We did the grocery shopping last night since conditions are only going to go down hill during today. We'll have dangerously cold temps just like most of the Midwest with maybe a dusting of snow. It's a good day to hide out in my sewing room. I got a start on the hiding out last night. As a result the second little black dress is finished.
|Vintage Dresses, by Charise Randell|
It's hard to see but the black isn't really solid, it has a nice texture to it. I'd wear this to an elegant New Year's Eve party. Here are both black dresses.
Both dresses are cute, one's elegant, the other is fun. Just need one more dress to make to finish out the block count for the quilt. I've gone through most of the "standard" colors. I don't have a white/neutral dress, but with the white background, I'm not sure that would work. Hopefully today I can take a look at my scraps and see if there's something fun to use for the last one.
While I'm hopeful the last block will get done this month, the quilt won't get put together this year. Then next year I can start adding the coping strips and the sashing. I've already got a plan for next year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. It will be another paper pieced block, but not nearly so complicated as the Vintage Dresses have been.
Linking up with Soscrappy, then I'm going to drink some coffee and check out all the progress on everyone's scrap projects.
