It’s finished.  Had to get it done today, no more free time til after the end of the month.
It’s reversible, so it’s just the one apron; flowery side and gingham side.
Not sure why only one photo is the right way up 🙄

The Back is pieced ....



The pic is upside down, the half blocks should be on the right of the back as  you look at it.

I might have to add another thin white border as I used 6 half blocks which equates to 60" length and the quilt measures 58" square D'OH! Wheres the Brenda the Mathmajician of Quilting when you need her ... or just add a strip top and bottom, yes I like that idea better!

Linky in case of invisibubble pics

@Iminei when you put a strip in the back like that what tricks do you use to get it to line up straight?
Life's too short for ironing.

I'm sure it looks fabulous!

I'm still getting nowhere with my project, just not enough hours in the day  :S I've got a deadline of until tomorrow evening to finish my corset and then I really need to get on with my dress for this wedding. Only then can I "Sew Red" and it's unlikely to be before the deadline for judging, but I'll still donate anyway  :P

Remember guys you've got 3 days to post your pictures up. If you've already done them and are intending to submit, can you reply to this comment so I can make sure I don't miss anyone.

Voting will go up 24th/25th or so and run for about 10 days.

It says in the first post that pictures need to be up by 23rd.

However, if most are happy to extend it until the end of September then I am OK with that too.

The Dark Side's applique competition is being run in conjunction with the Sew Red one, so am I right in thinking the closing date for that is 30th September?

I've made no progress with my red dress as several 'could you just' requests took precedence so if the end date is extended I might manage it. I'll still donate, is there a link to the donation page?
