When I found a gorgeous, Dresden Plate pattern quilt top at my local thrift store a month ago, I knew immediately that it was destined to become Easter wear for the girls. I’m not sure the age of the quilt, but the fabrics are from the 30’s & 40’s and it was completely hand sewn. The time it must have taken astounds me.
I went with an easy, pull on, paper bag waist.
I had a piece of the most perfect shade of yellow linen for the sashes.
The scalloped edge of the quilt made a perfect skirt hem.
And I still have a bunch of quilt top scraps just waiting to be used. Hmmmm.
