Red Dress Quilt

After I finished the quilt for J I started this quilt.  I am a Chapter Advisor for Alpha Phi and wanted to donate something for our annual Red Dr.ess Gala.  Parents and sisters attend this event to raise money for the Alpha Phi Foundation.  I knew that I needed to make a quilt that was fun and symbolized our philanthropy.  I found this cute pattern on Etsy and went to work. 

I am proud to say that the quilt brought in quite a bit of money (not sure of the exact total) and one of our sisters is the proud owner!  I was so happy to find out that the women love the quilt so much that they used it as a decoration during one of our formal recruitment events!

(I love a pieced back!!)
The fabric is "Sew Cherry" by Bee in my Bonnet with bamboo batting and quilted with a meandering pattern.
