And wow it feels SO GREAT that it is finally done. :) What a long and FUN project. I'd say this was my very "1st REAL quilt". And I just love how it turned out. Here's all the pics...do you like it? :) We made these quits for our playdates in the park. That is why we added the pockets..to insert crayon boxes, snacks, etc for the kids. But I just totally look forward to every Tuesday when us girls get together and quilt. It almost sounds like we are old ladies. LOL But in a way I guess we are at heart. But quilting with this fabric makes it FRESh, fun and I think the creativity never ends. There are so many things you can add to any quilt that it makes your mind wander in inspiration. Does that make sense? I love what HB has on her blog... "And I'm spreading the word on how fulfilling and necessary creativity is to the human soul". I think this is so true for most of us. We go to work, work from home, home school, drive kids all over town, cook dinners, clean the house and at the end of the day.....creating...anything...fulfills the soul. I look at this quilt and don't just see pieces of fabric stitched together. I see a nice sweet bond formed...between us girls...we all worked on these together...each had a part in it....it's pretty neat. I definitely would encourage any of you to get some girls together and do a quilt...and make sure you each finish it....so you all can say you started, worked and finished a big accomplishment together. See it's such an awesome hobby!!!!
And just how cute are these bags? Beth has the patterns and will be up soon. But I am just dying at how cute they turned out!!!
