Quilting class, and messy dresses

I have finished my first pieced quilt item. It's going to be a place mat. It's made with silly kitty fabrics, and I now understand I didn't choose my fabrics well. If you look closely, you'll see it's got a rail fence pattern, but ideally you want to choose a light, a dark and a medium fabric to play this up. I ended up with a dark and two very similar fabrics, so it doesn't pop as much. It will eventually be a mat for my cats to eat off of. Still needs backing, quilting, binding, etc.



As for the messed up dress I was whining about in an earlier post, here are my V-necks, front and back:



The V-neck facings are a mess. I can't get them to lay flat for anything and I'm trying to find some sort of solution to save this garment.

Hello, Thanks for visiting my blog. I haven't started this dress yet, and I don't have my fabric bought either, but I do know that I want a floral. I like your fabric, it's very nice.
I will look over the pattern instructions to see if
I can help :)
Your cats will enjoy their quilt mat I'm sure :)
