Breezy Dress from Qulit blocks

Breezy Sundress Sewing Project

I knew I loved this collection from Ellen, the moment I first saw it one her blog. Cheerful bright primary colors, geometrical shapes, it has that fun vibe to it.
I finally broke down last week and bought a yard of this Quilt Blocks Collection from Moda Fabrics.

It was difficult to decide on just one fabric from the collection but I thought this fabric fit the design that I had in mind. Unfortunately, the design I envisioned didn't work out, so I had a change of plans.

The good thing is that it fits munchkin well.

Now we just need to add some icing...I do have a couple of ideas in mind like always. Will keep you posted.
Have a good weekend!
