So, apparently, I am slightly obsessed with this pattern....just a tad! I have made 3 quilts and now started a table runner. Since I paper piece the arcs, shrinking the pattern was super easy! I took my templates that fit on 11"x17" paper and shrunk it 67% to fit on 8 1/2"x11" paper. I have had a Vintage Modern layer cake hanging around for a while, so I just sliced off a 3" strip from each fabric and went to town! i think I am going to use Kona Ash for the background.
Here are my completed rings! The normal size for the rings is about 20" and these measure about 15" - the perfect size for the space on the top of my piano :o)
I was browsing on Pinterest one day this week....and found this awesome comic!!
Of course, my first thought was of the workout bag I made over Christmas break and never posted about! So, I thought I would share that 2 months later....better late than never :o) I wanted a cute workout bag that was big enough to fit an entire outfit, shoes, towel, mini bag for hygiene products, and anything else I might need. I have seen so many quilt as you go bags, so that was the method I used...and I have TONS of scraps to choose from. I just wanted it to be huge with lots of my fave fabrics. It measures about 20 inches tall, by 22 inches wide and is enormous. It fits everything I can imagine with room to spare!
