Spring dress and other small projects

I made myself a spring dress yesterday using 2 yards of Westminster Martha Negley fabric called "Crabapple Path". I bought the fabric on sale so the dress cost less than $10 to make including the zipper and muslin lining.
I used New Look pattern 6776, it was relatively quick to make and fits really great. I made the dress without the sash belt. It's still too cold here to wear it, but hopefully it will warm up enough next month. 

I'm also making 6 place-mats using Moda Cosmo Cricket fabric. Quite time-consuming, I must say.
I've also started a baby quilt for a friend who is going to have a baby boy in September. I used two charm packs from Moda Bunny Hill - Putting on the ritz. I only used the blue and grey squares, I will sash it with ivory fabric (that is still in the mail somewhere) and add a border with light grey print. I hope that she will like it.
