Some Finishes

A nice sunny Sunday in my little Minnesota town and a chance to finish up a couple of projects.

I finished the christening gown.  The first picture is a view of the front and the second is a view of the back.  

 This is what the wedding dress looked like. 

 Phew!  I'm glad that's done.  I still have to make a bonnet but that shouldn't take long.

The other project I finished was the Easter doll quilt.  

 I asked whether I should put flowers in the baskets and the responses were about 50-50.  In the end, I decided to quilt the flowers in the baskets.
 I kept the quilting simple.  Basically, I stitched in the ditch and outlined around the applique border.
 Busy week ahead.  We have a wake and funeral to attend for one thing.  I hope to get one of the scrap quilts basted and ready to quilt.  The temps are suppose to get warmer.  I feel so bad for the folks in Indiana and Kentucky that were struck by tornadoes.  Very sad.  They are in my prayers.  

Have a happy day, everyone.
