Another Comma tote bag

This one's for me! I can't bear to part with it, will be perfect for winter! Side A above, Side B below.
Same fabrics as before, Comma by Brigitte Heitland from Zen Chic for Moda. And this time I eyeballed the straight lines again for the quilting, but used the walking foot rather than the FMQ foot so the lines stayed straighter. 
A little pocket on the inside...and of course Bess had to get in on the shoot...
Must get on and finish the Comma quilt now, gotta love school holidays! Have eaten my Easter egg, finished the novel The Aviator's Wife and now can go out and do some autumn weeding (me being a seasonal gardener and all...I only weed once a season!)

Comma bag

Made from the same fabric as the quilt top I made a few weeks ago...Comma by Brigitte Heitland for Zen Chic for Moda, with a green dot fabric called Free Bird by MoMo for Moda...and using the Cherry Charm Pack pattern with a few adaptations by myself to make it into a bag...

Side A...

Side B...

Close up of the organic lines I used for quilting, shades of light and dark grey, black, orange and cream...

Modern flimsy

Just thinking about what to do for a border...
Is the pattern Charm Pack Cherry from the Fat Quarter Shop, made in fabric range Gamma by Briggitte Heitland for Zen Chic by MoMo for Moda, plus a green dot from the Free Bird range also by MoMo.

(It looks a bit puckered in places but it is just the way I chucked it on the floor for the photo)

Two baby quilts...

Two fun flimsies now finished!! These two baby/cot quilts were fun and quick to make. 


This was made from a Moda charm pack of Mixed Bag by Studio M. Striaight line quilting in the centre panel with large pebble free motion quilting on the solid teal border. A warm and soft dotty flannel on the back. 

Made with a fabric pack from Thumpacat Fabrics, my own design for the quilt; straight line quilting that runs into the border. Also has a soft flannel on the back. 

And Rumbles wanted to check it out of course!
