Last two squares and one of the dresses

Here are the last two squares of the folk art quilt. I can't wait to sew it together. I am going to change the sashings a bit and the border as the pattern is a bit plain.

I have finshed two of the bridesmaids dresses and finally the other two came for fitting today. Here's a picture of the dress. Not very good pic but don't have a mannequin to show off a strappless dress. The leopard belt has tucks and the bodice ad skirt also has a few tucks. Very hard to see with the black. I hate working with black! LOL

Internet woes and new stuff

I have been having tons of trouble connecting to the Internet. Not really sure what it is as it works intermittenly like now. Any who I think it is good enough to upload piccies of what I have been doing.

Two of the girls came for a fitting for the bridemaids dresses I am making. Only a few modifications so I am happy and can now cut into the actual dress fabric as patterns are set.

While waiting on the girls I have been making some fusible applique blocks from a kit a friend gave me.
This is a close up of one of the blocks. I fused the pieces to the background and used variegated thread and stitched around each applique piece with a machine buttonhole stitch. I have made 4 more blocks since this picture. I will try and get more pictures tomorrow.
Here is a doll I made for my secret sister reveal. She collects sunflower stuff so I made a sunflower doll. If I make a doll any sooner than the reveal they would know who their secret sister was!
