Have even gotten them all quilted and am stitching bindings!

All Quilted!

And a friend asked me a for a little red pouch so I delivered! As I put it together with no pattern I was very pleased to realize that I have mastered my understanding of bag making and lining. It tends to take me forever to wrap my head around these things. I can follow directions and have it turn out right over and over but now I finally “get” it!

I love the lining fabric from the Hello Betty fabric line.

    Gorgeous! I absolutely love the baby quilts! It’s fabric like that that makes me long to live in a city that appreciates (and stocks!) beautiful fabric. I totally understand what you are saying about bags and linings, I still don’t “get it” so I’m sticking to instructions for now.

    What a wonderful and pleasing sensation to “get it.” I’m jealous! Lining is something that still sort of eludes me, but yours is beautiful.
