Bags, This 'n That

I'm surprised this week that I've actually managed to catch up with most of my swap commitments, it's a good feeling to be up to date. Now, if only I could get the housework caught up with, a spring clean is definitely on the books.

I had plans to finish the quilting on the Disappearing 9-Patch today but got caught up helping out with the cattle. Never a dull moment around here.

I did get this bag finished, had it all nicely stitched and was admiring my handiwork when I discovered that I'd stitched a flower-head pin inside the lining.

It looks aqua here but is a blue/grey colour in real life.

I also finished this months block for the Home Sweet Home BOM I'm working on, the block was supposed to be two birds. Every time I attempt to applique birds they look like something from a horror movie ...... beware the killer birds!! My quilt will be a little different to all the others as my block contains a flower garden.

This is a picture of the blocks I've completed so far. This quilt is in country/autumn colours. Once again I'm only using fabric from my stash (with a little from a friend when I need a better colour).

Quilt is looking good. You have a good eye for colour.
