Happy Thursday...the week seems to be on fast forward as I'm trying to hold on to every spare minute of spring break! I've decided I probably won't finish even half of the things on my list, but that's okay. First I want to share a couple of book project photos from A Quilting Life: Creating a Handmade Home . I included my hexagon bag pattern in the book...it was my first magazine submission, and it just seemed like it belonged in my first book. Pictured above is the bag in Lori Holt's Sew Cherry collection that I used for the book photos. This one is almost too cute to use...I think I'm going to hang it up in my sewing room!
I also made a Terrain (by Kate Spain) version which I've been using as my main purse lately...I love this version too! (PS my Honey Honey composition notebook fits inside perfectly, and the Honey Honey looks wonderful with Terrain).
And here's a shot by Korindi of the cover quilt...this photo isn't included in the book but was taken after the quilts came home...I just love this photo!
Finally...although I don't have much quilting to share since I've been working on a Scrumptious project for Camille...I thought I would share what I cut out the other night when I was in one of those "cutting" moods! On my top left project board are the pieces for 3 more Moda Friendship blocks in Bella solids...more on those soon! The top right project board has all the bits and pieces for two different versions of block 5 in Monique's quilt-along, and the bottom left project board has all the pieces for two different versions of the final block for the same project. The bottom right project board has pieces for 2 more barns in Lori Holt's barn quilt along. It makes it easy to grab a project and sew when it's ready to go like this....this is perhaps my best time-saving tip.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy your day!
