Yesterday, in a frenzy of sewing, I made a new tote bag for myself. First I made a fat quarter out of selvages sew together. I cut it down slightly as I squared it off, and I had enough selvages left over to make inner pockets and an little outer pocket. I realized that the pockets needed something on the backs so that I didn't catch stuff on the unfinished sides. So I faced them with Pellon. Anyway, I don't have a photo, but am happy with the new bag which I hope is big enough to carry papers and books to various meetings, library Friends, Democrats, and otherwise.

Along with several tote bags, table runners, and mug rugs, I really finished quite a few quilts this year:

  • A 9-block appliqued sampler for flood relief

  • A red, white and black baby quilt for Jovianne

  • A green and white Irish Chain baby quilt for the Mad River Charity Auction

  • A batik squares quilt for the MRCA

  • "Full Duty" Civil War quilt

  • "Candy Land" wallhanging (hand quilted)

  • Australian fabric baby quilt for Robin's Yann

  • A garden row robin wallhanging

  • "Lasagna" flannel baby quilt for Hudson

  • "Prairie Flowers" friendship swap quilt

  • Ugly rectangles quilt for flood relief

  • "Virtually Pink" quilt using Tante Wil's last UFO for cousin Marianne

  • Basket block swap throw

  • Calico County challenge
