did you notice it's been a while since i posted about sewing any clothes?
that's cause i haven't sewn many clothes this past year. mostly just quilting.
actually, i did sew a bunch of halloween costumes...
anyway, i found this shirt on clearance at the gap a while ago.
i think i paid $6.99
i knew it wasn't something my husband would ever wear, but i loved the plaid
so... i started cutting into it, and came up with a dress for my girl.
jeggings: the children's place
this quilt just makes me happy to look at. so do the polka dots. but then, i have a thing for polka dots. :)
are you sick of hearing about this quilt? haha! i think i have now been talking about it for 2 maybe 3 years? i completely fell in love with the pattern when the first material obsession book came out and it was on the cover. anyway, i don't usually take pictures of just quilt tops. but this one needed to be taken. i started this quilt last summer and it was a killer. each dresden piece was cut by hand, sewn together by machine, then hand appliqued to the quilt. after i stitched all flowers to the the blocks, i sewed the blocks together, then hand appliqued the circles between the flowers to the quilt. yep. a killer. and i'm only done with the top. i think i might have someone professionally quilt it for me. it's huge.
so don't worry, this quilt will be making it's way back to my little blog when it's completely finished...someday...
i started quilting this quilt yesterday.
i am so excited to finish it!
it's definitely a new favorite.
i'm also planning to work on a shop update next week.
my little etsy shop has been taking a new direction in my head
and i'm excited to share!
hope you'll check back!
