W.i.P. - For the Echo Lovers

No change concerning the stats, just some shifting from ongoing to stalled to ease my mind, but some definite progress with two projects. First, I posted a pic of my nearly finished summer dress on Sunday. Can't wait to wear it soon.

Second, there's the anniversary quilt. I've finished the first of three sections as well as a third of the other two each.

Here's the bottom right corner piece. It didn't fit into the other pic.

This top is coming together nicely and quickly. Guess I should order batting soon and make up my mind about backing. Maybe an all turquoise backing? Maybe a print? At the end of the day, there's a deadline to meet (a year ago today I had my final wedding dress fitting!) and I think I might be making a trip to Ikea soon in an effort to score some nice but cheaper fabric.
