Swap Stuff

by Julie Hirt

I can share another Sew Together Bag now that the birthday girl has received it.

I know she likes purple… I just hope she likes *this much* purple.

Added a few flying geese to each side and quilted the exterior.

Used a lighter fabric in the pockets, which may help Renee find things a little easier.

I really do love this pattern and it will be a go-to for myself and gifts for a long time.

She also received a pincushion, that she almost didn’t receive it because it’s not perfect.

The pattern is from the Seams to Me book by Anna Marie Horner.  This is my 3rd attempt at this pattern. No matter how hard I try, I cannot get the seams lined up to lay flat.  Since the pincushion is large and useful I’m willing to overlook those things and use it anyway.

I keep my Wonder Clips in the middle and then I have clips and pins handy.

Here are my fussy cut blocks for last month’s swap with Amanda.

The theme was ‘travel’ so I used the double decker bus from the Londing Calling line by Jack & Lulu for Dear Stella.

I think it’s cute and it reminds me of the Weeble Wobble bus I had as a kid.

Hope you’re having a great week!
