A Little bit of this and...

a little bit of that.
  The decision was made and I've sewn the medallion to the background. Each corner has applique too and I have the freezer paper pieces ready to go. I just need to spend some time preparing them, choosing fabrics and marking them ready to sew.

 
 
The next border has been attached and the fabrics are cut for a diamond border which is next.

 
 
 
I joined in Lori's Humble Quilts block making, for the quilt in the  header on her blog.
 This is Part 1 and 2 but the instructions are all there if you fancy joining in. Part 3 is ready to be made with more plain and HST's borders.



 
 
When I visited the Melbourne Quilt Show I bought a piece of fabric from the 'No Chintz' fabric stand. They had a chair upholstered in it. I have now put it to good use and made myself a [nother] bag. The fabric along the top of it, is an old Repro that was in my stash and I think it goes very well with the main fabric and the handles which were bought a while ago finished the job. 

 
I've also fitted in a bit of applique of my Jan Patek quilt and a Christmas stitchery but I'll show you them next time as I haven't taken photos yet. It's been good getting a bit of everything sewn. There's certainly no time to get bored.

My you've been busy!! I bought some of that fabric from no chintz too - it looks great as a bag.

That is such a lovely bag. Your choice of fabric is perfect. Love it. I've notice that the center of your block for the Faithful quilt from Lori is different. I do have some extra Ohio Star blocks from another project that I could use too. Oh! I think I have another quilt being born. Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing.
