Thursday Things...

I received one of my quilts in the mail this week and have just finished binding it! Here is the "All Dressed Up" quilt (pattern by Nanette). This quilt is so bright and cheery with its combination of new reproductions from my stash and vintage fabrics from Nanette. Now I get to have some fun adding buttons and other trims to the dresses!

Vivian did a terrific job with the long-arm quilting...

I absolutely love the swirls quilted in the background of the dress blocks. And I have another quilt that I'll be binding soon...Judi of Green Fairy Quilts just finished the quilting on my garden row quilt...you can see it here!
It was fun reading all of the giveaway comments--so many of you loved Tiffany's great bag patterns. I used Random.org to draw the winner, and Rae Ann's lucky number came up--congratulations Rae Ann!


Be back soon!

oh oh ! I love it! the dresses look so cute all puffed up... i can't wait to see it embellished. the quilting looks awesome...I like that swirly design. I've been wanting to make this quilt for awhile....this is just the incentive I need!

Cindy said...

All I can say is WOW at the quilting over at Green Fairy. What a beauty. I often wondered if quilters used more than one color on their quilting and I read that Judi used three colors on your row quilt.

Oh my goodness, you're going to have so much fun playing "dress up"..LOL It'll be like playing dolls again as you decide how to embellish each dress.

Sherri, you truly are a quilting expert. Just beauties!

Jackie said...

Two very beautiful quilts!! I just love Nanette's pattern too. The 30s are just way too cute!

Terriaw said...

What a pretty dress quilt! I love how the quilting really makes those dresses pop off the quilt top. It's going to look even more adorable when you add buttons. Even the bows add so much charm!

Joanne said...

Great quilts! I love the fabric for both of them, I am a fan of vintage and batik fabrics.

Cara said...
