Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.  I was busy sewing.  Above is the Zig Zagging Along table runner that I made.  The pattern is by Cut Loose Press and can be purchased at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  It was really fun and easy.  Click on the picture to get a better view.
A couple of years ago I took a bag class with Lee Anne at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  When I showed my daughter, she liked the bag so much that she took it home with her.  Then last week, she asked me to make another one using Michigan State fabrics.  So I did! The pattern is Barbados Bag by Pink Sand Beach Designs.  If you get a chance I recommend you take a class from Lee Anne.  I know I didn't have nearly as much trouble figuring out the instructions when I took her class.  This time it took me forever!

If we wait too long, the second time around does seem more difficult. Sometimes I swear the instructions change themselves when I'm not looking. Glad you got there in the end though. Love that fun table runner. The design and the colors just scream happy day!
