Just a few things I'm working on!

I made another purse. Brought back my chickens and tried it out on the new purse design. I felt his feet got a little crowded off to the bottom. Sew I made a little bit bigger bag to make sure it would still stand. Now Im designing another chicken bag. I also prefected my zipper insert.

Bright scrappy purse with zipper

I worked on another purse last night useing scraps. I did the zipper a little different than the heart one. I like this much better. I know there are probley patterns out there for makeing something like this but I made up the pattern myself. I really like the way they stand on their own. I used different colored thread for the grid quilting and a verigated rainbow thread for the free motion quilting.

Little heart purse

I made this little heart purse last night. I quilted the fabric in squares and then did some free motion in gold metalic thread can't see very well in these pictures. The heart is also a pocket just the right size for a cell phone. What I really like about this purse is that it stands by itself and it is not stuffed.
I had made myself one out of christmas fabric because my own purse was hurting my shoulder during christmas shopping. There are times when I don't need to take a huge bag with me.

Oh no! Huge quilt I have been working on.

I layed out some of my quilt blocks to see how they would look! Oh No! I think it is going to be WAY too busy. I may need to do a calmer sashing. I is going to be raggy so that may seperate the blocks better. hmm not sure what to do. And I was planning on doing some real intence machine quilting on the blocks. Yeah time to set this aside for a while and make somthing else. I do like the bright colors.
