All Dressed Up

 Here we are at the end of the bee.  The quilt didn't quite get finished, but almost.  There was just a border left and a few diagonal stripes.

The quilt is called "All Dressed Up" and is a pattern by Jan Mullen of Stargazey Quilts and is called "Dressez." It's a crazy piece kind of construction where you design as you go.  Each dress is individually designed.  Alyssa picked colors and dress style to reflect each member of the bee.  There is one "hula skirt" in there as well with fringed fabric to mimic a grass skirt. The dresses are posed an a mannequin or dress stand.

At the bee we each decorated our dress with buttons and beads and floss.  That was very fun.

I think that Alyssa did an amazing job for her first finished quilt.  I can't wait to see it all finished up!
