My Renaissance Costume

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.

A Wedding Gift

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.
