Red, White and Blue

I belong to a quilting group called Material Girls. There are only six of us and last year we each made the others a small gift for their birthdays. It was so much fun we decided to do it again this year. Vicki chose red, white and blue for her theme and I made her this little bag from a tutorial posted by Sherri of A Quilting Life.


 All the fabrics were from my stash and include Bliss, Lecien basics and some Lakehouse and Denyse Schmidt fabrics. I managed to get it finished in a single afternoon and was very pleased with the finished product.


 I took these photos on my recently painted kitchen dresser.
 
 
 
 Today I started my March Schnibble quilt. February's didn't happen but I am determined to be more productive this month. Tomorrow is a holiday in Tasmania so hoping to get into the sewing room again.
