Mrs. Michelle Obama's Gowns - Quilt blocks


Many thanks to Christine at the Winnowings blog for letting me know she's stitched several potential inaugural ball gowns (in quilt block format, of course!) for Michelle Obama. Here's one golden off-the-shoulder formal (cotton) gown. Move over Sunbonnet Sue!

Willa,

Thanks for your note! I think the block is really cool.

And, it turns out Mrs. Obama did where gold/mustard color today for the Inauguration!

Best, Kyra

Definetly move over Sunbonnet Sue!!
Good block for 21st century girls- and it has style. You can do a lot with it. Great to have such an elegant and strong lady in the White house.
