Gee, was I wrong about the Dresden Plate And my WIP for February

During the dare to Dresden Blog hop I seen so many great Quilt blocks and Quilts done with the Dresden Plate. I never cared for this block in the Traditional way. But this Blog hop open my eyes to a total different block. Well and when I was locking around I wanted to try it out.
I found a nice pattern at Erin Russek's blog and went for it.
I dived into my Scrap boxes and really enjoyed it.
I did not use the English paper piecing method she did. I just used the machine to piece and I appliqued it the same way I did in the summer at mom's Quilt. 
As for my WIP for February - my friends daughter is turning 20 next month and I decided it was time for a new Quilt for her.
She just had her room painted in a lime green color. "wow" I thought, its a bright color but it looks good.
So I went ahead and got some fabric. I decided on HST's.
And here is a picture from the fabric. 
So I be off to my sewing room
I hope you all have a great weekend
