Picking the focus project for this month isn't hard as I lined that out back in December. March's OMG will be for the Vintage Dresses blocks.

Last time this project was up in the rotation, I added coping strips to make the blocks all the same size. Next each block needs a colored frame, but that will get added with the sashing. So I need to decide on the final layout and start making those sashing strips. I've got a lot of commitments this month. There are two business trips, a 2 day volunteer stint for a science demonstration program, spring break and Easter. All of those will cut into my weekends, so sewing time is going to be at a premium this month. As much as I'd like this to be a finished flimsy by the end of the month, I'll be doing good to get the blocks all sewn together. So that will be this month's goal, get all the sashing strips made and the center of the quilt sewn together. Hopefully that's doable based on this month's calendar.
So the sewing room focus list looks like this for March:
1. Sew the Vintage Dress blocks together.
2. Bind Geek Chic
3. Send Magnolia Mystery out for quilting
4. Make 3 Squared Away blocks in bright and light greens
5. Make 5 Sawtooth Star blocks in green
6 On Ringo Lake - Leaders and Enders project
March is going to be a busy month!
