The Dress Challenge

In my last post mentioned I needed to name my Fiber art quilt. Well with the help of my friend Joyce, it now has a name. "Fantasy Floral" Yay! So glad to get that out of the way. I'm afraid that my creativity does not lie in writing.

Now, on the next little quilt that I just finished. This one is for another Art Quilt group that I belong too. It will be part of the Northern Star Quilter Guilds' Show in May.This particular challenge is called the dress, Finished size to be 10"x 14". Since, in my previous life I made fashion dolls, I have many books on period clothes. I also have access to old Ladies Home Journal Magazines that belong to the Yorktown Museum. The hardest part of this challenge was to decide which time period to do. I finally settled on the early part of the 20th Century. Everything was done in Photoshop and then printed on fabric. I named it the "Ladies of Fashion" Not exactly the greatest name. But I told you I'm not very good at naming my work.


  1. A great interpretation of the theme. That looks like a silk binding. Is it?

    1. Thanks Norma, Yes it's silk. I wanted to do an earlier dress because I figured everyone else would do dresses from our own time. It would be interesting to see if i'm right in that assumption.

    2. Hi Maxine! It's cool idea and great realization!!

  2. Great website, thanks for putting this together.I want to share Uverse coupon
