A New Finish and a New Challenge

I'm gearing up to sew my first garment! I think I'm going with the Socialite Dress but I also have the pattern for the Schoolhouse Tunic. Thoughts?

I picked up some muslin to try something out before I hack into something gorgeous!

I also finished a quick little baby quilt:

It's shipping off to a brand new baby in Massachusetts. This green and gray combo is still growing strong with new moms. The size is 36"x48".

Rainbow Wheel

I posted an almost-finished picture of this quilt on Instagram (I'm paperstarfish) and it got a good amount of love.

Honestly, this quilt gave me "problems" from day one and if it wasn't a commissioned piece, it would have been abandoned long ago. I'm glad I stuck with it though because it taught me a lot.

It measures 48" square and contains several of my favorite prints including that meteor shower print by Tula Pink. I used this pattern by Stitched in Color and modified it a bit to work out the way I wanted. Great, clear pattern. The problems came from me and my modifications!
