Fabric Plastic Bag Holder

How's everyone doing?  I'm keeping busy sewing.  I made a few fabric plastic bag holders to add to my Craft Mall Booth and to list in etsy.  Can't believe I had never made them before.  Of course, I "found" the fabric in my stash, lol.
I made nine; then started on a custom order.  My customer wants a nautical theme raggy quilt for her DH.  She also wants it by Valentine's Day.  Even though it will be put together in a raggy style, I'm making the blocks traditional.  I'll post a photo as soon as it's finished.  Wish me luck with the time line.

Good Morning!

Good Morning!  It's going to rain today, but it's not going to keep me in, lol.  Today is Wednesday, so it's quilt day for me.  Our Senior Center has a group that meets every Wednesday; we either work on a hand quilt or another project.  Some ladies are finished up a Southern Lady quilt; I'm currently working on crazy quilt blocks.  These are done with fancy fabrics so I'm sewing them together by hand.  If I ever can figure out the new photo posting here, I'll post photos when the quilt is completed.  Have a good day!

Framed Memory Quilts

Good Morning!  How is your year going so far?  So far, my year is doing great!  I forgot how much I love to do crazy quilt blocks.  After making the seven memory quilts, I had some small scraps left.  So, I made several small wallhangers and framed them.  I did either a crazy quilt heart or simple crazy quilt block.  Then, I went to resell shops and bought some frames.  My last customer loved them!  I would love to make more.  If you have clothes you would like made into memory quilts, I can use the scraps to make you the same framed blocks.  Or, I can make a block from current fabrics.  Wouldn't that make a pretty picture on the wall?  Here are some of the frames:
