20th finish of 2014 - hip to be square flannel quilt

Yeah! I got the flannel quilt done!

This is all the thread I had left on the second spool of Connecting Threads Essential Olive. It's a good thing I decided to reduce the size of this quilt by one row in the length and width!

I won some more fabric! The giveaway fabric came from a place called Massdrop. There are 14 FQ and the solid yellow is a 3/4 of a yard. They also included two spools of Aurifil thread. There are some interesting prints in this group of fabrics.

I also got these two little girl dresses made. I used a pattern that was in a Japanese sewing book I borrowed from the library. I changed the pattern a bit by making the neckline round instead of square, I faced the top part of the dress, made the sleeves a bit longer, and I added a zipper. I sure hope they fit! The one little girl loves unicorns so I used that crazy unicorn fabric I won several months ago for the one dress and the other girl loves orange. Stupid me I cut the orange dress too short, but I found one leftover strip of striped binding in the perfect shade of orange so I added that to the bottom.

My Xmas sewing is done so now I need to get the kitchen cleaned up for pie baking on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

Well done! I love the flannel quilt and I can't believe that you also made 2 dresses! I hope you will relax this week.

Wow! Those dresses are great! I made most of Carries clothes until she got old enough to say, I hate home made clothes. What she doesn't know is that I just went to the second hand store and got her clothes!
