Halloween Quilting Project


This is a quilted table or bed runner.
(It is folded in half)


This is a closer view which shows some of my 'first' hand quilting.
It's much harder than it looks. 
It also aggravates the ole carpal tunnel syndrome. 


This is the back, so it can be reversed after Halloween.


and the pillowcase to match for my niece, Leah
who has an October birthday....
and (I found out later) a lime-green bedroom
so this matches perfectly.

An Heirloom Style Dress


I made this heirloom quality dress 
as a shop sample for the Kid's Closet in Auburn.


The bodice has Swiss embroidery & lace insertion
and 3 tiny pintucks on each side.


Here is a closeup of the sleeve with 
Swiss beading, ribbon and lace edging.


This is the hemline with the same Swiss embroidery,
lace insertion, pintucks and lace edging.
