This week, we decided to make the Big Tote Bag that is found in the April edition of McCall's Quilting magazine. Here is a picture of all our machines set up at Jen's house.
Then we got to work laying out our charm packs...it's not as easy as you would think! Here Kristen (standing) and Susan are contemplating the layout.
Here are the girls (from left to right: Jen, Susan Kristen), working hard sewing the charms together.
And ta-da! Here is my finished tote! I used the Zippity Do Dah charm pack from Moda. This is a BIG bag! It's going to be perfect for my quilting retreat next month!
I have been sewing this week, since the last time I posted. But I can't show pictures! I'm working on a couple secret projects that I will be taking to retreat next month. I'll take pictures though and show them after I get back. I did finish the third month of the Thimbleberries BOM. So far, I'm staying up to date with this BOM!! Woohoo!!
Hope you are having a quilty weekend and enjoying some sunshine...I know I am!!
