Going to a Party

Low, Rachel C&T Publishing ePub

Do you love to go to a party? I know I do! Whenever I receive a party invitation, one of the first things I ask is: What am I going to wear? Then, to decide, I ask myself some other questions: What kind of party is it? Is there a theme? What time of year is it? With this information I get excited and start to envision all the possible looks I could put together. Lucky for us, we are all learning how to make our own clothes and accessories so we can design our own party outfit. How fun!

In this section you will make the essential party must-haves: a festive dress, a party purse, shoe clips, and the perfect party hair accessory—a glitter headband. Using your imagination you can style each piece to reflect your personality.

WHAT YOU NEED

1¼–2 yards of light- to medium-weight fabric (Check your size in How Much Fabric to Buy.)

Wool felt: sheets or scraps at least 9˝ × 12˝

½ yard of ribbon, ¼˝–⅝˝ wide

Framed in Starlight

M'Liss Rae Hawley C&T Publishing PDF

On clear nights, while working late in my studio, I often go out on my deck to enjoy the Milky Way, the moon, the planets, and—when I am especially lucky—shooting stars. I created the

Framed in Starlight pattern as the perfect combination of earthbound and heavenly images: sixteen Log Cabin blocks surrounded by twenty Shooting Star blocks.

This is a fun quilt! I used the color wheel and batik fabrics to create the illusion of starlight and movement.

Fat quarters require 171⁄2˝ × 20˝ of usable fabric. All other yardages are based on 40˝-wide fabric.

and 1 dark) each of yellow, orange, red, purple, blue, and green fabric for blocks

■ Additional fat quarter of the dark yellow fabric for Log

Cabin center squares

■ 1⁄2 yard of fabric for hanging sleeve
