    Latest projects

    Here are my latest projects. First is a very bright rag quilt for my teaching assistant. Next is a generous lap quilt for myself from perennials (LOVE that fabric!) using Jenny's jelly charm pattern and quilted in the ditch. Then I made a tote using the tutorial Rhonda posted a few weeks ago. It has been so much fun learning and getting better at quilting

      Here is what Rhonda posted a week or so ago: "There is a tutorial on youtube. Search "Lets quilt #26 and 27. This lady tells you how to cut it out and put it together with real good instructions. I don't use the fusible interfacing though I use a heavy duty interfacing and attach that to the outside fabric by sewing close to the edge of it before I ever put it together. I add something different to each tote I make. I probably would make a good enough tutorial without confusing everybody but I think this will give yall a good idea as to how I do it. Good luck to you all and anybody that has any questions just Private message me and I will help in any way I can. You will all be hooked like I am once you start making these.The are sew fun and asy you will love it. Hugs to all."

      I'm really into hand bags and totes so I'll be looking up these instructions soon!

            Beautiful quilts Marebare. I can't pick a favorite I like them both. Great job on the tote too. Very pretty. Don't you just love making them? It is addicting isn't it? We should start a tote swap in the future. There are several of us making them now. we should make 1 tote and everybody get a number for their tote and scramble the numbers and whatever number you get you get that tote. Being careful not to get your own number that is and you are responsible for your own s/h.We may have to rethink the overseas ones though. I think it would be neat not knowing what you are going to get. Oh well just a thought. Hugs

                  Oh Rhonda, I like your idea! Let's see what Suzi thinks, she's our coordinator for swaps. She's done them so she knows all the ins and outs of them. Okay? See ya later, sweet taters! Sam
