i have been slowly appliqueing these old dresden plates to a white backing. i bought them a year or so ago. I know that i just want the plates on the quilt top with just a colorful, small print binding on the edge. no other color.
but, i can't decide if i want to hand quilt each square individually then sew together for a quilt top, and finally tie it all together.
or, do i want to sew my top together and hand quilt it as a whole unit with backing included. i feel i'd work on it more consistently if they were individual squares. easy to take somewhere as opposed to sitting with a large quilt in from of me.
but then, there's the whole tied quilt thing. it's not my favorite way for a quilt to go together. i've made one. i like it, but...oh, i'm just not sure.
what do you think?
