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am always happy to provide additional information about my items.
