I've been really busy cutting, sewing and shopping up a storm the past few days.
Sunday was my local quilt shop's "Super Bolt" Sunday sale. Aren't these fabrics fun!?!
I went straight to work on the Joel Dewberry fabric and made this fun bag from the One-Yard Wonders book. I modified it a bit from the pattern and used two fabrics (instead of one), added interfacing to the handle/top pieces, and I added a zipper. I'm trying to make friends with making bags. Bags are NOT usually my friends (for the APQers- remember the "Amy Butler is ridiculous" bag?!) and this bag was better. It still took some fiddling but that was because I added the zipper.
I've made a dent in my cousin's T-shirt quilt. I put on all the interfacing and cut out the 35 blocks. I bought the sashing/border/binding fabric (a navy/black blender) at the sale on Sunday.
Oh and look what came in the mail today! I received my first giveaway from Jenn @ Purpleheart Ori"jenn"als. Nigel is checking everything out and has officially given his approval. I love the beautiful scarf and the cute fabric pack! She had it all wrapped up with a pretty fabric bow, but I was too excited to rip it all open to take a picture of it. Thank you so much Jenn!! The scarf is just in time for Feb Fury!
The rest of my French General Rouenneries fabric arrived in the mail today too. So now I can finish that up.
Thanks February Fury for giving me a WIP day. Hooray! Stay warm everyone :)
