Zippy Bag & FMQ Practice

Part of my Finish A Long list were some orphan blocks I’ve had laying around for quite some time. I knew they would make for good FMQ practice but I couldn’t just practice and then discard them.

I had these two coordinating blocks that I knew would make a cute (if not slightly large) zippy bag:

I did quite a bit of FMQ – actually I think I did too much in some places – and then turned them into a zippy bag. I think i will use this bag when I travel for my toiletries. You know those small bottles that seem to get lost in the large toiletry bag – or something like that.

Regardless of what I use it for (or maybe it will be gifted), here is finish #2 for 2015 Finish A Long (I haven’t blogged about Finish #1 yet).

THE March Project

In order to participate in A Lovely Year of Finishes I must pick a project I plan on completing in the appropriate month. This month I vow (boy that’s a harsh word) to use this fabric:

WhiteBoard Wednesday

IMAG0406

I know this is a terrible Picture but I bought some bright colored Chalk Pens and they brighten up my sewing room but they are difficult to photograph! I had to make some adjustments on PicMonkey and I’m certainly no Photo Editing Professional. heheh Believe you me, I know just how ambitious this list is! […]

Serious Catch-up **UPDATED**

Callee feb27

I have a great deal of catch-up to do today. I think it has been an entire month since I have posted. I could list a million reasons why but instead I think it’s more important to move forward (who knows maybe admissions will leak out as we move ahead **wink, wink**). So, in the […]

The rules of the Lovely Year of Finishes are to only  pick ONE PROJECT to finish in the designated month. While I want to simply pick the quickest to finish, I am not going to do that. Instead, I am going to pick a different one and push myself a bit. One of the four […]

Finish-A-Long & IG – A Simple Tutorial

This could be yours!

One cannot deny the major role Instagram plays in the blogging world today. It can have great impacts on the business world, it can impact your personal world both positively and negatively, and I think us quilters have seen it slowly take the place of Flickr (at least that is my observation). Well, it’s time […]
