In: Yardage (for a baby quilt for a great-niece coming in June!!!), a remnant, patterns, and FQs, from our guild’s Quilter’s Day Out. Zipper heads for leftover zipper tape and half zippers.


Out: Miranda Bag!!! From the leftovers: 2 Open Wide Zippered Pouches and 2 pouches of my own design, and a heart pouch with potato chip lining, My weekly Moda Blockhead #7, I didn’t like their heart block so made my own. And a new start. Yup, that Lil’ Katie pattern I bought Friday is using Shibori Charms to create a low contrast table runner. More on that Tuesday.

Now I have 5 new bags and no idea what to put in them!!! Maybe I need to do another give away? Check back tomorrow to see how I dressed them up.

This is all I have left of the bag fabric.

Actually, I used that darker 2″ square for zipper tabs!

  1. Hi Chris! That quote looks nice as your header – it’s a cool one to embrace. I just LOVE, love, LOVE that shibori charms fabric. Cannot wait to see what you’re making with that! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. I love your bags. You sure get them done fast. And thanks for the link to Meditations in Motion. That was a great post. Good thing I wasn’t drinking when I read about her last year’s Lent, I would have spewed it all over my screen.

    1. I thought it was a wonderful post, so wanted to share. Thanks! I get them done fast because I don’t stop for anything! Food, sleep, etc. LOL > >

  3. That is a lot of sewing and fabric out. Such wonderful bags you make! That’s a great quotation, too. Something to ponder for a while.

  4. Do you ever find it hard to balance the quilting and knitting? I tend to find I do more crocheting and less quilting or visa versa. Love your projects.

    1. Yes!!! Seems the sewing is taking over the knitting right now. But that’s mostly because I have so much I want to make in sewing, just having returned to it in the last 3 years. I have 20 years of knitting under my belt, and an armoire full of knit stuff! > >
