My Prettiest Thing
I've had my mind's eye on this little cutie, from "1/4" Mark" for a while now. I made it for a family member who has recently taken up knitting. I envision needles, yarn and the latest project tucked neatly into the oval "bucket" next to their favorite knitting chair!
This was a thrilling project for me to take on....so many firsts! The Bucket, or any quilted bag, a first. Zig zag patchwork, a first. Kaffe Fassett fabric, a first! It has been a 2 day marathon of sewing...I had to pay such close attention to everything!
I am exhausted and exhilarated with this accomplishment! I thank Amanda Jean for her wonderful zigzag tutorial. I ended up having to cut the zigs and zags off the top and bottom of my panel...I was trying to pay attention to everything, but adding an extra strip to each row didn't occur to me til too late!
I used every pin I had on the lining.....
And then, all of a sudden, I was finished!!!!!
And the sun came out!!!!!
Yay, linked up with Finish It Up Friday @ CrazyMomQuilts! for the second time!!!!!
