Appliquéing the birds on to this quilt top and then sewing the two pieces together was my goal for ALYOF this month.
This goal has been successfully completed.
I am thinking of doing some big stitch around the birds in the same colors used for the applique,for now I just sewed around each bird with the machine.
The best part is that not only did I meet my goal,I also exceeded it! The quilting is also done (minus the big stitch I am thinking of adding). The backing fabric is a aqua print with tiny little birds all over it,picked up at Joann's last year.
Next up is my Big City Bag for this month,the Go Go Bag. Also a successful finish!
The inside is the same fabric used for the flap. This is a hand dyed fabric that my mom gave me several years ago. So I do not know the designer or any info about it,other than she purchased it sometime in the 80's or 90's.
The back side has a zipper pocket,as well as one on the inside of the bag. I just happened to have two zippers in the perfect colors to go with the bag!
One more photo just because I am loving how nicely this purse turned out. There were a few spots that were troublesome but only because my machine does not like to sew through any bulk at all. Other than that,this bag went together smoothly.
My third finish for the month,the four barn bags that I wanted to get done.
The bag of the Month Club,the Butterfly Sling Bag. Still looks like this for two reasons one,my printer is on the fritz,only printing parts of the page. The front page you can see in the photo is the only page that printed in its entirely. The rest of the pages have a lot of partial photos and words. Secondly,there is a lot of bulk to this purse,and as stated above my machine does not play nice whenever that situation arrises. So for now it has been put on the back burner...
All in all,this has been a very productive month especially considering is was a short one and a week of it was spent on vacation.
