What's Up Monday

Since I'm not home and do not have access to my design wall, my things I'm working on are not up the wall but in my lap/bag. So today I went to a quilt shop near here to see and get an idea of what is popular here. I don't know about you but I have found that when visiting shops in different parts of the country, what is being offered as classes and projects changes. 
One thing that I have not seen or did not notice around home is this bag.

This bag requires no sewing on the machine, just little hand sewing for tacking. What a perfect project to work while here at the hospital.

The pattern suggest using a Bali Pop or Jelly Roll. Did not see one that I like so I decided to buy some fabric and cut it into 2 1/2" strips. Now I have to update my Stash Report (needs it badly). I must of been subconsciously thinking about the what my daughter likes in colors for the babies because see  the new pair of socks I made. 

Gee, they are the same colors.
Like these so much better than the last pair.

Last pair.

I have also been working on my Little Birdie quilt blocks and the Dresden Plate

I now take my computer to the hospital so I able to write this post while here,which means I need to find or think of things to write about. Going to go through the pictures on my iPhone, heck I have over 500. I have pictures from past show and tells and quilts show along with ones from the farm. Plenty of material to pick from.
Till next time

  2. Which quilt shop did you visit and what difference did you notice? Since you're visiting/waiting in my area I'm curious. I think you're right different regions have different tastes. It must be getting close to babies time, hope the delivery is quick and safe for all.

  3. love the dresdan plate in the bottom photo..........hope the computer isn't too bad..........

  4. Anxious to see your sew-less bag. Like the colors you selected, nothing wrong with a second project...entirely different I might add..using the same. The second pair of socks are really cute. Sandi


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
