Red and White Finished

This week I finished a couple of things -yeah!.  My first finish was my red and white quite. Sorry it's not a very good photo.  We share our progress on the red and white at guild on Monday evening, as this is the last meeting prior to the Heritage Park Quilt show. Where there is going to be a Red and White quilt display. One of the ladies was going to take it to drop off for the show for me and I realized I had not taken a photo, so I took this one quickly, but will take better ones either at the show or once I have it back.

I was thinking this was going to be a baby quilt but it turned out a lot bigger than I was thinking. It more a good lap size.
I also finished LM Dress. I hemmed it by hand at the guild meeting as I was having trouble getting my head around the bind hem on my sewing machine. Someone show me how- I was just looking at it backwards, will have to try it on the next one. 
I cut out another dress in this pattern with some fabric I saw in the sale bin at Canmore. It will even go with the two left over red buttons.

Completed projects - 2
New projects - 1
In progress - 9

Great pattern on the quilt.
My friend is going to trace a pattern for me for dresses similar to that one. They look fun to make.
