UFO #3

I have finally got around to finishing another UFO.  This dresden plate quilt is done with english paper pieced plates appliqued to a background fabric.  It was put together in a quilt as you go method,which allowed the backing to be different colour blocks and then the binding added.  It is going to my mother-in-law for her birthday this weekend.
