My six Arabesque bags were fun to do. I still have piles of fabrics on the floor which would be perfect for this pattern. Buddy Melissa gave me a charm pack of Doe, a new fabric line by Carolyn Friedlander. Apparently I wasn't "done" with bags and had to turn this charm pack of 5" squares into an Aeroplane Bag, a great pattern by Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness. I love this pattern and love how this bag turned out! Look at the reverse of this bag equally cute!
this quilt has finally been completed. The back was another great reason to work on my Sashiko quilting. And what I am learning is that I must use wool batting - it so nicely highlights the stitching and is so easy to needle. And now? I have no excuses: I must organize my studio and put away and be thoughtful about what I want to do next!
