Thanks Mrs Price!

Well, I will need to place the full blame on B's Prep teacher for this one. She came on a home visit and had the most lovely fabric that she had made into a handbag. I had plans for this dress quilt made of all these pastels BUT I had to have her fabric. It was going to be the border of this quilt and basically the rest of it was designed around it.

Add to that, the visit to the Job Warehouse and the amazing vintage trims and this is what you get:


All the dresses have lace or buttons or ribbon. The handbags and shoes the same. I will post close ups of things when it has been quilted. So Raelene - this one is for you!

Just stunning! I love the way you've used the fabrics. This deserves quilting immediately, so it can hang on your wall to admire! Put that 'book' aside for just a while.

I love this one! Might have to try something like it myself. It's very creative and would look fantastic on a sewing room wall. You have done a fantastic job - can't wait to see the close ups!
