There has been some interest in doing a dress block swap. There will be a maximum of 12 participants. Each person will do a dress block representative of their birth month for example, if you were born in July, a patriotic themed dress etc. if there are duplicate months you must willing to switch to a month that is not represented. Your finished block size needs to be 12 1/2 inches. If you would like to participate, please respond to this bread by saying "I'm in!" First 11 responses will be the participants. Blocks will be due to me by May 31. Looking forward to seeing the months!

Below are the months that are already been spoken for.  I am flexible to change my month, so if you want to join, say I'm in and the month you would like of the remaining choices.  First come first served!

January Kathy Gurgone

February Kenya Hampton

March Vicki Bujnak

April Carla J Walton

May Mary-Anne Buist

June Connie Wilkerson

I actually put my dresses together.  Debating about putting the month on each one .... still thinking!  Going to the store tomorrow to look for some backing for a couple of other quilts and if I find something I like better than my current backing, I will get another one.  Will post once the quilt is finished. .... also have to get the Tea Cup done!!!

Good for you, Wilma!!!  Enjoy the shopping.

can't wait to see it Wilma. I won't see the blocks til I get to Arizona in November

I won't be much ahead of you as we are gone until October 7th.  Hoping the quilter will have it finished when I get back.  You will have a surprise when you get your blocks, they are lovely!

Status of the quilt ... delivered it to the quilter on Saturday.  We leave on Sept 2 and are gone until Oct 7.  Will pick it up the next week ... hopefully it will be finished by then, especially since I gave her 4 quilts LOL.  Decided I would not add the months, but put the info on my label.  Will post a picture when I pick it up.  Has anyone else managed to put theirs together?

i will be waiting! can't wait to see it!

I do not have the binding on my quilt done yet, but I picked it up from the quilter. Love the job she did. Will post a picture tomorrow.
Here it is, just need to add binding. She quilted little dress forms around the dresses and high heels on the borders. Binding will be the same gray color. Backing is multi color dress forms. Love it.

Cute, Wima.  The sashing made me think of looking at a display in a dress shop window.  Pretty.  Thanks for inspiring us to get ours done.

that is adorable Wilma. sigh............I SO NEED TO GET IN GEAR on all my blocks.
