A Start and a Finish

I finished the Midi Bag! it turned out pretty cute I think. The colors remind me of the 1980’s.

And I also got started on my Madrona Road challenge quilt for the Tampa Modern Quilt Guild. So far, I think I’m off to a good start according to my roughly sketched plan. We’ll see how many bumps I hit along the way.

  1. Is that the one you posted the sketch about? Your bag looks so pretty! Did you add the pocket on your own or it was part of the pattern?

    • Yes these are the fabrics I’m using for that quilt I posted a sketch on FB. Hopefully it turns out how I envisioned it! I think it’ll be small but it needs a fair amount of quilting.

      The pocket was an optional item included in the pattern, along with the keyfob loops. She also lists alternate ways to attach handles if you don’t want to use her method shown in my photos. Some people use grommets or normal hardware with clips.
