The theme is Hi, it's Me! so I've been working on Dresden Plates because of the circular nature of life. I wanted to start out with larger ones and work towards smaller ones, all with things that represent who I am.
My husband helped me come up with the center idea of putting my silhouette in the center and as the Dresdens go from larger to smaller have a piece of the silhouette covered up.
So, let me share a bit of what each Dresden represents.
Pink and Purple - my DD's favorite colors and represents me as a woman.
Blue and Anchors - my Dad used to be a commercial fisherman, I grew up at the NJ shore and had a boat before I had a car.
England and Red Paisley - my love of travel, DH is from England originally and I was in Puerto Rico studying Spanish.
Coffee Beans and Blues and Browns - One of the things I love, coffee. The blues and browns represent my love of Mother Earth and Nature.
Pencils and Cream Crosses - My profession as a teacher and my faith.
American Patriotic - I'm American, part Native American, and where a lot of my roots are.
I'm not showing off the final outcome with the quilting.. but I will share that it's bound in dark green. :)
