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?

Just read deadline has been extended, after I have rushed to get this finished today ;). Well when I say rushed it takes about an hour to make, all done on the overlocker. Fabric was from Fabworks about 2 years ago, I got it in blue and green as well and made the same dress straight away but somehow never got round to the red.
Now have I got time to do something with the red velvet? perhaps a  :frock:
@Iminei I do love a bit of snoopy, that's were my signature comes from.

I need your opinions ladies as tempus fugit ever closer to the end of the month.
I have finished quilting the white areas, tomorrow I'll start on the Red but I need to know this in advance so please can I have your opinions on the Binding choice please

This is Binding option A ....


                         
                         
And this is Binding option B (if I have enough of it )



The Red, White and Black patterned fabric is the backing fabric.

Gawd,  :\

I hope I can find some ... I have some but probably not enough for all the binding.

@Iminei I like the backing fabric could you use this as the binding? I am not a quilter so no idea if this is the done thing. Feel free to slap me down with a  :fish:

I'd go for the light red too, mainly because, although I like the dark binding, it introduces an extra colour which isn't present in the main quilt. :S

Yes You can use the backing fabric but I think, on this occasion, that it would make the front look mucky...
Thank you for your suggestion though.
