First, below is a picture of my current quilt project. I started this quilt about 2 years ago, but I keep laying it aside for other, more pertinent, projects like an anniversary quilt and a wedding quilt. Since it is a double wedding ring quilt, it really needs to be quilted in a circular pattern, and as I wasn't keen on maneuvering the thick, queen-sized bat through my machine in a curvy fashion, I opted to hand quilt it. I borrowed the frame from a friend, and it has proved very helpful so far! This picture was taken at my grandparents' house last week, and that's the Ohio River behind me :).
Second, here is a picture of the dress I recently mentioned. Ashley treated me to some fabric shopping for my birthday way back in early April, and I'm just now finishing the dress made with the fabric I bought. *guilty look* I really like the result. Ashley, Mother Dear, and Sister Dear convinced me to splurge and buy some non-cotton fabric for a dress - out of the ordinary for me, since I'm usually a cotton girl. It's kind of hard to see from the photo, but the fabric has roses all over it with slighly different threads, to give it a pretty, textured look.
