Then I found some fat quarters and instantly knew they would make a great bag! So I cut out all the pieces for my next bag. I will not have time to sew it together today but hopefully tomorrow!
Experimenting with a different shaped pocket and a tab closure
Closeup of fabric--I cut out some of the little round flowers to applique on the brown pocket
Won't this fabric make the cutest bag? I will post the completed bag in a day or two.....
It was already 11:00 pm by the time I stopped cutting out the fabric pieces above, so I was not about to start sewing my quilt blocks. When I am tired, it is always wise to put all sewing projects to rest. I did. This morning I completed the two blocks that I committed myself to yesterday and here is my progress....they are not sewn--just blocks lying next to each other all over the floor in random order:
So far it is 30" x 40"
I am not sure what the final size will be. The pattern I originally referred to was 50" x 70". If I have enough
of all the fabrics I will make it that large. My pledge was to complete a quilt larger than a potholder and to have it finished by summer's end. So I am happy with my progress thus far and feel confident I can complete this in the next couple of weeks.
Note to self:
"The best gift we can have, is living in the present moment and really enjoying it for what it is; and not being in our heads and getting sidetracked."
