Project

Monday Wash Day

What are you most proud of? I actually got the third prize for this and its on display in the Quilting store right now!!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Making those tiny clothes by hand was a real pain!!!And using invisible thread to stitch the dowel sticks was also a pain.I realized that the invisible thread is truly invisible!!!I was going for the 3 D effect.So it was worth it in the end!!!!The whole quilt measures about 28inches x 32 inches if I remember right!!!

This is lovely - when I first saw it with all that plaid, I thought you must surely come from Scotland! It's cute and whimsical and I think the dedication to your hard-working sister is so right!
