Happy Labor Day weekend! In between family picnics and get togethers, I've found a little time to squeeze in some sewing. I've turned my attention to my mini quilt for my partner in the For the Love of Solids Swap. I've had this chevron pattern in mind for a while now, and had to see it through in fabric, but I'm not sure I'm thrilled.
What do you think?? It's quite simple and I sort of wish I had made the chevrons a little smaller. It does go along with my partners mosaic, but I'm just on the fence about it. I sort of have another idea swimming around in my head, should I just scrap this and start with idea #2? I think I'm going to go ahead and quilt this and see if my opinion changes, but I'm not overly optimistic.
Changing gears here for a moment...what can endless yards of ridiculously stiff interfacing, 5 yards of cording, and yards and yards of home dec weight fabric mean? Indeed it means I've caught the bug. Yes, the Weekender Bag bug! Seeing all these beauties all over blogger land had me thinking I just had to have one of these guys. We have a vacation coming up in 5 weeks (not that I'm counting or anything) and this may just make an awesome carry on bag. Now just to wait for the pattern to arrive, and I'll be off, wish me luck!
What have you been up to this holiday weekend??
