Quilted Dress Outline

The Dolly Dress quilt is thoroughly hand basted and ready for quilting.  DMC #12 ivory perle cotton are the basting threads.


Today I will begin hand quilting the outline of the dresses. The timing for that is perfect as I join others at Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching. I do not know whether to try hoopless quilting or use a frame. Stay tuned for the outcome next Sunday. 

Some may think the dress is applique, however, the quilt is made from a pre-printed panel. The collar, cuffs, button, rick rack and crossbody purse have been hand embellished.

Every February the Pebble Beach PGA golf tournament is held and televised from the Monterey Peninsula. The scenery is awesome and it lifts my winter spirits to see green grass with the California coastline as the background. My stitching will be extra slow while viewing the final round. 



Speaking of February ~ Happy Valentines Day kindred stitchers!
