Agility Day

Unlike last weekend, not much sewing this weekend but a GREAT day of Agility with my cute furkid, Penne. Best agility day we've had, 6 runs: 2 gamblers, 2 standard agility, and 2 jumpers. We qualified in 5 of the 6!!! WAY TO GO PENNESTER!!!

This is the tired agility pup shortly after we got home. Look at all that GREEN!!! (green = qualifying)

Sewing Weekend

Lots of sewing this weekend, started Friday with the HGTV PJ party iPad bag project. Just followed along because I didn't have my homework finished to stitch along on Friday.

Saturday morning I made this cute gift bag for Jade, the little girl my daughter babysits for. Found this cute Happy Birthday fabric in the remnant bin at JoAnns. This bag is reversible so after the gift is removed it can be used as a little girl purse.

 Late Saturday afternoon and finished today, another "Twister". This twister was made with 2.5" blocks cut out of 4" blocks and 2" border. Need to finish the binding. A border probably would have made it look nicer, but I just wanted to see what the 2.5" blocks would look like. Made this out of "scraps". The binding is purple, looks black in this photo.

iPad bag, made this today using the instructions from Friday's HGTV PJ party. The original instructions have a strap, but I just wanted a sleeve for my iPad.
Now to finish my CQ one block swap block, need to mail no later than Tuesday!!!

Twister, Practice Quilting, and Binding Added

I made a small twister so I could practice quilting before attempting to quilt my twister table topper.

I quilted the outline of the twisters using orchid color thread.



Binding Added

Thank you to "TheCraftyGemini" for posting this how to make and attach binding tutorial on YouTube. I have read a few binding tutorials, this one made sense to me.

Off to work on more projects with deadlines - happy creating!!
