A little More Progress Before I'm Off :)

Well, I'm all packed and ready to head up to the Panguitch Quilt Walk to teach tonight and tomorrow.  So excited!!!!   Everytime I go to teach it cracks me up how much "quilting" stuff I bring verses how much "personal" stuff I bring.   One bag for hair, makeup, and clothing, and everything else is for class :)   And speaking of that one bag, seeing it sitting here will all of that handmade goodness sure makes me want to make a handmade duffle bag.   Any suggestions of a good one you have made, preferably one that a beginner bag maker could pull off ???    3-D sewing still intimidates me ;)

And before I go, I am happy to report that I did make some progress on my curved sewing from Monday.  I pieced the inner and outer curves of all 100 plus pieced rings and just need to do some pressing now.   Then it will be trimming and then just two more pieces to add to each block :)  It's coming along!!

And along with that piecing, I also quilted up my Mosaic quilt and Sew Sampler quilt.   I am so excited to almost have these two quilts finished, those blocks had to wait around way to long to be put into quilt tops ;)    I was hoping to get the bindings on before I had to leave, but alas, it just didn't happen.  So they will have to wait for Monday ;)  But it's all good because while going through some pictures on the computer yesterday, I found a quilt that I finished last December that somehow I forgot to post.   So I can still share that finish for Friday, yippee ;)

I hope you are having a very Happy Quilting Day and I'll see ya tomorrow!!!
Pin It!


  1. Have fun on your adventure!!

  2. Lucky students! Have a great time:)

  3. Have a wonderful trip! I've made several duffle style bags, and given them away. I plan to do a tutorial on one for my part of a Christmas in July hop, if you aren't in a hurry. I think I also may have an older Butterick pattern for one that wasn't too hard. Email me if you want that number and I'll dig it out.

  4. I love the bags by Annie. Great directions and tips and I am always happy with the results.

  5. Cargo Duffle bag by Noodlehead is nice :)
    Have fun at your class!

  6. Have a fun weekend in your travels and teaching. I love the colors that I can see peeking at me from those curved pieces. Can't wait to see them all pressed and put together. --Andrea

  7. Go go Melissa. I love the bag. You are going to have a great time, and travel sassy


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
