Rainbow Scrap Challenge: One Down, Two to Go

It certainly felt like a long week, I'm so glad to see the weekend roll around.  Though, it's not going to slow down much for the weekend.  Drama Teen needs a formal for the Snow Ball dance to be held in a couple of weeks, the Christmas tree needs to find it's way out of the attic and I need to make room in my sewing space for all the wrapping paper, bows, and name tags.  So it will be a busy weekend, but there will be some stitching time, my sanity definitely needs it.  

Before finishing off the binding for the Zombie quilt, I did take some time to finish the first of two black dress blocks.  


 Vintage Dresses by Charise Randell

It's definitely a bright dress, more fun then elegant I think.  The pieces for the second black dress are being cut out. Hopefully I'll have some time to work on it this week in between the graduation quilts and Bonnie Hunter's mystery.  

Just two more dresses left.  Once I finish off the Blooms and Butterflies quilt, my plan is to add the frames each block needs as my next leader and ender project.  The blocks are all slightly different sizes, so the frames are needed to get the blocks to a consistent size for sashing.  I'm looking forward to getting all of these up on the design wall and playing with the layout.  That's not happening till next year, but at least I have a plan.

  7. It does light up the room, a fun holiday party dress. I'm snowed under with En Provence so far and the loaner machine has a bobbin problem. Good luck getting all that done. Take a few deep breaths.
