Scrappy Wednesday

The commissioned bags are finished and client contacted for pick up.  While I was going over the plans for the larger bag, I remembered I had a horse print bag in-progress from my bag class.  A few changes had to be made for the required interior, but it made for a quick finish with something already 3/4 done.  

I managed to get four  completed Patchwork QAL blocks done using them as leader/enders with the bags.  I'll try to finish the other two with the same method when I play today.

The next temperature rosette shows that we went into a warm spell.

One of the gals who 'shopped' my loaded table wanted to return the favor.  I told her to bring me an 'ugly' to challenge me.  THIS IS NOT UGLY!  This is a treasure!  Yardage of "Pink and Chocolate" by Nancy Gere for Windham Fabrics - BUT.............

she had pieces from the line and look at this!  I am taking a day to play before I dive into the next commission work.  I have been loving the Burgoyne Surrounded blocks popping up around the web and I think these will be perfect for such a project.

Sewingly Yours,


  1. Those fabrics play together so well, I can see you will have a heap of fun arranging and also playing with options. Lovely blocks and the bags, I am a real sucker for any bag, I love making them too.

  2. The bags look great! Sure she will love them. Love the chocolate floral...very yummy! Yes, those fabrics will be great for your project:)

  3. Great bags and love the yellows in your hexie.

  4. The bags look great and I can wait to see what you create with the fabrics.

  5. I really like the horse fabric in your bags; is it a Laurel Burch design? I agree with you, that pink and chocolate fabric is lovely!

  6. The bags turned out beautifully! I like the chocolate and pink print. I've got a few older prints like that in the stash, but I never know what to do with them.
