My own "Runaround Bag"...

I'm in love with the web-site, "Pintrest"! (Warning: It can be adictive!)
Yesterday I found a really cute purse idea and decided to buy the pattern from Anna Graham at Noodlehead. Then this morning I went to work using some super cute fabric I bought from I was going to make some PJ pants out of it until I found out it was heavy curtain fabric instead of quilting fabric. Oh well...It made a super cute one of a kind purse.

Just thought I would share.

It's on the Design Board!!!

As any quilter can tell you, the day you get your quilt to the point it can go up on the design board, it's a red letter day!!! I think it's going to look GREAT!!!! Just wait until it has the boarders and gets quilted, it's going to be a STUNNER!!!
Still plugg'n along......stay tuned!

Making progress....

I haven't had much time to quilt in the past few months, but I finally was able to make a huge dent in the quilt I'm making for my Aunt Luanne. I know she must think I'm REALLY slow when it comes to getting it done, but I've found that it's best to have the time to concentrate on a project so you don't mess it up.
Well that time finally came when I was able to go to Willow Creek for the weekend and sew with friends. We really had a great time! And I made lots of progress. I was able to square up all the half-square triangles and cut them into 3" segments and then rearrange them into the order I needed them for the block.
Then and sew some more.

Now I'm putting all the blocks together and then I can put them up on the design wall and sew the top together. It's looking really good and I know it's going to turn out great!

Anyway....that's the progress report.
