This week was all about bags and pillows.
Some patchwork stripes (I used the quilt-as-you-go method.)
While I was quilting these, I didn't cut the thread at the end of each quilting line - I just lifted the pressure foot and the needle and turned the panel around. This method is probably old news but I just discovered it today and was really happy to cut down on the number of long threads.
Here is a bag with patchwork squares on one side:
and The Ghastlies on the other (can you guess who this one is for?)
And finally, inspired by all the recent dresden posts:
I'm not sure why but it has an 80s vibe to me (definitely not intentional!)
I also finished the binding for the patchwork pillow - now I just need to get the right size pillow insert (this was "borrowed" from a pillow off my couch.)
Oh, and I guess if I was going to use a stuffed animal in a blog hop post, I should have chosen a bunny and not a bear so what about this guy?!?
