“Dresden Flowers” - PTQG’s 2017 Raffle Quilt
“Dresden Saucers” is a 94” by 94” hand appliquéd and hand pieced quilt made by Linda Throckmorton, Cutler, Maine, with 180 Dresden Saucers and many red penny sized yoyos surrounding a center filled with red roses and green leaves. Each section of the Dresden Saucer is different (1440 pieces) and from fabric before 1993. Linda started this quilt in 2007 and finished this year. Betty Bell, Hope Chest Quilting, Auburn, Maine, custom quilted it with her Gammill long arm. The center has free hand swirls. There is a fleur-de-lis motif within each Dresden Saucer. The borders are quilted with a cathedral windows design. It is truly a wonderful 40th Anniversary quilt and an heirloom for anyone to own.
