I’ve been working on two projects this past week. The first is Amy Butler’s Weekender Bag. I bought the pattern last year and finally decided to tackle it (it’s kind of a right of passage amongst modern quilters). I still need to make the lining, and I’ll post about my experience with sewing the bag once I am done.
The fabric is Melody Miller’s “Ruby Star Sparkle” and the straps and cording are Michael Miller’s “Mirror Ball Dot”.
My second project is a Wonky House Log Cabin Quilt. These were bee blocks from the very first round of Bee Happy, so all I did was sew the blocks together finally.
I love all the details in these blocks and there is a lot of eye candy for a fussy-cut addict, like me. I want to add one more column of blocks, so I am going to have the newer Bee Happy ladies sew blocks when it is my month. Then it will encompass every member of the group.
I sent everyone a coveted swatch of Heather Ross fabric and then strips from my stash. It was fun to see what everyone came up with. I adore this funky Martian block by Natalie. I keep going back to look at it.
Alison’s block is very soothing and Zen. I want to live in THAT house!
The tutorial for the Log Cabin House block is right here. It’s such a fun bee block and a great stash-buster.
