Last weekend I got to go away with some fantastic ladies and spend the whole long weekend sewing. Even though a stomach flu meant I had to bail for a day, I still got so much done and had an amazing time. It wasn't until the last day that I realized that everything I brought to work on was pink.
Pink baby girl quilt-
I guess after this quilt, I just wasn't done with plus quilts. Truthfully, I'm still not sure I'm done with them. There may still be a third in my future- one to keep.
I went to the retreat with the blocks done. I spent the first day sewing together the blocks, basting, quilting and attaching binding.
Yet Another Super Tote-
I love my Super Tote. Love it. It is perfect for traveling. It holds my wallet, a planner, a knitting project, a book, my big camera and an iPad comfortably. But, I don't have to carry all that around everyday. I needed something just a little bit smaller. So, I used the same pattern but just printed it out at 85%. Except the straps- I left those full size.
So far, it seems like the absolute perfect size.
And pink piping, straps, zipper facing and pockets. Ellery is thrilled that now my purse matches the purse I made her for Christmas.
Granny Square Quilt-
After I finished both of those projects, I started a new quilt. Pink, of course. I'm using the leftovers from Anna's Christmas quilt to make a quilt for Ellery. Since they share a room, I love it when they have quilts made from different patterns but using the same fabrics. That way they match but aren't too matchy. Right?
