Just one more purse...

Friend Nancy turned me on to this fabric - I made an Arabesque purse for her last week from this fabric. Another friend, someone who has suffered greatly this winter, is a perfect candidate for this happy purse. I'll give it to her tomorrow. Quilting on Soft and Stable is easy, and the quilting makes the purse that much sturdier.

Wintersection has come home.  I hung it in the living room and then promptly took it down.  I had fun making this piece, I'll find a wall in the studio or closet for it, but I don't love it anymore.  Which is ok. At yesterday's guild meeting I was talking with a couple of guildsters about education and made the point that kids must learn rules before they can break them.  A basic rule in quilting is that corners should be 90 degree angles.  I chose to break that rule.  And I don't think I will ever make that choice again...

You are the best bag lady out there LOL! As for the quilt... it has good bones. I have ideas...

I think it would square up nicely if you chose to do that. Interested in DP's ideas too...

Your quilt is beautiful! What is it you don't like about the unsquare corners? Does it hang oddly and unevenly? LSS has a good idea, if it really bothers you. Square it up and rebind. I finally bought some byAnnie's Soft and Stable, but haven't used it yet. Any tips?

I kind of hope you don't make any actual changes to this quilt. Keep it as a reminder of the rule you broke - why you broke it and why you don't care to again. (Just my two cents.)
