100 Blocks Blog Tour!

Hello All!  I was so excited to be asked by the great people at Quiltmaker magazine to submit a block for their fabulous 100 Blocks collectors edition magazine. And here's my block!

 I decided to do a Little Laundry with one of my dimensional dresses hanging on the line.
This block was of course inspired by my Laundry Day quilt. 


 Just like the piles of laundry in my laundry room, this quilt may seem a bit intimidating.  But why not take it one small batch at a time, like this darling dress and see how good it feels.


Here I chose to simply my laundry even more and simply applique the dress dress using fabrics from the new Ruby fabric line.  I finished the appliqued piece framed in a charming 8x10 frame with a matt of jumbo white ric rack.


I hope you enjoy my Little Laundry block.  Now to the good stuff!!!

Leave a comment for a chance to win one of my giveaways! 

 I will be giving away a charm pack of my favorite Ruby fabric, the 100 Block collectors edition magazine provided by Quiltmaker, and a copy of my book Laundry Day. 

Thank's for stopping by and happy hopping!!

  21. Your adorable laundry day quilt and sweet block reminds me that I never had the chance to make sweetie pie dresses for a little girl. I had 2 sweetie pie boys but they just didn't want to wear dresses!!! LOL :-) Anyway they are grown now and married and I am hoping for a granddaughter to sew for but until then your little girl dresses on that clothes line may just might do the trick to hold me over until then. Hope I win.
    PS. The ruby fabric is to die for I LOVE RED!!!!
