Small Bags/Purses

Recently I have been making small bags/ purses just large enough for a cell phone, keys, and maybe lipstick/ chap stick with a pocket for credit card/ money.  The finished bags measure approx 6 in wide/ 8 in tall.  Some with removal straps and some w/ adjustable straps.  

This one is going to be a birthday present for a young preteen niece.

This one I mailed to a friend.

These two were made for a niece and her daughter (my grand-niece). 

This one hasn't been designated for anyone as of yet.

Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt

This quilt is another made mostly from my scrape baskets.  Log cabin pattern.  Machine pieced and quilted.  It measures approx 50 in x 66 in.  I plan to keep this one.

found a small frayed opening in a seam while I was doing the quilting which I had to mend.
You can see the mended piece in a photo showing the surrounding area.

The Cross Fabric Postcard

I was inspired to make this postcard by the view I get of the cross of a Church I run past on one of my usual routes.  I had been thinking it would make a nice small quilt or postcard for a while now.  I finally sat down and did the postcard on Easter Sunday afternoon.   Here is the view that inspired the postcard.

Here's the finished postcard.  It measures 6 in x 8 in.

Small Log Cabin Scrappy Quilt

Recently finished this small scrappy quilt.  The block is courthouse steps.  The finished quilt is ~17.5 in square.  

If you look closely you can see where the reds bleed a bit when I washed out my quilt markings.  It's much more apparent on the back.
