Weekend in Review

I got a chance to make the charm bag using Sandy Garvis line called Holly Jolly. I started it lastnight and finished it this morning. It did not take long at all to make. I used the pattern from McCalls Quilting August 2007 issue and tweeked it by adding an inside pocket and putting a snap on the outside pocket so my cell phone will not fall out of it.

I mentioned a pattern that uses charm squares and a Jelly roll its called Butter charms and Jelly. I used the MonekyNRound that I got when I took my birthday quilting shopping trip to Lincoln. I started the quilt on Saturday morning and have just a little more to go and the top is done. Here is the start of the quilt making four patches. Then I had to trim them down. There was only 12 blocks so did not take long. Then added strips around the four patches and sewed them together. Then added the inside border. I have the top and bottom outside border ready to sew on then that just leaves the other two side borders. I hope to get this all finished tomorrow.


Oh lastweek Pat Sloan posted the new farmers Market block and I whipped it out using the extra large yo-yo maker. This block was so much fun and easy to do.

Well, you one the overachiever award this weekend. All I did was quilt my Sassy Sixteen and my Christmas Table Runner. I loved making my tote too. It does go together real easy. I used mine all through the summer. Now I need to make a fall/winter one.
