Crazy Quilt

The ladies who work in our quilt room at the Senior Center finished the Crazy Quilt this week.  It's hanging up in the big room and is our current fundraiser.  Come visit the Center and check it out.
We also started our new project.  We're making denim totebags.  Come learn to make one or order one for yourself.

Have a peaceful Sunday!

I'm hoping to have a good day today.  For the last few days, I've been busy sewing.  I finished one Memory Quilt and mailed it.  (It's 46" by 58".)  I'm almost through enlarging a Memory Quilt and finished tying the Crazy quilt for the Senior Center.  Don't you think I'm due for a break? lol 
My next project will be a raggy tote; it's an order for the Center.  Then, I have two t-shirt quilts to start.  I will post a photo of the latest Memory Quilt; it's a generous lap quilt size.  I haven't taken photos of my other projects.  I will make sure to take photos of the Crazy Quilt; it is a fundraiser or the Center.  Bye for now!

More Totes!

I love making tote bags, especially Market Bags.  These normally have no pockets, so easy, easy.  I saw a pattern the other day for a market bag made from animal feed sacks.  I finally found someone to furnish six bags; I told her I would make one for her.  Well, I made two and I believe that's all I'll do, lol.  My machine doesn't like the vinyl; but they were easy, easy, especially since I used webbing for the straps.  Here is a photo of the two I made.  (I'll donate the other one, plus the 4 other bags, to our Senior Center.)  Hopefully, someone else will love making them.
