Happy Birthday Mom! I hope it remains sunny and gets a little warmer. We've enjoyed several sunny, if brisk, November days this past week. A few posts ago, my mom requested a dresden plate challah cover for her birthday, and I obliged with this sunny one. Her favorite color is yellow, so I knew I would use yellow in it somewhere.
On the back, I combined some of the pebbles from the front with another Anna Maria Horner print, the leaves from her Garden Party line. On the right, if you squint hard enough, you can see the outline of the dresden plate from the front. This time, I decided to make the applique of the plate part of the quilting process, so the back mirrors the front, with both the dresden plate and the parallel horizontal lines. I gave this to my mom a couple days early, on Friday, so we could use it Friday night.
