A "Little Red" tote bag from Carried Away Quilting

Apparently I have a new addiction quilting friends, because I’m back today with another fun tote bag starring those darling Sweet Fruit Handles (Atsuko Originals by Lecien). I’m also happy to feature a terrific single-block pattern by a talented pattern designer, Gracey of Burlap and Blossom Patterns


Here she is, Little Red Riding Hood all decked out in polka dots and heading off to her grandmother's house. This might look like paper pieceing, but it's actually a traditional pieced block that is easy to make following Gracey's clear instructions.  I made the 6 1/2 ...

To-Do Tuesday | 08.02.16 from Georgia Girl Quilts

Last week was productive...sort of.

I mentioned last week that August is my month to select blocks for my do. Good Stitches circle. I chose the Rising Star block from Missouri Star Quilt Co. I made my sample blocks and posted my request for colors and sizes on our discussion page. Thankfully, I can set this project off to the side for a bit while I wait for my circle mates to make their blocks and send them to me.

Sample Rising Star blocks. I am loving that grunge in combination with those brights.
If only I could remember ...
