Progress on my Maple Leaf Rag quilt has been pretty minimal this week due to upcoming dance performances and festivals.
My daughter is dancing the Cake Walk on Saturday at Robbie Burns Night. So in the last week, I've made a circle skirt, a pair of short pants and a vest. I upcycled my old Highland costume from when I was a kid to make the skirt and vest. And I used a cute dark blue corduroy for the pants. Please cross your fingers that they will all fit. I only have 5 days until the big show! (I think I'm more nervous about the costumes than my daughter is about the dancing). I used these tutorials for the skirt (I used a band rather than an elastic waist), Burda 2622 for the vest, and McCalls M6143 for the pants. However, since making the skirt, I found this great tutorial on Sew Pony, and I would use it next time.
I did manage to get a couple of webs done.
But realistically, I doubt I'll get the quilt top done this month. And I think I'm okay with that. It has been so long in the making, I'd rather not rush it at the very end just to get it done.
Thanks for all of the encouraging comments on my last post, and I am so sorry I didn't get a chance to reply. Please know that I love all of your comments, and my goal this year is to be a better communicator. So that means responding to comments too. I am a work in progress.
Anyone else making costumes?
I'm linking up.
