The sewing drought is over and when it rains it pours. I jumped off the sidelines of the Travel Handmade QuiltCon prep - take a look!

Soft and Stable and Wonder Clips - yes please. I modified the pattern to omit the cargo pockets because I could not stand to cover up those awesome dots. To compensate, I added a side pocket which helps tie in the bright pink.
A quick spray baste and a few pins along the oversized panel was really helpful to keep it all in place while channel quilting. Because I fussy cut the bee without calculating the trim it was a little tricky but worked out.

Not only did I finish the February ALYOF goal Slouchy Bags Taylor Made for myself (below) but I am in the home stretch of a Cargo Duffle (above). After seeing that Debbie and Rachel pulled off making theirs in a weekend I decide it was not too late for me!
Finish It Up Friday

Here's a Sneak Peaks at a couple of secret gift items that I also started and have finished since my last post. My mojo has officially returned - at least for pockets, zippers and bags in general. Not a stitch of quilt making but that's OK.

Choosing what fabric goes where is super exciting. Dottie on the other hand was not too thrilled that I took #fridaynightsewalong all the way to Saturday morning and was underfoot hinting it was bedtime.
