My new fabric and more bags :)

I was very lucky to be the 1st ten people to upload a quilt a magazine and this little bundle is what I got :) it is kinda 30ish and vey pretty.  I now need to find a nice bag pattern to show it off :)

 I wanted to try a new quilt block rather than just squares and I have been looking at MissouriQuiltCo You Tube videa's for a while now and LOVE them :)
These are my 1st attempts at this tutorial
I need a bit more practice but they are so easy to do I don't mind doing that lol.

I am so in love with this fabric, it was just by look ing for the deep purple Lava fabric that I came across this lovely fabric seller

 I had made another Amelie bag but did not have enough of the purple fabric to do the handles (I had brought it off Ebayand could not find it again) so when I put in a searce on Google Tabbycat came up and boy does she have some wonderful fabrics and every colour of the Makower Lava and I just had to have the red and also this beautiful red Cascade from FabricFreedom.
 The purple is a lot richer in colour than it has come out in the pic' I didn't get a photo of the bag I made before giving it to my friends mum, she wanted a bag with lots of pockets for her art stuff.

The fabric below is some I got in Cromford Quiltessentials shop, this too is more (what I would call anyway) Autumn red

This fabric is Moda Terrain by Kate Spain :)

Another Amelie bag, I never get fed up making these :)

I brought this fabric last year and wanted a pattern to show it off so I knew a Keyka Lou pattern would be great. This is called Half Moon bag, I think I have most of Michelle's patterns now and they are very easy to do :)

The button is one I found in my button box

I had just enough of the Moda fabric left to use as the lining :)
This may look a small bag but boy does it hold a lot :)

To end this long list I have been useing up my scraps and made this 4 sqaure block.
All my scraps have been sorted into colours so the next 4 will be black and white with a little red in some and maybe I will have enough to make a quilt :)

A closer look :)
Hope to post something special tomorrow as I very much appreciate you dropping by :) :)


  1. Oh what lovely fabric! You have been busy. I became addicted to the Missouri quilt company videos. So informative and I could watch for hours! Your blocks are lovely as are your bags (as always). Love your Pure by Sweetwater for Moda fabric that I spied (lining for the half moon bag) I love the Pure range. One of my all time favourites! x

  2. Hope you are having a lovely day today
