Friday Update

Here is the costume I made for a friend of my daughter. This friend played Rapunzel, hence the long locks. I was disappointed that I did not have the opportunity to add the ruffle on the bottom.

I got the black and white wonky squares put together. It measures 70" x 84" for now, but I will be adding a pieced border in the next day or two.
I used a tutorial of AmandaJean of Crazy Mom Quilts. It was very easy to make and came together quickly. (I tweaked the pattern a bit...I used 12.5" squares instead of the suggested 10" squares, and I used 15 dark fabrics and 15 light fabrics in order to get it to the size I wanted.) Here is a link to the tutorial:

Love your black and white quilt. Really striking. And I get it was fun to wear that Rapunzel costume.

What a glorious Rapunzel dress, both in style and the delicious fabric color. Well done! Your daughter's friend must have felt like a real princess when wearing it.

Love the wonky black and white quilt, too. Will have to visit that tutorial. Thanks for posting it!

Cheers!
