Quilt Retreat

I'm getting ready to go on a Quilt Retreat in a few days. I've got the pieces cut and ready to sew for 4 different quilt projects. I'm not sure if I will get this much finished. I might have to do more stitching and less talking this time. A retreat is always so much fun!

New Tote

I made this really cute tote. It is the larger one on the pattern. I think it is more the size of a large purse that a tote. It was quick and easy. I did put a lining in it that wasn't on the pattern (Hot Pink!). I really like the outside pockets. If I make another I will definitely make the straps a little wider.

Cell Phone Pouch

I finished two new cell phone pouchs. These are easy to make with leftover scraps from other projects. I wrote about the pattern in a previous post Cell Phone Pouch.

My Bag

This over the shoulder bag turned out really cute. I will make more of these.

Quilt Along

I have all my blocks put together for the "Quilt Along Quilt" that I've been working on. I really love how the fabrics look together. It is so bright and fresh looking. I need to decide if it needs a border or not and get it quilted. I never look forward to quilting in the summer.

Here is a close up of the quilt. This was really a fast fun quilt. Beautiful fabrics like these look great even in a simple quilt. I will definitely make another sometime.

Summer In Texas

It was 109 degrees today! Hot, Hot, Hot. Too hot for many flowers to bloom. But the Sunflowers are surviving. Thank goodness for air conditioning. I'm going to stay inside and sew.
