A giveaway. For a whole Flower Sugar fat quarter bundle!

That's right!  One fat quarter of every piece of Flower Sugar 2 (that's 21 fat quarters in all).  We LOVE this collection.  It definitely ranks high on our favorite-ever fabric list.  Bright and cheerful!  This bundle is enough fabric to make an entire quilt top.  So...  check out the Long Ladies on their blog Marie-Madeline Studio to take part in this giveaway!  They have the most lovely fabric!

Matilda Jane has a lovely little dress they call Ringmaster Ellie.  I decided to make a variation of this cute dress.  I used almost all the same fabrics, by Anna Griffon from her Riley line, and then found a piece of Feelin Groovy by Rosemarie Lavin for Windham.  So, for my dress, the bodice is Packed Flowers in green from Feelin Groovy and the ties, ruffle, and skirt are all from Riley.  I love this circus print so much I am trying to find more of it!   I bought what I have from Treasure Bay on Etsy.  (see side bar for link)

So, here it is!  My Ringmaster Eliza, for my little girl.  

Here are closeups of the pretty fabrics.

And, no, my serger is STILL not working.   So, all these seams had to be bound somehow.  Argh is the only word for that.  Serger goes to shop in about an hour.  

Just for kicks, here is my inspiration. the Ringmaster Ellie by Matilda Jane.  I did pretty good, huh?
