    Messed up but not going to change it

    It's a design decision. :P

    I somehow put two of the orange ones near each other. In the grand scheme of the whole quilt, it's not worth my time to re-do it. I'm at home today with bad stomach cramps off and on. Will be fine for awhile and then a wave of pain (and other things). There are many things I need to do but I'm just taking it easy.

    My son is getting married next Saturday and I got my dress this week. It's a bit too long so I need to hem it about 3". I got a small balero type jacket but it wasn't what I really wanted. I want a black lace one so I need to go shopping again. I meant to get a hair clip of some type that will go with the royal blue dress and I totally forgot when I got the dress. Not sure what my hair style will be. They have a guy who has done hair and makeup for Fashion Week in NY doing our hair on Saturday. I think I just want it straightened (normally a little wavy) and the front pulled back. It's long enough that I keep sitting on it while sewing this morning, I usually wear it up.

    Anyway... on to the next section!

    That block of the quilt is such a tease---- it's got to be a stunning quilt. The dress is gorgeous too!

    I can't wear 3" heels! maybe just hem it 2".

    The pattern is the Judy Niemeyer Prairie Star. That's one of the 16 sections that go around the outside edge.

    Golly, if you look this good and are this pretty, I wouldn't stand too close to the new bride.[she may be a bit jealous]. I like the length of the dress with heels.

    Hope you are feeling better soon! I would remove it if it was right next to each other but there is colour in between so it is fine. Pretty dress and blue is a really "in" colour.

    Don't I wish! That's not me, that's just the picture of the dress. That blue is definitely "in". There were lots of blue dresses, more than anything else besides black. The wedding colors are black, white, and red. As the mother-of-the-bride said, "I am not wearing black to my daughter's wedding!" She is wearing purple and I'll wear the blue.

    I don't see anything wrong with the layout of your quilt.

    Hope you feel lots better by now. Tummy cramps can be awful.
    Can't wait to see the quilt that gorgeous block is going to be a part of!
    Congrats on your son being married. Your dress is So glamorous, like a 40's movie star.
    My daughter is getting married in 48 days and all the ladies I know are still scrambling to find dresses. The men all can just wear one of their own suits...lucky ducks.

    I wouldn't worry about the two orange pieces being close, as they are not side by side. Your dress is beautiful, just like the person wearing it. Hope you have a lot of fun at the wedding, and I'm so jealous that you are getting special treatment for the wedding.
