Back in the saddle again

I have been down this week with a cold/sinus infection/sinus pressure migraine. [ugh!]  Now that I am feeling better [though still snotty] I can get back to sewing and cleaning house.

I finished this quilt up at the end of January.  [That makes two quilts in January for those keeping score at home :)]  I used a pattern called Sugar Dish and used a jelly roll of Just Wing It.  I especially love those Dresden Plates in the middle.  This pattern had me applique-ing for the first time and it went pretty darn well.

I straight line quilted it using a lattice crosshatch pattern at the top and bottom.  I am still deciding if I want to go back and hand quilt an echo pattern around the Dresden Plates.  That would require me getting off my butt and actually doing it though!

For the back I used up some fabric from my stash that I have always rather liked but I don't remember who made it, though I think Westminster may be the manufacturer.
