Weekend Sewing

It was a very quilty weekend at my household this weekend. Being it will be the last free weekend before harvest starts I packed every minute I could with sewing! Here is Jenna working hard to finish up her bag that she started 2 weeks ago. She is doing so much better each time she sits down at the machine. Here she is working on the handles of the bag.Here is the finished purse, isn't it cute! I attached the handles and the buttons for her but otherwise she did it all. I am so proud of her and our next project will be a quilt. She has the FQ's all picked out and the pattern so she will learn to cut out her pieces and then assemble them. What a great winter project this will be. :D

Finally on Sunday late evening I finally got the OTR partially pieced and am now working on cutting out all the flying geese. I had a hard time with this quilt, I had to have the pattern in front of me at all time to get the edges pieced right, but I think it was worth it. I love it and am excited about getting it finished. I am definately on the dowhill side of it!

I think Jenna has talent. I like her fabric choices. That bag is really cute, I think my granddaughter would love to have it. It looks like you used up a lot of scraps in the OTR quilt, that's always a good thing.
