Sundays are for….

At least that’s what I did so far today…

A couple of weeks ago, I was browsing different crafty blogs, and stumbled upon In Color Order. She has a great blog, with lots of tutorials. I was taken by the cool/warm quilts and decided that I wanted to try quilting again. A baby quilt though.. nothing too big and crazy.

After browsing other people’s projects, and going through all the tutorials, I decided on a green/brown color scheme. I was also really inspired by this beautiful quilt.

Some hours later found me with these fabrics.


And after cutting and sewing all the blocks, I laid them out to look like this:
(I messed up on the upper and lower right hand sides.. I did fix it before I sewed it all together)

I forgot about it for a couple of weeks, focusing on finishing my Color Affection Shawl.. but today I dragged it out and finished the top.

Tomorrow, I’m going to get the backing fabric and batting.. and somehow figure out how to actually quilt this thing… it’s going to be a present for Nico’s nephew at some point.. maybe for his 1st birthday.

Since was too lazy to go out to JoAnn Fabric’s today to look for the backing fabric, I dug though the fabric stash and found a pretty combo to make a project bag. I used this tutorial from In Color Order.

I do like to try out different tutorials and ways of making little drawstring bags.. and I really like this one. It’s super easy and didn’t take too long.

I used coffee fabric left over from another bag I made, and used a light blue floral for the lining and ties.


I think it’s really cute, and I already want to make more. This one is going to be my new sock project bag. 😀
