A bag and a quilt

I made another bag, well actually two but no sense in showing the same bag twice.  If you want to see that friend me on FB and you will see both.  The bag I made last week, a co-worker wanted it a bought it from me.  I made one last night and my sister wanted it.  I came home to an e-mail tonight asking if I could make another for a friend so here is number three and I still don't have one for myself.  Next one is mine, hopefully.

I have completed the quilt.  I like the outcome.  I do think there is too much pink but oh well, my background fabric maybe wasn't the right choice but it was fun to make and I had fun playing,  Isn't that what quilting should be about, playing and seeing what happens.  That is my style of  quilting.  I followed the concept in the book One Block Wonder Encore!.  FUN, FUN, FUN!

Well I best find some fabric I have misplaced.  I need to make an overnight bag for my grandson.  I mixed up pajama's last weekend and put the 2 1/2 year old in bed with the pajama's that were sent over for the nine month old.  OOPS, I wondered why they seemed so small, he didn't complain and slept well.  Maybe he thought he was in a straight jacket. :)   I will make another overnight bag and they will have their own bag so maybe this won't happen again.

Have a great week-end and say a little prayers for our fellow Americans in the tornado alley.

The bags are adorable and I LOVE your one block wonder. I especially like the yellow star part of it!

I love how that quilt came out! That is sometimes the very fun part - using wild fabrics, wondering all the time as you are sewing and then magic comes together! Funny about your bags - keep sewing - you might end up with one for yourself one of these days! They are so cute I can see why everyone wants one. Cheers! Evelyn
