YOU CAN MAKE THIS BAG

 When I was at the Attic Window Quilt Shop earlier this week I noticed this adorable bag.  Kathy B. made it as a sample for the shop.  The Sassy Tote Bag pattern is available at the shop.  I think I have to make this one.
 It is raining and dreary here in west Michigan today, so I went to my sewing room in the basement and made some blocks.  The above block is from the book Modern Bee and is for Jill who is the Hive's queen bee this month.  I hope she likes the fabrics.
I spent the better part of the afternoon going through my scrap pile looking for just the right corner stones for the Charity Quilt blocks that I showed you on my previous post.  I finally came up with these.  This was not an easy decision.  I would find a fabric that would be perfect only to discover there was not enough fabric for the nine blocks in the quilt.  Of course, I had plenty of fabric available on those that were too dark, or not enough contrast, etc.  I do like this pattern, but think next month I'll try a different design, maybe something more conducive to helping me shrink my pile of scraps.  I'm going to follow along with Alamosa Quilter.  She has a BOM quilt along that is sure to reduce my scrap pile and also make a beautiful Charity quilt.  Be sure and check Alamosa Quilter on Feb. 17 as that is when directions will be posted for the Goose On The Loose BOM.
