Finished Mesmerize. It's striking. I used the quilt pattern designed by Natalia Bonner & also used some of the same fabrics she used in her quilt -- Basic Grey by Moda. I loved the look of her quilt so much I didn't want to change it too much. I also sent it to Natalia in Utah for her to do the long-arm quilting for me -- she did a great job.
That's Bob hidden behind the quilt -- he's the best quilt holder ever!

A tote bag to be used with a walker -- made if for a friend.

This could be my new favorite baby quilt to make -- I simply cut strips of varying widths using very cute, retro-inspired fabrics, sewed them all together in a pleasing arrangement & machine quilted 1/4" along both sides of each seam. Fun, quick & easy to make!

My friend gave me the pattern for a beach bag -- & also gave me the black, plastic mesh material. I made this for someone who wanted a black & white beach bag. It was fun to make -- goes together easily. The plastic mesh material is easy to sew. Some of the seams are quite thick -- next time I make one, I will use a "denim" needle & also a "jean-a-ma-jig."
I used "eyeglasses" fabric for the inside. The bag boasts 12 pockets -- 6 inside & 6 outside -- very handy!
My friend made me a beach bag so I used that as a reference to help with putting the bag together.
I use my bag not for the beach but rather to hold some of my craft items -- books, crochet hooks, yarn, etc.
