wips on saturday:)

i'm working on several projects at once. not a shocker. i finally took some pictures. pictures aren't that great but i'm having fun. :)
this is a pattern from modern patchwork magazine 

this is my own design. it's going to be a wedding gift for my best friend

both are just laid out (no sewing yet) but as of this posting both tops have been sewn.

i've never done this before but i'm linking up to wip wednesday at freshly pieced.

i can't get the formatting right on this post today.

i also made a poochie bag by happy zombie.  i modified it slightly since my fat quarters were only 21"

this was a lot of fun and it only took a couple of hours (i'm not that fast a sewer or presser).  i also made my pocket horizontal instead of vertical.  when i make the bag again i probably will not do that.  i may add some interfacing as well.  i really love the bag. its a great size for me.  thanks monica!


  1. I love your star quilt! Both are very pretty :)

  2. I like the fabric in your star.

  3. I really love the star. The batiks worked out really well with the purple. The wedding quilt will have a nice affect when it is finished. It will be nice to see it when it is done.

  4. That star looks great! I love large designs like this. They have such a fun impact. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday!

  5. Thanks for the link to the bag instructions - cute!

  6. I like the maroon and reds in the quilt.
    I love the bag too.
    I made a bag from my mind for my daughter. Didn't turn out the way I pictured it in my mind, but still came out well.
    It's pictured in my post today.

  7. Popping over from WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced - so nice to discover your blog! The star quilt is beautiful, I love the colours. And your bag is super cute - thanks for the link!

  8. thanks everyone for the wonderful comments!
