Bag Ladies of the Fat Quarter Club Finale

Cat Patches

I think this is an appropriate way to end the year with these wonderful ladies.  The stitch along was hosted by the lovely Barbara of CatPatches and the stitcheries were  by Chickadee Hollow Designs.  These were such a delight to add to the 2017 year's project list.

We could either follow Borbara' pick for the month or chose which lady we would like - mostly I chose; as well as made each into their own minature to showcase.  I have to admit that I wasn't always diligent in my work on them, but I truly enjoyed working on this different medium of fiber play.

My last lady was Hildegard (even though the 5th lady of the series) and by dedicating my last week of the year to my handwork, I was able to get her done.  Her coat buttons  will be added with the 'quilting' finish once she's placed into her own minature.  She's quite a character with her backpack, jeans, workboots - and who asks a quilter to mend socks!!  But, she has a paper piecing pattern in her bag so I have to love her.

And just to show - I did get poor Earlene finished after so many months of setting her aside (and losing her).

Thank you Barbara for being such a gracious hostess, even while on your super travels you kept us going.

Great bag ladies! Are they going to hang on your sewing room wall? They are great companions to have as you sew!

Carol Swift said...

I love that Hildegard! She looks like quite the multitasker. Happy New Year to you!

What a great finish to the year. She looks like such a fun person, as Carol put it, quite the multitasker, our kind of lady. Happy New Year. Looking forward to your 2018 projects.

Your last bag lady is such a lovely one. Glad you finished her up before the new year began. Looking forward to seeing what you are going to add to your 2018 project list. Happy New Year and best wishes during the year.

Your bag ladies are so adorable. They are pretty and whimisical and your finish individual finishes are wonderful.

So enjoy looking at your ladies! Hope you had a nice New Years. I guess we are off to 2018 goals.

Congrats on finishing off the last of the ladies. It's been fun to watch the stitching on each.
