So, for I think the fifth year in a row, here is my pledge:
I, Kate, an easily distracted sewist and quilter (squirrel), pledge to quilt or sew for at least 20 minutes every day of the month of February, 2017. In doing so, I hope to get something (really anything ) DONE, reducing the amount that my family will have to dispose of later. I will also endeavor, as far as possible, to use the supplies I already have on hand, to complete my projects. In this way, I hope to further reduce my materials at hand.
Last year I completed this bag. And it was entirely from my stash.
I obviously need a new handbag, this one is so last year.
I need to get a couple of tote bag samples finished, and today, I got off to a good start for the month.
I cut the fabric for the back of the first bag, cut some batting and did some quilting. I was looking through my thread stash and found the perfect thread. I think it followed me home from a quilt show a few years ago.
Doesn't everyone have a spool of thread in shades of hot pink, turquoise, purple, and royal blue?
It disappears on the Laurel Burch fabric.
The back of the bag is a solid piece of fabric, and I think I might have some fun and quilt the whole thing with this.
