It’s in the Bag

Happy (Inter)National Quilting Day!

Taking a break from my Hexagon quilt, I have decided to start on a small project for our upcoming 2nd Wedding in 2 weeks: Bean Bags for corn hole.

My new personal mantra has become “work with what you got”. While in would love to buy a bunch of quilting fabrics from the shop down the street, I have been unable to work while waiting for my residency in Costa Rica.

My mother thought it was important to incorporate my love of quilting into the wedding.

So I have turned to my own closet to find fabrics that can supplement my projects. I purchased this bucket bag years ago at Old Navy; and while it has served me well in the past it was simply taking up room in my closet.

An evening of seam ripping yielded oddly shapes pieced from the exterior print and interior orange lining.  A pale peach cotton/poly blend from my stash goes perfectly as an accent.

I have 16 bags/blocks to make. The first 4 bags are going to be made the heart block from Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew.

While I have ideas for the remaining bags, nothing is set in stone.

Hopefully I can get the guys all done before leaving for AZ next Monday!
