Jamie Dress for a friend

This was the first time I made a garment for someone else. A very good friend from Germany visited me for three weeks in the summer and for her birthday I made her this dress. It was quite easy, since she fit exactly in my size :)

We went to JoAnn's and she picked this poly-satin. The only changes I made was to lengthen the bodice by 1 inch.

The construction was very forward. Which totally reminds me that I haven't blogged yet about my Jamie dress. Well, I guess it will be done in another post.

Right now I like to listen to this song. It helps me getting my awesome back.


Current project: Quilting

My latest project is a quilt which I am quilting myself. I pieced five quilts so far, but never quilted them. I always gave them away to a local long-arm quilter. 
Here is a little sneak peak at the current quilt. I am quilting circles.

 These are the five quilts I pieced, gave away for quilting, and put the binding on myself. 

This first one is Sanctuary in Oasis Quilt by Patricia Bravo. I kept this one for myself.

Unfortunately I only have pictures of these two quilts of the finished top. Before the quilting was done. 

This was a wedding present for a good friend in Germany.

The other two quilts are Baby Quilts, also presents. The firs one I blogged about here.
A gift for my youngest nephew Ben.

And a gift for the baby of a friend in Germany.
