Off on a tangent again

Well it's true. I have gone off at a tangent again, though I was good at the Bee yesterday and spent all day hand quilting my UFO. Not a lot more to quilt, then the binding and my first UFO of 2013 will be done!!!

Now this tangent. Well I was blog hopping as one does, and found this lovely tutorial by
Elizabeth Hartman, so I just had to make up a couple of blocks. I have always been fascinated with quilt as you go projects. Wow, these were looking good. I wish I had cut the backing larger to start 
with.This will have to be a rather small project.

Block 1.

Block 2.
                                   This is what I came up with. It's a right dandy little bag,
 not big enough for shopping but fine for carrying small projects to classes and clubs.

The quilt as you go method was quick and easy. The fabric I used was thicker than quilting cotton, so it stands up all on it's own. Well pleased.

Ann's Baby quilt.

Pippa's Blocks.

A lot of fun was had at the Bee yesterday and it was good for me to get out after the bad cold I have had. 

Ann brought her lovely baby quilt she was making to show us, the Jemima Puddelduck border was enchanting, and Pippa's blocks , well what can one say she is so neat and tidy and puts the rest of us to shame.

I do wish this weather would brighten up so I could get out in the garden, good excuse to sew though.

Keep safe and keep stitching .....Doti...
