Another week….what have I done? Well, I had so much fun with the first Lickety Split bag, that I made another one, just for me. On this one I made the handles just a bit longer so that when they are tied the bag is long enough to be a cross body bag which I prefer to just on the shoulder. And, again, I had the fabric and lining set aside from way long ago, and added a ponytail holder and button as a closure.
Next up was to work on my Michael Miller Challenge for the Modern quilt Guild. Two years ago I saw this block on Flickr and just loved it…so I got the book with the pattern and did nothing with it until this week. My idea was to make 3 of the flower blocks and then make it into a table runner. I started and got this far and then discovered a problem…I did not know how to sew the next piece in.
After sewing in piece 5, you need to sew piece 6 as an angled line, and I don’t know how to do that. I guess that I could make 5,6,and 7 as unit and then put it in, which means that I need to be awful careful about lining it up, but is there another way? Suggestions please!
Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Be inspired by all of the wonderful work going on!
