Dress Me Up - finished quilt top

I feel as though a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders now that my Dress Me Up embroideries have come together in a quilt top. It's just over twelve months since I started the first dress.

The ladies in the fabric diamonds came from a piece of Springtime in Paris by Michael Miller.





My photography leaves a lot to be desired, but I think you can get the general idea of how it looks.  It measures 55" by 64".

  5. I've seen this quilt top 'in the flesh' and must say that Diamant's fabric choices are beautiful - they complement her embroidered dresses perfectly.

  7. Thanks for the lovely comments. The dress embroideries came from Dress Me Up from the Bobby Socks Quilt Company at http://bobbysocksqc.com/ but the layout is my own idea.

    Time now to start the hand-quilting.
