Busy Performing Miracles

Last week I posted this picture as one of the piles I needed to sort through and put away
These scraps are now 4 SewPowerful purse kits, and I know have enough to kit maybe 5 or 6 more.  If you are thinking this isn't much of a miracle, each purse has 11 pattern pieces, all of which are interfaced.  So even though these are not yet purses, the miracle has indeed been worked.  Stay tuned for progress next week!

My second miracle involves the "going away" quilt for daughter Julie who is moving to Atlanta.  Not only did I get this quilt finished, I just picked it up yesterday from my favorite long-armer Frank Karls AND just finished binding it.
This quilt is 95" x 114" - large enough to think it has five sides while binding.  And large enough that I can't get a good picture of the whole thing.
These fabrics are Zen Chic's Modern Background Luster.  I bought two jelly rolls and love how these fabrics play with one another.  Can you see the detail of Frank's "BasketWeave" pantograph quilting?  It's beautiful.  The back is a pure white.  
Just one more detail shot because this quilt is so beautiful.  We are telling ourselves that Julie is only a plan-ride away, but it's going to be incredibly difficult, especially for her father, to say goodby to her.  And her quilt!  At least we'll be able to sleep under it when we visit.
