Dress Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The choice of fabrics and the layout. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The quilt was very simple to put together once I decided what to put where and which fabrics made sense. Drafting a pattern was kinda fun. I had this professionally quilted by Maria O'Haver of http://www.mariaohaver.com/. All I can say is that she is truly an artist. I am thrilled with her work and recommend her highly.

Q&A with SummerK

Toby2020 asked:
Its beautiful, where did you buy such pretty fabric?
SummerK answered:
ebay. But the dress one is made by SPX. However, I think it is so old that it's not even on their site anymore. The french/20s one I have seen at my local quilt shop. I'll get a name for you next time I'm there.

The perfect gift! How wonderful. Great job on mixing the pieces. I enjoy doing that also, especially if there might be one or two I'm not crazy about, moving to another spot sometimes improves them. I recently split up a panel of "The Hungry Catepillar" and liked it so much better with some softer colors added. Love the colors in yours and I vaguely remember seeing the print and wanting it for myself.......good for you.
SummerK answered:
oh i LOVE that book! I think that the fabric is cute but never had a good idea of how to use it.
