Dresden Plate quilt

I love the look of white on white quilting- white thread, white fabric.... the texture of the quilting really stands out.  Here is a great example of this, with these pictures of a Dresden Plate quilt that I quilted lately. 

I did the crosshatching with the Intelliquilter, and the feathers are freehand.  The blades of the plates are stitched down using clear monofilament thread using a tiny serpentine stitch.  I didn't want to take away from the fabrics in the plates.
