Piecing and quilting away

Last week we had new windows installed in part of the house so while the guys were working away I had a great excuse to stay in my craft room after they installed that one. So I went through my tub of fabrics I have just for making purses and pulled out a bunch to cut out. I ended up cutting parts for 15 purses! I am getting ready for fall craft shows so it will be wonderful to have those ready to go. But it will take me quit a bit of time. Here you see I am in the quilting stage for the front and back of some. Then I will quilt the linings too before beginning the final assembly.  So today more quilting :-)

Then I had to satisfy my craving for piecing by cutting and seing up this simple little 36x38 baby quilt. I saw this idea here while perusing pintrest last week. While I was at Jo Ann Fabrics on Sunday I found these fat quarter prints in their clearance section for a real bargain.

Last week I also had the piecing craving so I whipped up this little quilt. It measures about the same as the one above. 

Joining  Freemotion at the River and Let's Bee social this week. I have posted their links on my left side bar. I wonder what goodies we get to see this week.  Also linking to FortWorth Fabric this week.


  1. What fun projects Vicki and I'm like you.....I'm craving a little fun/fast piecing today!! How neat that you are quilting so many purse pieces on your long arm.....I want to see more!

  2. Love your baby quilts. They are so pretty. I think I'm going to try both of these for Project Linus. Beautiful

  3. Your purses (and the baby quilts) are going to be fabulous.

  4. I can never get enough of baby quilts.... and yours are sew sweet! Looks like you had fun piecing the day away!
