WIP Wednesday - Gowns Galore!

Haven't had a lot of quality quilting time this week, but I have worked on wedding gowns and prom dresses! One neat project was to add a BIG bow to the back of a wedding gown.  The fabric supplied was a camo, pink organza and ribbon in green and pink!  My friend Google found me a link to some bows I liked, so I got to work and came up with this:

Hopefully she will like what I came up with!  I think it came out really cute, and it will be a fun touch to a themed wedding!

The one quilting project I worked on was to create a journal to give as a door prize for out ladies retreat this weekend.  Of course, Google helped me out on this one, too.  I found a cute free download for an umbrella and used it as my pattern.  I used fusible web and raw edge applique to add the umbrella, then quilted in the word Blessing (I ran out of room for the s on the end....I'm sure it will still be appreciated).  I then quilted swirls in the background and finished it in the usual way.  It came out really cute!
I have three more sets of fabric pulled to make more, so those are on my list to finish up this week.  I have three memory quilts in the works, so hopefully will get to show those next week!

The bow on the gown is lovely! I bet you are glad to get all those dresses out of your sewing room and get back to some quilting....
