I'm incredibly frustrated at the moment, I've decided on the Dresden Plate pattern for my quilt, I've ordered my fabrics and some books, but because of the postal strikes in the UK I have no idea when I'll recieve them.
I have tried to get on with my cross stitch, but I just can't settle to it.
I spent hours surfing in countless patchwork and quilting sites before I finally found the Dresden Plate pattern at Quilt Blocks Galore. I had no idea there were so many different designs, the lovely Marcia Hohn has collected many, many designs together and posted them along with some of her own originals, on her site. Each block comes with a printable template or paper piecing guide and easy to follow instructions. Many of the blocks also have examples of full sized quilts. I found the site to be a huge inspiration and thoroughly enjoyed browsing it's many pages.
