Sewing Projects on the Long Weekend



Along with enjoying the gorgeous (hot!) weather we had for the first half of our long weekend, I did get to spend some time sewing. For some scrappy fun, I took the blue fabric pieces that Amandajean sent and made a little quilted bag from them.
I also finished piecing the quilt top (thanks to Roxanne for finding the final piece I needed!) on my vintage blue sheet quilt and began the machine quilting.


I'm having a blast just making up the quilting design as I go along.
I'm loving the look of all these vintage fabrics together.

How was your weekend?
