The Great Pattern Hack - Anna Blouse to Dress

Happy Summer to you!
Yes, that is my Anna Blouse Pattern pictured above!

Kait Witte of Making it Fun took my Anna Blouse and made it into a dress!

I just love how it turned out.  She used Michael Miller Clip dot for the bodice (basically a swiss dot)
and Michael Miller's Glitz Gardent for the skirt.  I love the contrast red binding on the bodice.  The dress is so fun and summery.

I may just have to make one for myself!
You can find the Anna Blouse pattern [HERE]

~ pinwheels, strawberries and lemon slices ~ oh my ~ Work in Progress Wednesday

Happy Wednesday.  I have been working on lots of projects.  My Sweetheart Pattern is top priority now that I have a secret project for Sew News complete : )  The Sew News project will be in the Spring '16 issue that hits news stands in December.  Hint - you carry it and it is sparkly : )

I have been working on bee blocks for the Cocorico Traveling Bee.  I made a few more for Melinda's quilt whose them is "Itty Bitty and Bright".  I am trying to add a little more orange to the group - I think I succeeded : )

The lemon is from my Jam Jars and Fruit pattern.  

The strawberry is also from my Jam Jars and Fruit Pattern.

The Pinwheel is from a Stitch magazine project from a few years ago.
I would love an entire quilt made with pinwheels : )

I have also found time to work on My Small World quilt.  It is a fun one to work on but I have a feeling this will be a very long work in progress.  The little pinwheels are just 2" square!

Happy Stitching!
