Yesterday I went shopping after my doctor appointment looking for some new Capri’s – I’m not much of a shopper and I’m not sure when I visited the mall in Little Rock last – my doctor’s office used to be near that location and I visited the mall more frequently after the appointment to get in a little exercise and eat before the drive home – then he moved to a different location in Little Rock and I stopped visiting the mall as often. I went into Eddie Bauer and tried on some Capri’s and actually found several I liked that fit and as I was paying for them the check out gal asked me where I got my bag – she would like to find one like it – well she can’t – I made it! what a complement – I made it about 3 years ago from some fabric that I won from Vicki Welsh over at Field Trips in Fiber – Vicki she complemented the fabric so much!! Thought you would like to hear that. I offered your web address but she said she couldn’t make anything – not her talent. I remember the pattern had 3 sizes and I was thinking on the way home that I needed to make the smaller size as this one is a little big for me but I trade it off among my bags periodically anyhow as I love the fabric LOL. I made a larger one that I use for a tote bag some times too – but not the smallest one . I looked all through my patterns when I got home and can’t find it! Drat – why is it that when you get it in your head you want to find something that you can’t! Anyone recognize the pattern? I’m wondering it I traded the pattern away – I might have to find a new one.
I got the first border done on Lemoyne Stars Sunday night – it is nice quilting on a much smaller quilt! It goes so much faster! I haven’t come up with a name for this quilt – well have to think on that.
I have one side of the Granny quilts binding done – 3 more sides to go! I really like the way it looks. Someone asked what size do I cut my binding – 2.5 inches then fold in half. I know some like it smaller but I find this size easiest for me to work with. Linking to Esther’s blog today.
The print on the back really makes it hard to see the hand quilting – it might show up more after it is washed and dried – but it might not – we will see. The front is what matters right.
