The sewing room hasn't seen too much of me the last week either, so there's not much progress there. I did find a few minutes here and there to contemplate the final borders for Vintage Dresses. I think I'm about there. Now to decide on the final color, pink or blue.

I may change the corners so the colored borders better mimic the frames around each block. It's a lot of borders, but I like the 3-D effect you get by moving from lighter to darker from the center of the quilt. Now that I've got a plan, hopefully there will be some time in the sewing room soon to see if I've got the fabrics to make either one of these color schemes work.
The Scientist in Training has been home for just a little bit over a week. She hadn't seen the final version of the her Geek Chic quilt. To say she loves it is a bit of an understatement, it's become her go to quilt for relaxing.
Yes, the SIT has been treating herself to massive doses of Pokeman on the DS and while binge watching Netflix. It's OK, she made A's in everything but calculus. (There have been a few breaks for laundry, doing dishes and volunteering at the local animal shelter.)
I never shared the final name for what's been called around the house as the SITs chem quilt. Here's the label, minus Mom's message.
She loves it. That's the best thank you.
