Who doesn't love bags. We collect them. We store them. We forget where we put them. We keep extra in our cars, our desk drawers, stuffed into the back of cabinets. But what one really needs is a project bag. A bag to keep our projects neat when we are not working on them or have to travel with them. This past weekend my guild held a Vinyl Faced Project Bag workshop. It was my first time working with vinyl and it was surprisingly easy.

Each year on its birthday my guild has a party complete with cake and a present for each member. My present was the pattern BlockStep by Robin Pickens for Color and Quilt. I used ombre fabric from V and Co. This fabric is to die for. It is gorgeous and believe me I have saved every single scrap of it. I will be using this fabric in every project to come for the next several months.
Do you ever have a charm pack that you don't want to cut up? Fabric that is too cute to use? I had one such charm pack. This quilt pattern was the perfect way to show off the fabric and not have to cut into the pattern too much. Oh My Stars by Pat Sloan is an easy quilt to put together.
A fun trip to Walmart resulted in this adorable bunny fabric. I have glasses for driving at night and sunglasses. The cases were hard plastic and took up space in my purse and added to the weight. These soft glass cases were the perfect way to keep some bunnies in my purse and store my glasses in a safe place.
I participated in Pat Sloan's Splendid Sampler sew along. The first twenty blocks were issued free and the rest one had to purchase the book. I enjoyed most of the blocks but some were not to my liking. I ended up with about 20 blocks and decided to add in some of my own to make this heart sampler for a friend.
