Working hard...

Hello!! I hope that you are having a wonderful day!

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. 
 The Lining: Honestly, I didn't want to buy any more fabric for the lining for this bag. I am going to be using this bad to hold all of the snacks for the trip we are going to be taking. is going to get dirty. I decided that the lemons were perfect for the middle.
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.


  1. They are gonna be super fun bags, I love the cheery colors! The lines don't have to be straight, no one needs to know they were meant to be straight :)))
    Ok, I looked up the link to the Leah Day videos on Youtube for you:
    Hope it helps!
