Good evening, friends!
I didn't log in this morning as I was a bit busy, trying to finish up what I had started yesterday! Didn't QUITE make it, but 'tis good enough as there is syrup to boil this evening!
So, I had tossed out yesterday that I was looking to create another pillow with a floral botanical design from Embroidery Library. Well... I make the inner block and started on the border. I stepped outside my normal triangles/squares/etc and went stripes (various widths), cut diagonally, tossed in some corner blocks and then machine quilted it around the inner block and along the stripes. Then I looked at it.
I didn't like it. I couldn't see it as a pillow. I was totally bummed out!
I looked at it some more and then I suddenly saw it wasn't supposed to be a pillow, it was a bag! AH HA!!! So I sewed it up, tidied up the corners, added a lining, a hooky-thingy off a purse (to hang keys) and then went to work on the handles! That's where I am at with it right now as I am stimied a bit as to what I want to use ~ I went with grommets to run the handles through, but what I wanted to use wasn't long enough! (bit of an unpublished Oopsie there!)
Then, suddenly, I wanted to see what to do with the scraps! Muahahaha!
I chopped up the border into 1" strips and arranged them in a bit of a bargello pattern, quilted them to a piece of flannel-like fabric (another story there...), lined it and viola! A glasses case!
Wow, that was FUN!!
So, TOMORROW is the first drawing for the blog ~ pop in and comment and YOU might win!
See you then,
