I am notorious for starting a project when I have no business doing so. Literally dozens of quilts wait in the wings and I decided that it’s time to start making a dress for my one-year-old niece. Let’s not mention how she is still waiting for a quilt (in progress) or how I have another fabric gift I'm working on for her. But she's almost walking. She needs a dress from Auntie Sarah.
I decided to make her a Jewel's Stripwork Dress in the same style as my daughter's airplane dress from when she was two. For the scrappy version it requires nine different fabrics. I started looking at my stash and settled on the Tula Pink drawer to select from. My sister was visiting so she helped pick a focus fabric (those awesome raccoons) and the supporting fabrics. I originally purchased three yards of the raccoons to make my daughter a dress, but that never happened. I’ve used them in a couple other projects, like this mug rug and this swap mini. There are also bits of that print in my 100 day blocks.
I’ve cut out all the pieces. If I remember correctly the dress goes together really quickly so I hope to have it done by their next visit on the 13th. Stay tuned!
