OMG 03 - finished

Let's admit it, I was not very productive during March but I didn't want my OMG goal to fade away. That's why I cut up those partially used squares.

I wanted to make some flying geese so I prepared the rectangles. Two sets of 2.5x1.5". Out of remaining 1.5" strips I prepared some triangles for future use.

Than I pieced the geese with few 1.5" scrappy squares and finally added scrap of little dots. As usually my pouch is sewed out of 1 piece. The size is 7x11".

My cutlery fits just fine in there.

I boxed the corners but only tiny bit. I didn't even cut the triangles off.

Of course I couldn't miss little loop as a handle.

Somehow it's becoming an experiment on how much you can create out of 8 charm squares. Hopefully it'll continue soon...

OMG - 03

I didn't want to choose new goal unless I finish the previous one. So here we go. My February goal is finished. Just not in time.

I kept the quilting pretty simple and the back side is plain with hidden zipper.

The strawberry block is from the Honey Pot Bee series and you can find the tut here.

My cushion ended up around 12" almost square.

I didn't want my strawberry all ripe so I used a bit of white squares to give it a bit of dimension.

Here is my favorite detail.

And what's my OMG goal for March? To use up those charm squares. I have new cutlery pouch on mind. So we'll see.
