First up is Broken Herringbone cushion. It would be sad if I didn't finish that one. Thank you for all the lovely comments regarding my quilting. It is huge encouragement for my future FMQ adventures.
I started this cushion last year as Christmas decoration. I used jelly roll strips from Cherry Christmas line to go with our advent calendar. You can find free Lone star pattern here. That is my project for Ho Ho Ho And on We Sew. Linky party for May is here.
As May is almost over I felt the need to complete my goal for ALYoF. Especially when I had my minute in spotlight as May Participant Feature.
Tada! Very simple messenger type of bag. I haven't used any particular pattern as this it very easy. The main feature is beautiful fabric - Echino. My only requirement was to have that elephant right on front.
See it's only two rectangles with added pockets. Recessed zipper might scare some away but it is easy to do as well.
I found this pretty open end zipper in my stash and wanted to use it as it matches nicely. I never used open end zipper for bags but I found it is quite convenient. You can open it up and leave it on a side for easy access kind of tote.
I choose this goal based on my Q2 FAL list. Smart idea I copied from my bloggy friends. My current score is 3/6.
The back is really simple but matches perfectly. I leave you with detail of quilted bottom and our freshly cut grass :-)
Linking up with TGIFF and Crazy Mom quilts, Show Off Saturday.
