I'm addicted...

I made another one. I did. It only takes me one hour and ten minutes to make this dress. I know. How awesome is that?! I can't stop. I'm making one for every little girl I know. This one is for my niece Peyton. Her mom is gonna freak...

Here are the girls' dresses side by side: Peyton's has a slightly smaller trim band at the bottom and I added some ric-rac to the apron.

Here's the back view:
Once again, I used the Sandi Henderson's Claire pattern for Portabellopixie (The Petal Knot Dress). I buy all my patterns and most of my fabric from Material Girl Shoppe on Etsy.

I've also managed to put these blocks together while the hubby was working out.

They turned out very nice and I really like them. I think I'm going to squish them all together instead of using sashing. It will make a smaller quilt, but I'm ok with that. No sashing for two reasons: 1) I'm sick of finding and cutting fabric into strips and 2) I just want to get this thing done. It's been a WIP forEVER and I'm over it. There. I said it.

I hope you are being creative!!!
