Unfortunately I did not get a picture of my bag. :( Thankfully our guild president, Melissa Dunworth, did take a picture of all our bags, so I do have some proof. Mine is the bag in front on the far right. Behind it is the orange bag I got back in the exchange. :) I do have a close up of that picture.
Adding a zipper was not as difficult as I thought it would be. I'm glad our guild had this swap so I would be "forced" to get over my fear and give this a try.
|October Finish Party|
My brother is going to be a dad soon, so I started a new quilt for my niece. :) This will definitely be my finish for November because I want to finish it before I go down to CA to meet her. <3 I shared this picture on instagram, but I don't think I have on my blog.
The fabric is from a Riley Blake layer cake. I learned the hard way that not all the squares were perfectly square. Halfway through I had to trim and square up every square on ALL 4 SIDES! What a pain. It's my first time using a layer cake. In the future I will double check their blocks before I start.
The patterns are cute though, and the fabric is so soft and buttery. That makes it nice to work with. I'm taking part in a quilt along online to make this quilt. I love that I can have my iPad in my sewing room to watch, pause and replay the videos while I quilt.
Be sure to link up your finishes with Melissa & Shanna. Today I am fighting a cold my husband brought home with him this weekend and I'm working on some hand applique while we watch football and movies. :( I don't to work on the baby's quilt while I am sick, and honestly I am more likely to make mistakes while I am sniffling, sneezing and coughing.
