Here's a picture after I machine appliqued the circles over the open part of the dresden blades.
Here's what the blocks look like before the applique.
I got all the circles appliqued yesterday. Today I'll sew on the borders and next week I'll take it to the long arm to quilt. I'm still practicing on the long arm at my local quilt shop. I don't think I'll ever win any prizes but at least I'll get these lonely, long-ago tops out of the drawers and onto the foot of some bed.
