Getting there

I am working on three bags and a quilt, as I said in my last post, for my girlfriend and her daughters.  These are the straps that will become the handles of the bags and I have to say I love the colours.

The quilt top, shown here folded in half over my door is ready to layer but first I have to piece the backing. 
 I have a lovely fabric that just needs a panel down the middle to make it big enough.  The panel is sewn, just simple chinese coins, so hopefully the backing will get done today and the bags will progress further.  I just have to fit sewing in around helping my husband with some filing and taking all of us and some friends to the movies later this afternoon.

 Wish me luck.  I really want to get these done so I can make another Popsicle to give away and then do some fun sewing for January before I get back to finishing off UFO's, the task I have set myself for the rest of the year!

  3. I love your fabric combination and I can't wait to see the finished quilt. Love the Popsicle also! You are so talented!!

    As an aside, I checked my settings and I am set up to receive emails and I have received a few in the past, but you are not the first person to tell me that I'm a "no reply". I don't know what the problem is. Sorry.
