Finally Finished $5 Quilt!

Way back in February I wrote about a $5 quilt group that I participated in at The Quilt Barn in Puyallup. In 2007 I went once a month a got a pattern and fabric to make a quilt. If you complete your block each month you get the next block free. Well, I finally got it all put together, quilted and the binding stitched on. It's really not a Christmas quilt. There isn't one Christmas fabric in it, but it comes off totally Christmas and it brightens the whole room. Finally finished !!! Merry Christmas!!!

A Bag Obsession

I absolutely LOVE Bags! I have several, but I have never really made a cloth one. I made several felted bags a few years ago, but this fabric one caught my eye. The class was held at The Quilt Barn in Puyallup last Wednesday night. The pattern is the Miranda Day Bag from Lazy Girl Designs. It was so fun to make and we had everything done except the handles in three hours of class time. That didn't include cutting the pieces out, but that was maybe and hour of pre-work. I would say that it took a total of five hours from first cut to the finished product. I love this bag and it went together to easy! This could be a dangerous pattern for me to own!
