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.
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.
The bags look great! Sure she will love them. Love the chocolate floral...very yummy! Yes, those fabrics will be great for your project:)
Great bags and love the yellows in your hexie.
The bags look great and I can wait to see what you create with the fabrics.
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!
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.
