So, Now that my machine is happily stitching away, I wanted to talk fabric with you. I was a very very good girl last year in the fabric buying department. See, all my money had to go to paying off my Big beautiful Bernina, so I couldn't buy fabric with the wild abandon that I did while I lived in Australia and had an APO. Not that I need an APO here in Texas. Anyway, last month a bunch of new fabric lines were released so I bought some lovely new fabric. It is all gorgeous. I am in the process of uploading it to my Fabric Flickr so it will be available for you to select for your bags.
But I do know that this is very pretty fabric.
Cherrywood fabric. I think I bought a roll of their fabric and cut it into squares. There is also linen and flour sacking. I really like how I quilted it. I think this is my most simple quilting I have ever conducted on my quilts. I wanted it to be more masculine, so for the boarder I decided to try a loose interpretation of a Celtic knot.
|This quilt top is all finished. It is stacked and ready to quilt, but it will have to wait a bit since I don't know how I am going to quilt it. That is good because I can now return to my bags. I don't have very many left and after I am finished I need to decide if I really want to keep making the bags or just write some patterns and let you guys make them for yourselves. I am at a crossroads. I do like making the bags, but there is a great deal more to me than the bags. I will sleep on it some.|
