Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Is Magenta the Same as Red-Violet?

It's amazing how fast the weeks seem to fly this time of year.  Thanksgiving is not quite 2 weeks away.  Thankfully My Guy and Drama Teen are responsible for that dinner menu, I'm just responsible for reminding them that it's time to decide on the grocery list and pick up the bigger items.  

My Guy has been off at a conference, so it's been just Drama Teen and I this week.  Sewing time was easy to come by.  So much so that 2 of the 5 remaining Vintage Dresses needed for this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt were finished up this wee.  The first is from the dark end of the red-violet spectrum.



Not sure where you'd wear this one, but I love the dragon flies on the insert.  The second dress is definitely on the lighter side. 



It would have been better had those lighter flowers ended up in the middle rather than off to one side.  I didn't realize that this fabric probably needed to be fussy cut.  But I"ll claim this was  deliberate design element and not worry about it going forward. 

Here are both dresses together.

The actual color of both dresses is best represented by this photo.  They are fun additions to the project. Now to pick the fabrics for the 2 black dresses.   

Just 3 dresses left to make before I can start on the assembly.  This project isn't likely to get done this year, but hopefully it will get finished up sometime early in 2017.  I've been doing pretty well at finishing up the projects I've started the last couple of years, but my UFO list hasn't gone down much.  

Linking up with Soscrappy for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and with Quilting is More Fun than Housework for Oh Scrap when those posts are up.

  2. Very fun dresses. I like how the lighter spot on the dress is off to the side. It looks like a highlight from a light or window on the dress.

  3. Those dragonflies do make a stunning dress. Such a sophisticated color selection too.

  4. Every month I think your current dresses are my favorites. At least the lighter hydrangea blooms are on the same side of the dress so you can say it is sunlight hitting that side ;-)

  7. I loved the dragon fly fabric, too! And I thought the same thing as Cheryl above - the lighter fabric on the side of the purple dress looks like a beam of sunoight is hitting it! They are both so pretty!
