Bags Abound

This week I needed some quick finishes.
I have a couple of large projects in the works, 
which are going to take a while to finish,
so I needed a finish fix.

Out came my Becca Bag pattern.

For some reason,
beyond my memory,
years ago I bought a bunch of this fabric line.
I must have bought a fat quarter bundle along with some yardage,
so it's being used to make these bags.

These bags go together very quickly.
The most difficult part is getting the zipper pull back onto the zipper
after it's sewn to the bag.

I have a few more in mind to make for gifts.

After making the Becca Bag,
I made another Sew Together Bag.
I'm addicted!

After adding the different fabrics to the outer panel,
I straight line stitched the quilt sandwich.


These fabrics are so soft and feminine.

It's so much fun to play with the fabrics and choose different
pieces for the pocket linings, etc.

I have one more of these bags cut out and ready to go.

I've had the inner part of this little quilt done since before Christmas.
It's paper pieced and was waiting to be made into something.
The border fabric was added,
the quilting was done
and it's a finish.
I should have taken the pins out of my design wall or moved the piece
before taking the photo.

Oh well.

Happy Quilting!
