Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Starting Green

This week seemed to go on forever.  My Guy woke up Wednesday thinking it was Saturday.  In part it's been that Drama Teen is home since school is out. Plus with the holiday weekend a lot of people took off the last part of the week, so it was almost like a ghost town, especially on Friday.  I had meetings that couldn't be moved, so no early holiday for me.  

I've had time to stitch most evenings this week so you'd think I'd have something to show for it.  Those Vintage Dress blocks take a while to assemble. I tried to get one finished up last night, but we had plans.  All I have to show this week is the fabric selections for the green dresses.

The bright green on the left is working up nicely.  It's going to be a very bright dress.  I haven't started on the gingham dress yet.  I decided you really couldn't have a vintage dress quilt without at least one gingham dress.  Hopefully it will make up as pretty as the previous dresses have been. 

For those in the US, enjoy your holiday weekend.  We have no plans for the weekend.  Just going to catch up on stuff around the house and hopefully get some stitching done.  Though I'm pretty sure there will be a trip to Tulsa in there somewhere.  

Now it's time for a second cup of coffee and a peak at all other green scrappy blocks over at Soscrappy.

  12. The gingham fabric will be perfect for your old fashioned looking dress. Hope that the long holiday weekend will bring you some time to play.

  13. You are right about the gingham for a vintage dress...I made one that I loved and wore often when I was in high school! I'll bet it takes a lot of time just to pick out the perfect fabrics for these dresses...almost like shopping for a new dress!
