I finally bit the bullet and ironed the 7 yards of backing fabric, figured out how to piece the back, cut the lengths and stitched it together.
The light blue check matches up nicely with the blue in the Vintage Dresses borders.
So the July OMG is finished just in time to figure out what's the OMG for August.
I didn't post last Monday due to the business trip to St. Louis and New Orleans. I just couldn't get my act pulled together to get a post written before I left town. So there's been a bit of progress on a couple of other projects over the last two weeks. The second round of borders for Storm at Sea is one accomplishment.

Next is a narrow white border, then the pieced border, another narrow white border and finally a wider dark blue final border. So there is still quite a bit of work left to do on this project.
Kevin released clue 2 of the Simply Sensational Summer Scrap Quilt last Thursday. More 4-patches in color number 2.
My initial color choices were blue and brown. But the more blue 4-patches I made the less I liked the brown with them. I have lots of yellow scraps, so made a last minute substitution. I'm so glad I did. Here's the progress with the blue 4-patches.
That covers the stitchy stuff going on in my sewing room. Linking up with Monday Making and the July One Monthly Goal.
