I did some sewing

I had my guild meeting on Thursday and we made little sewing bags. I didn’t want to mess with taking my machine to the meeting, so I just visited with everyone and brought the instructions home to make mine. It will hold a 6X8″ cutting mat and ruler as well as a few other things. Picture 5859

I still need to add some velcro to keep it closed and make a little name tag to go on the inside.

After  making the bag, I made my block for this months Saturday sampler BOM. Although the first Sat. is next week, since it’s a holiday, the shop will be closed, so we have our July meeting today.  Anyway, I got my block finished for this morning.

When making the pinwheel in the center area, the directions said to cut the pieces into triangles and then piece them together (which I don’t like to do) so I did it the quick way and left the square big and just sewed the lines then cut apart and had my triangle pieces sewn together, then added the other piece and it was done. Much easier way than cutting and sewing on the bias.

Well, I guess I better go get myself ready. Have a good day!
