A little bag

My sister asked me to make a little bag for her to use.  Something big enough just to put her phone, some $$ and car keys.  So I made this little casual bag.  I quilted the background and sew a little Sun Bonnet Sue on it.  I did both sides the same.  This is a very simple bag to make.  A one-day project!!

This quilt was given to my mother- in-law on Saturday for her 70th birthday and also for Mother's Day!!!  Her birthday is always a double celebration!  One present for two occasions!
It's a relief to be able to get all the work done on time including washing the quilt!!  This is a queen size quilt but it still can fit my king size bed!   Below is a picture of the back of the quilt. I did as much quilting as I possibly can despite what little time I had!! LOL

 YAY! Finished all the quilting!!!!!  I am sooooo relieved!!  Binding to go and I need to wash the quilt before Saturday!!  Another major hurdle is that there is no water supply since Sunday!!! ................I hope the water supply comes back ASAP

My machine quilting skill is still lacking but I just wanted to show the pattern close up!!

Not quite there yet with the quilting.  Did stitching all along the ditch.  I am way behind in my schedule!!  Had to take another week off to attend hubby's grandmother's funeral.  Her death happened during Holy week so had to wait till after Easter Sunday for the burial.  She was 98 years old.  A sweet, caring and loving lady.  Rest in peace, Nanny.

So now, I am in the sewing room every chance I get!!  hhahahhaa
