Blocks, blocks, blocks and a Bag!

Hi everyone,

Over the last week or so I have been trying to catch up on a couple of things…I am in a Bee with the Quilt Club Australia Facebook group.

Feathered Star

This is the block for August, a Feathered Star. Quite a time consuming block, which is why I put if off for so long but it looks great when it is finished.

Now I only have to catch up with September and October!

Next up was the QAL…very naughty of me to be behind in the QAL I am co-hosting!

Block 5 - Jack in the Box

Block 7 - Another Star

Block 9 - Dutch Rose

I still have Tippencanoe to do which is Jess’ latest block and I need to get going on the tute for this weeks block!

I have been so tempted lately to start something new! So instead of starting something big I thought I would make something that could be finished quickly!

Tote bag 2

And it was so nice to take a break and do something fairly quick and easy!

Sorry the photos are horrible, I took them last night so our friend could take the bag first thing this morning.

Tote bag 1

The outside fabric is Sandi Henderson Secret Garden and the Lining is Aqua Chevrons by Riley Blake.

I will definitely be making more of these bags so I will get some better pictures with the next couple! And I will try to remember where I got the pattern from – it was a freebie!

Love all your blocks but your Feathered Star is indeed a STAR! It's absolutely gorgeous but I'm sure it was a ton of work. Your bag is fun and I agree, it's so satisfying to start and finish something in one day.
