WIP and a new bag

Well I am still binding my Starry Punch Quilt, but I did make this Margaret Bag this weekend. It's an Elizabeth Hartman pattern and of course it was very well written! I especially love the weight of the bag. It's got good body but it's not stiff. Quite lovely!

I made Malka's Whirligig quilt this weekend too. The front was super easy to whip up, my pieced back, not so much. Since I had used so much of my half yards for the front (and it's a large quilt), I really had a lot of work to do to get it all pieced together. Not the easiest but I love the end result. I couldn't quite get the entire quilt in the pictures, my husband's arms aren't that long! I have to baste this and my Dead Simple Quilt soon.


I'm thinking about whipping up a couple of bucket hats from Sewing for Boys and then I have a baby quilt to make.

We had Guild Meeting last night and it was very energizing. It's always great to see and hear what people are working on.  We even had two new ladies join us.

I'm linking up!


  1. Love the bag. And the quilt is very interesting.

  2. I made a couple of Margaret bags a few weeks ago! I love it in the blue fabrics you chose. Maybe I'll have to make another. :)
