Sorry there wasn't/isn't a Quilt Monday today. We had my Grandpa's funeral today and our weekend has consisted of helping set up for the service, picking up family members for airports and just getting together as a family. In all that, we even had a birthday. Our oldest turned 14. I can't believe I am a mother of a 14yr old! Am I that old? Don't answer that lol.
The service was lovely, thank you all for you kind words regarding my Grandfather's passing. At 98yrs old, every year we had with him was a gift
Saturday my sister in law Erica, mom and cousin Melody decided we needed to bag. They went off for a quick fabric pick-up to Hamels, and don't worry, I'm staying strong on the fabric diet!
Our pattern of the night, the Buttercup Bag. Erica decided to make her's the regular size with a fabric strap. The rest of us went with the larger bag and handles
Just over 3 hours later, we had 4 bags finished! I love how super easy this pattern is. We did change it a bit and added some pellon to the lining to stiffen the bag up a bit more. We also changed the pleats in the front of the bag and added an inverted pleat to the middle instead of having the pleats go all in the same direction.
The bags were so quick, mom decided to sew the binding on the quilty I snuck in the other day at work
And Erica decide we needed to make another bag so her she is prepping the pieces of a Phoebe Bag
Stay tuned to see how those turn out
