I taught a great group of quilters how to make the Runaround Bag by LazyGirl Designs yesterday at Cut Up and Quilt, our LQS. What a fun group and they all finished their bags...everyone was excited about that!
It's fun for all of us to make these smaller projects. Even though I love making quilts there is a great satisfaction out of making something that you can finish in a few hours. These bags are perfect for gifts too, which we are all thinking about as the holidays grow nearer. I love a smaller bag to take when I go shopping or to quilting events when I don't want to drag my entire life around in a purse. I had scheduled the class for 4 hours, but everyone finished in about 3. And a second one would go quicker. Ya' can't beat that!
This past week was my first full week back at school, it was hot every day, and I didn't get one lick of sewing done. I hope to get back to quilting the quilt I have on the machine today. It's about half finished, so I'm hopeful that I can finish it this weekend.
