Dresden Plate Quilts

Amy's Creative Side is having a blogger's quilt show. Here are our quilts that we'd like to share.
In 2005 all three of us sisters entered a contest put on by MAQS called:  Dresden Plate: New Quilts from an Old Favorite.
What a treat it was for all three of our quilts to be accepted and become a part of the show for the following two years.

Julia's "A Plate of Pineapples" won fourth place.

Polly's  "The Dazzling Dresden Doodle" won fifth place.

Barbara's "Dresden Fanfare" was a finalist.
Our quilts were shown in the American Quilter's Society Museum for a couple months and then traveled with a group of 15 other quilts to various shows, guilds and museums.
We three Mennonite sister's felt so honored and blessed.

I saw these quilts in Paducah and loved the different interpretations of the Dresden you all came up with. Such beautiful quilts - I'm partial to the Plate of Pineapples since I love yellow and Pineapple blocks - thanks for sharing! You are a very talented group of quilters!

They are all wonderful. My mom and I have been working on similar projects and find it very helpful to have each other to bounce ideas off. We also surprise each other with challenging fabrics.
