Snowy Days = Sewing Days

Winter has blasted through the Midwest this past week, and there were two days when we just stayed in--perfect for sewing! I finally assembled the top of my Prairie Braid quilt for DH and started hand quilting it during the "Survivor" finale last night. It's going to be a very generous throw, with enough length to pull up to the chin and tuck around the toes.
I also started a bag for myself with scraps from the braids and also using some of the fabric I bought in Dallas two weeks ago. I also got the pattern there, "Isabella" by Sew Unique Creations. So far this bag has been fun and easy to make. I can imagine having one for every season. The next one I'd make would be in blue and green batiks!

I love all the colors in the quilt and the tote bag. I will have to look for that pattern myself...which store did you get it from?

Your quilt looks great and love the hand bag--I can see you wanting more!

Thank you, ladies! (I think you are the only two who read my blog--LOL) Debi, I got the bag pattern at the Quilt Asylum. I wish it had been one of the shops closer to you!
