After returning from a trip to the east coast I felt inspired to make a quilt using plaids which is something I haven't done in a very long time. I looked at several more traditional patterns and just couldn't get excited about anything that I saw. I did, however, like the look of Geta Grama's modern dresden plate pattern that was popular about a year ago. I also got a lot of inspiration and information from Cindy Lammon at Hyacinth Quilt Designs. I gathered all my plaid scraps and a large box of plaids that I was gifted from my Aunt Beryl. I didn't have a store bought ruler so I made my own out of cardboard.

|Circles squared off . Trying out different ideas for the area between the circles.|
|Getting ready to baste. I had just enough room. At 112" x 100" it is huge.|
