Saturday Summary

Well, it's been another busy week here!  I managed to complete and deliver a custom order quilt made from baby clothes, worked on a peacock wedding gown, and completed a few other random sewing projects!

The baby quilt came out great, but my pictures were definitely lacking.
The color palette was so sweet, pink, gray and mint green.  It was challenging finding some fabrics to go with it, but I did!  The pink and gray chevron was used for the back as well as the border.

It was so much fun to actually be able to deliver it in person!  Ella was visiting Coos Bay and came up to pick up her quilt this morning.  She said it was beyond her expectations, which delighted me, I hope to be able to make more quilts for her in the future!

Here is a picture of the "peacock" wedding dress.  

The colored strips were added to create this fun look!  The tulle was cut in spirals and sewn in straight lines down the skirt, so it wasn't too hard to replicate the spirals  and add the colored tulle in between the rows of white.  

That was an interesting job!  

I also made this monogramed journal cover:
