Family Quilts — Pink Dresden/Wagon Wheel Baby

Oh. My. Gosh. This one is just so dang cute!

Great Grandma's Pink Dresden Baby Quilt

This is a hand pieced and hand quilted baby quilt made by my Great Grandma Roloff. This is a basic Dresden Plate pattern with smooth edges for each plate (note: someone posted on the flickr photo to indicate that these are “Wagon Wheels”). Most of the plates have a particular pattern to them, but some, especially in the bottom row, are completely random. There are no borders. The quilt is backed with solid white and bound in a lighter shade of pink. The quilting is concentric circles.

We have no idea what baby this was for. 🙂 I’m just going to let you enjoy the close-up views without my chatter. I encourage you to click on the photos to go over to Flickr and see the large sizes where you can really see the details on the fabrics. I just can’t say enough about how adorable I think this one is! All these tiny little plates!
