As FiberObsession commented on my last post, I just wasn't going to be content until I did something to the Dresden centers. I chose this rose/red fabric because it was THE perfect center fabric. And until I dreamed "what if I put a center button and smaller dot" like I was doing on the corners, I thought this 102" quilt was nearly finished. That's me...the consummate dreamer. If it would just end at a dream, life would be easier, or at least faster :-) It's the constant dreaming that makes me a creative quilter. It tests limits and boundaries, and constantly pushes me to consider new and different things. Not entirely bad. Afterall, there's not really a deadline for this quilt.
So, I tested a bunch of the green fabrics for the central buttons. I have decided upon the deep check (2nd picture) for at least half of the larger buttons. I think I have another dark green print I will use for the others.
