Steffi's Dresses for A Lovely Year of Finishes- March Goal

My goal for this month is to finish Steffi's Dresses. This is a quilt top that I started piecing two years ago with pieces of my mother's old dresses. When she died in 2002 I was left with all her beautiful custom made dresses that I grew up with her wearing that were all made with gorgeous batik fabrics from different countries in South East Asia. Here are some pictures of  some of the piecing with the fabrics.

I am using a pattern from the book Material Obsession Two. I have the borders to piece on still and then I can baste it. I had ordered some wool batting for it and the LQS just called me to let me know it came in so I figured I might as well jump into the deep end and and make the commitment to finish this very special quilt. I am hoping if it is at all possible I will scan and post a few pictures of my mother wearing some of these dresses as well.

Good luck everyone over at fiberofallsorts with their March goals and I can't wait to see what everyone is working on!
