A few projects that I've been working on. I received a new quilting book the other day in the mail called Fresh Quilting by Malka Dubrawsky and I cannot put it down. I already completed one of the easier projects, quilted potholders and now I'm about to try my hand at a full blown queen-sized quilt.
I've never sewn a full sized quilt before but I've done a few smaller quilting projects, each slightly modified to make them not a real traditional quilt. I really don't have any interest in traditional hand quilting but rather modified and modern quilting. [Or quilting with the sewing machine aka cheating] but hey, I've never felt so pumped for fabric! I ended up going to Britex on a rainy day and picked out some of the Japanese fabrics I've been coveting.
Over the weekend I put together a dress from fabric I had stashed since living in Rochester. I'm just about done, just waiting to see where I'd like the hemline to fall. I really like that I put effort into the dress and added the proper edge stitching and interfacing. I played around with the collar line too and added a simple drape on the sleeve. A perfect Easter-like dress.
