My mother and I made this lovely dress for the Renaissance wedding I went to yesterday at the Georgia Renaissance Festival. It was made from Simplicity pattern 4488 with a few alterations here and there. I may use some of the left over fabric to make a bodice to either sell or have for a future trip to the Faire.

This is a small quilted wall hanging (15 inches square) with foundation pieced hearts set in an alternating pattern with simple 9-patch blocks and surrounded by 3 borders. It is machine pieced and hand quilted. I made it as a wedding gift for a friend of mine from college who is getting married next weekend. It is a Renaissance wedding. My mom and I are currently working on a costume for me to wear to the wedding; it should be fun. I'll post a pic of the dress when it is all finished too.

Okay, so I didn't really seal it, but I did wrap it (if a gift bag counts as wrapping). I gave the quilt (pictured in the post below) to my friend Alicia today. She was very pleased and surprised. She had no idea I was making a quilt for her. I hope that baby Trey gets many years of use out of it.

I just finished this one today. It is made from the Warm Wishes pattern published in Quiltmaker magazine's Nov/Dec 2003 issue. It is machine pieced and machine quilted. It is a very simple pattern that sews together very quickly. I made this one for a friend of mine who had a baby boy back in September. I know, I'm running late finishing it, but I had two baby quilts to make at the same time and I was trying to finish up graduate school all at the same time. Better late than never, right?

It is small (only 18 inches square), but I'm pleased with it. It was my first attempt at doing Cathedral Windows and I was just figuring it out from some directions I found on-line. It took some trial and error, but I think it worked out okay.
