Deep in the Forest Progress

When I posted about one of the
Hands 2 Help quilts I'm making the other day,
Sara at My Sewing Room commented that
she thought of "Deep in the Forest" when she looked at the blocks.

The name was found!
Thank you, Sara!

I've worked on the quilt on and off all week,
in between other life adventures.
The blocks were all made within a couple of days.

(I had to stand on a stool to take the photo.)
These blocks went together so quickly
once I got into a sewing groove.

The quilting was done over a couple of days.
Since the name is
"Deep in the Forest"
I decided to quilt leaves onto the quilt with a little
meander in between.

The binding is being sewn on now and will, hopefully,
be finished tonight.

This has been one fun quilt to make!
I see another in my future with some of my bright batiks.

A friend traveled to Africa to visit her son
and brought back some fabric for each of us in our quilt group
to make a Becca Bag.

This is mine and I love it!
I didn't add the flange to this one and love the patterns together.
 She also brought back earrings to use as zipper pulls.
What a great idea!

Thank you,  Laura!

Happy Quilting!

You are very welcome for the name suggestion. It is gorgeous! It immediately made me think of how the light plays off the various kinds of trees when you are deep in the forest.

The bag is a perfect use of the fabric and earring. Wow!

Your Forest quilt looks beautiful. It does look like a fun one to make. I LOVE your African bag. That is great fabric and I love the idea of an earring for the zipper pull.
