These days my mind is all over the place when it comes to quilting.
I can't seem to stay focused on one project for very long.
I want to finish this,
I want to make that,
I NEED to do this.. right now!
Therefore, I have a LOT going on in my Hidey Hole.
I am trying to make myself finish things in this unfocused time.
"If you start this, then you need to finish that..."
This works for a while.
So in the meantime...
I have some new things to show!
On Sunday I did finish another "Sew Together" bag.
The second one went together much faster and I
didn't need my seam ripper at all!
I used a lot of the same fabrics as I did in the first bag,
because they were out. :)
I had white zippers and used these instead of buying the pretty colors.
I fussy cut the fabric for the pocket lining and made those extra pretty.
These bags are quite fun to make!
Yesterday I started work on my annual
"Red, White and Blue"
little quilts for my family.
I started this about 5 years ago and have made my siblings and mom
a little table runner or table topper out of red, white and blue fabric.
I asked my sister if she was sick of them yet and she said no!!
Borders will be added to these and then they will be quilted.
I make six each year.
I saw this design on Pinterest, but it didn't credit the source.
My dad was one of the most patriotic people I know,
so each year I make these in memory of him.
Below are the four other annual table toppers I've made.
