Very fast and dirty , I'm afraid. I seriously haven't done much quilting this week.
That's because of this:
For Halloween, my friend Jenn is holding a Halloween party as the American among Australians. And this was the pattern for my costume - Simplicity 2172 - a 'Victorian-style' outfit, with elements of steampunk. It's a calico to test the pattern (hence the different sleeves) - and it's just as well that I made a calico first, because I picked the wrong size for the outfit. (Note to self: US size 12 ≠ AUS size 12.)
I don't know if it'll be my costume for Halloween, because I'll be away from home Friday through till next Thursday, and I have to make a coat and the skirt in the 'real' fabric, and I just don't think I'll have time.
It's still a WIP. And it's still Wednesday. It counts!
Actual Quilting-y Things Done This Week
Dead Simple QAL
I sewed together the top for the Dead Simple QAL.
Isn't it pretty? I have to say: I often question the colour choices I make when putting quilts together. Somehow, though, they usually turn out okay! It's a mystery - a good one, but still a mystery!
After months and months of toil, the Sanctuary Kaleidoscope is in the final stages of binding and will be gifted on Sunday. The recipient claims she loves orange, brown, and pink; I hope she's not just being nice!
Photos will follow when it's done.
