Weekend Stitching - Other Stuff on the Design Wall

The Scientist in Training is home for spring break, so we've been off doing some mom/daughter stuff most of the weekend.  My Guy tagged along a couple of times.  It's been a fun and relaxing weekend, but there hasn't been a lot of sewing room time.  Pretty much just my minimum of 15 minutes. So there is just a bit of progress on getting the Vintage Dress blocks sashed.

All the sashing pieces for the second row are finished.  The next step is to sew that row together. With just one weekend left in the month, it's going to be a challenge to get all the blocks sewn together.  Even if I don't make my March OMG, I'm happy there has been progress.  

There are some other projects up on the other design wall. 

On Ringo Lake, Bonnie Hunter 2017 Mystery Quilt  and  Squared Away Sampler
designed by Mari (The Academic Quilter) The 2018 Rainbow Scrap Challenge Project

My On Ringo Lake blocks are across the top, with a partial there on the left.  Leaders and enders can be a slow way to finish a project, but at least there's been steady project.  The green and white blocks in the middle of the wall is the first Squared Away block for March.  I've been stitching those HSTs in between the Vintage Dress sashing strips.  I haven't even chosen the fabrics for the next two Squared Away blocks, so those are likely to carry over to April.  

That's it for me this week.  Linking up with the usual suspects listed below:

BOMs Away
Monday Making
Design Wall Monday
Main Crush Monday

the sashing on the dresses looks amazing!

Lynette said...

The dresses are so wonderful - completely worthy of an OMG slot, and yet so fantastic they're also worth getting done up with best effort, not something to be rushed. I know I've already said it, but I Love-Love-Love these frames on them!

Bonnie said...

What a neat way of doing sashing. The end product is terrific. Slow but steady works really well...ask the turtle. (giggle....)

Your dresses are going to be amazing when they’re all finished. I keep wanting to see the whole top stitched together.

Sounds like you had a very fun weekend. I love the borders around the dresses. It just makes them pop.

Jennifer said...

Looks like good progress, especially with limited sewing time. Hope you’ve enjoyed having your daughter home! Is her quilt back from your quilter yet?

Sandy said...

I can't believe how different the Vintage Dresses top looks with that sashing. And the little cornerstones are perfect. It gets prettier every time I see it!

Judy Hansen said...

Your vintage dresses quilt makes me smile whenever I see it. Reminds me to make someting similar using my Mom's beautiful handkerchiefs. The sashing really sets off your dresses, good job!

Even with 15 minutes a day, you are making good progess on the vintage dresses quilt. How does your daughter like the quilt?

Working a bit today on my RSC blocks for March. I like seeing someone else with multiple projects on the go! That sashing is looking FAB!

Cheryl said...
