I must say right off the bat a big thank you to Kim at Peach Quilting for allowing me to join the Quilting 4 Pleasure blogring and for getting the code on my template!!! So appreciative, Kim!
The photo is of a little scrap bag I made yesterday. I had found the pattern (from Oceanlake Designs) at a quilt shop earlier this week and just HAD to make one. Also that adorable tape-measure fabric jumped in my arms too. I wanted to get a quick one done as a prototype--thought they would make great little gifts for my quilt buddies. A couple of years ago my guild made tons of scrap bags to sell at our Boutique at the quilt show and they were cute too. But this new and improved (note the title "Scrap Sack 2") has a little pocket inside as well as a scissors leash and a nifty little scallop trim. The pincushion is weighted with polystyrene pellets so it sits atop the sewing table without sliding. This evening we will be attending the wedding reception of a longtime friend's son and his bride. The weather has gone all November on us so I'll be dragging out the long dress coat--the one that gets worn about once a year LOL!
Back to our originally scheduled program...
