I am working hard on the bag that I talked about in my previous posting. I posted the YouTube video from Missouri Star Quilt Company, and I am following them to the best of my ability.
Step 1: I really am not a huge fan of these colors...but I have put them together. I have had this jelly roll for over 5 years. It is TIME to use this!
|I am using all of the Reds from the City Weekend jellyroll. These are the strips all sewn together.|
|This is the only fabric that I LIKE for the lining that I already have.|
I am currently quilting this. Now, life keeps getting in the way of the quilting. I am doing straight lines down each strip. Four lines a strip.....48 lines total. I like it. It is fun, but man it is taking a long time. My 18 month old is trying to help, and that makes things a challenge. Let's just say that my lines are MOSTLY straight...we will call it Stra-vry. LOL. Slightly curvy. Mostly Straight.
I will be back with more pictures as I make more progress.
