Dot Dash Dot bag by Sara Lawson. Sara is a Chicagoan and experiencing some success with her printed patterns and a book she has coming out. I have used two of her PDF patterns, including the Aeroplane Bag. Sara's patterns are pretty, well-tested, and include excellent directions. I can't wait to get started on this one!
Chicago Modern Quilt Guild's Teen Living outreach. It was tied at the August meeting, and I just this week channel-quilted the outer three borders using a heavy-weight thread (17wt) on the top, and a thinner thread (50 wt) in the bottom and a lengthened stitch. The quilting is more noticeable, and I like this effect. My machine seemed to like this as well. It is now waiting for binding by Eileen!
