Recently I started quilting again after seeing some fabric sheets that go in my printer and come out with mixed results in my case. After printing several of them out I’ve learned a few new tricks to make them look better, but anyway, I’m hooked on making pillows and bags, and have even started a memory quilt for my kids. So, when I told Jill Dennison of Filosofas World about the bag I just finished she wanted to see a photo of it. Well, after many attempts at getting a good photo, here are some of the shots, not my best work with the camera, but I just couldn’t convince that doggone bag that it should sit up and pose for me. Hope you like the photos. This bag is the first of many more to come! The pictures were found on Pinterest.
Kinda neat looking, huh? Don’t mean to toot my own horn on it, but after dropping my needle several times and finding it when it was stepped on, seated on, or just bit me when I stuck my hand in a pocket for some reason. That kinda smarts, ya know? But the quilting part if fun again after several years hiatus from holding that little needle. I am finding the process to be very calming again. Can’t exactly take a nap under the bag — well, I have a few times, but it’s not as comforting as the full sized blankets when it comes to keeping warm! Since I don’t have a lot of space here I’m using the quilt as you go method where each block is quilted and when they are stitched together after being quilted. It’s actually so much easier than the old traditional method of putting them in a frame and calling the neighbors to come in for a quilting party. Not as much fun, but easier~ Y’all have a great week now.
