First up was making these dozen Delectable Mountain blocks. Our charity quilt coordinators in the Central Florida MQG requested them, using our own scrap fabrics in colors similar to the Yoyogi Park collection, by Cloud 9. I will be turning them in at tonight's meeting.
Then, on Instagram I saw that Heather, of HeathersSewingRoom, had made a box-bottom shoe tote. Knowing that one of those would be perfect for my line dance shoes, I made one. Happily, I already had a sturdy 18" orange purse zipper on hand, so that dictated my fabric choice.
This fabric is Sanibel (too perfect), in my favorite colors. Roughly following my own Edith bag tutorial here, changing the dimensions and adding tabs to both ends to hang onto when using the zipper, it went together really easily. Love that fusible Bosal In-R-Form!
Both the tote and handle are stabilized with it, my new favorite tote and bag making product. I used up every last inch of one package and now need to buy more. Grunge fabric is on the inside of this tote.
My latest adventure is to join two quilt-alongs. Both are meant to use scraps, so I've set up my sewing room to make a mess. And it is! Hopefully by the time the alongs are all done, I'll see a reduction of the bits in my aqua scrap bins (see upper left corner).
I'll be joining CrazyMomQuilts - Amanda Jean - to make a Scrap Vortex quilt.

Lotsa little bits ahead! Linda
