Quilt Outing

It was so good to get out of the house today after being cooped up inside for almost a week. (The only time I have been out of the house in the last week was for a checkup at the doctor and a quick trip to the grocery store. ) Many thanks to my friend Becky who came and picked up me for a trip to Sweet Home Quilts. It was so much fun to get out with a fellow quilter. We enjoyed chatting on the drive over, quilts, books, school, and just life in general. We both had a list, and I think Becky stuck to hers better than I did. I saw a cute bag pattern the minute we walked in the door that just called my name. The bag is made from a jelly roll, unfortunately they didn't have any that I liked, so I had to create my own jelly roll. I selected Shangri La by Moda. I can't wait to get started on it. I love to make bags, and this pattern is a really good size, not too big and not too small.
I think my trip was a little much, I had to have a nap when I came home. There won't be any sewing for me today, but maybe tomorrow.

Hope you didn't over do it today, Brenda! It was good to see you, but don't over do it.

Can't wait to see your Jelly Bag from the Shangri La fabric - I haven't seen one yet that I didn't love regardless of the fabric choice!

Glad to hear you two were out and about! I saw that pattern and admired it as well!! Bunny Hill pattern I believe. Missed you this weekend, hope to see you soon. AND DON'T OVER DO IT...LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!

Oh, I just made a bag from this pattern. No pictures yet, but I used a charm pack instead of jellyrolls. I had to do some modification of sizes but it came out very nicely. Of course, when my daughter saw it she loved it and I ended up giving it to her.
