I finished my flag quilt. It turned out super cute. I thought I would enter it in our county fair, but unfortunately things happen. Like I got "glue" somehow on the back and front ... just enough so it wasn't predestine enough for the fair. But, actually seeing things that placed at the fair .... I should have entered it. I am making another one for my daughter, or daughters, and one of those will be hopefully perfect for next year's fair. lol
Moving on ..... We had a couple of sew-in-days in our Guild to work on Quilts of Valor. Lots and lots of fabric is donated for these quilts. There were 3 of us that had the same fabric, but all 3 totally different patterns. The other 2 were just awesome, but of course no pictures to show. So, I had to come up with something just as striking.
It really is hard to see the fabric prints with the sun on it. But ... truly it is a nice pattern.
My friend, Charlene, and I took a purse class. It was a Professional Mini Tote Bag ..... It was a challenge at times, and often heard myself saying, I hate this bag, I truly hate this bag!! But many hours of homework after two, three hour classes each ..... we finally finished them. Here is my first purse - bag project. Don't know if I will ever tackle making this again! We'll see. But, I maybe will do a simple tote bag:-)
This was after 3 hours of sewing ..................................
Inside has many pockets. Oh Gee ... even a pocket
for the I-Pad I am sure I am going to get one of these days:-)
Probably when H _ _ _ freezes over?
In between all that, I have been working on the Cottage Romance quilt. I completed the inside with the pin-wheel stars and the log cabins. I have to figure out the placement of these logs .... I just hung them on my wall. I have 2 more large pin-wheel blocks that will be on the corners to complete.
It seems I just can't help but take blurry pictures!
I've just been summoned for dinner .... so have to end this here. Please stop by again ... say hello.
