one quilt block

I know, the other day I said I wanted to have 2 quilt blocks done for my quilting bee, a Notion or Two. Well, I've been battling house flies among other things and haven't gotten to the other one. And then I got another packet of fabric. So I still have 2 homework assignments over the weekend - at least it's fun homework!

Here is my quilt block for Tara. for July (quickly hides calendar). She asked for appliqued dresses. It was a daunting task as we had this for inspiration - just a little intimidating. Which is probably why I only finished this week.



I can't remember what fabrics they are. They were Moda precuts - I think it might be Aviary. I loved the little blue print so I snuck on this little flower. I used the idea from this tutorial at V. and Co. - but on a much smaller scale. It was super easy!


I can't wait to see how her whole quilt turns out!

Speaking of V. and Co., you should check out the giveaway over there sponsored by csn mattresses for a chance to win the most gorgeous pillow! And if you're not interested in winning a pillow, well you should just go check out her funny, creative, pretty blog.

Amy! This is the cutest thing I've ever seen. EVER. Why do you do this to me? You know I have a little girl, right? You know I love fabric, right? And starting now you know that I love ric-rac. You're killing me. When am I going to make a dress quilt? WHEN? Boooo.

I can see how that inspiration pic might be super intimidating.
But you have certainly risen to the challenge.
Beautiful work!

By the way, how did you learn to make that flower? I want to put a big layered one on a twenties-ish hat I have.
