While traveling in the car, and sitting around talking and eating over the course of the weekend, I managed to finish Jessie's quilt for Christmas.
But really, all I had to do yet was sew the binding on.
The top is made from vintage sheets sent to me by Jacquie, and it is backed in nice, warm flannel. It measures about 48" square.
And the silly girl tells me, as I am sewing on the binding - that's so pretty Mommy - can you make one just like it for me? hehe - I told her it was for a friend's babyshower for after the 1st of the year.
Then last night, I started on this for her for Christmas:
We'll see how this Messenger Bag holds up. I still have to finish the edges, put a strap on it, and some sort of closure. Complete with 2 compartments and 5 pockets. I lined this one in cotton, with fusible interfacing. I'm thinking I should have used 2 layers of home decorator fabric (which is what the stripe is) but oh well. For Tyler's, I'll try using home decorator fabric for both the outside and the lining. Since this one is from fabric found in my stash, if it only lasts to the end of the school year, I'm happy with it.
