What I have been working on....

I finished my bag. I am going to give it to my sister for her birthday.


We are going to be moving to Houston in less than 2 weeks, and I will be without my sewing machine etc for a while so I decided to start a few applique projects to keep me going.

Here is the BOM project...






And here is another project I started. I got the pattern from Don't Look Now. It was fun and easy. The pattern is for a pillow, but I decided to do a wall hanging instead. I also decided to add a scrappy border. I am going to hang it up in my new office/sewing room at the new house when it is finished. Hopefully finishing the edges will keep me busy for a while.

The Home Sweet Home BOM I am doing hand applique, and this one I did with iron on fusible web. The iron on was so much easier than turning the edges...after I finish the Home Sweet Home quilt I think I will do all future projects with the iron on method...maybe. LOL

Oh my! We have the same tastes in quilts! I have the fabric all purchased and book sitting waiting for me to make the Blackbird houses quilt - beautiful pattern! Plus I made the Don't Look Now pillow a couple of months ago - so easy, so bright and so very happy! Enjoy. - Marlene

I, too, have been working on the Home Sweet Home blocks. They are all done and I was working on the border, but didn't like the way there were coming out. I am actually thinking of ripping them out and starting over, but because I was so frustrated I put the whole thing away for awhile. enjoy working on this quilt. It is a beauty.

Love the bag! I did the Home Sweet Home, but have never gotten it quilted... that will have to be one of my future finishes. Enjoy the applique.

Your bag is adorable. I love quilts with houses in them, so I can't wait to see it finished. Good luck on your move to Houston!

I recently went on my first road trip to Houston - just visiting (I'm from DFW area) and noticed that the ride was a breeze, hopefully your move is just as smooth. Love your projects, they are looking great!
