Today is Memorial Day and a great day for relaxing.... OR QUILTING :) Look at these beautiful lilacs blooming by the barn... smell SO good.
Al and I will be getting together with family later in the day but right now I thought I would work on a few projects.
Jenn and I were at a retreat in March and both made a Mondo Bag (from Quiltsmart). She wasn't happy with her interior. We decided that I would make another one, in colors of her choice and I would keep the one she made (it matches on of my quilts perfectly so I could store that in it).
These are the ones we made on retreat... the one she gave me is the pink one.
For her new one, I'm using solids that she picked out of my storage bin. The lining is one I bought on a trip.. it has most of the colors she had picked. I have two of the four panels done... you iron the squares onto the marked interfacing then fold and stitch. How easy is that?!
This is my other project for today... when I get bored working on the bag. It's a cross-stitch piece I found at a goodwill store. Won't it make a cute center for a quilt room pillow? After all the work someone put into it, it had to come home with me (and for 99 cents!).
