I ran across this set of vintage Dresden plates in a bag of stuff at the thrift shop. Folded into them were the two cardboard templates, one marked with the name 'Ruth Hagin.' I wonder who Ruth was, and why she didn't finish her quilt.
There are 18 blocks, which would work up into a 3 x 4 on-point setting. At this point I'm just turning the edges of the petals and blanket-stitching them down to the backgrounds (an 'interesting' green, hey?). Then centers will need to be added -- not included in the bundle, so I'll have to choose a color -- and then assembly and quilting ...
This will be a long-term handwork project, undertaken mostly as a portable activity that I can take along when we're travelling. But since it's been a UFO for 75 years or so already, I guess there's no hurry :)
