Round Robin - Kathy's Quilt

I did some sewing this week!  Shocking I know. :)  I did test a pattern for Hunter Designs last week but I can't share till after Quilt Market in October.  Here is a tiny peek ;)  Darn.  



I can show you my addition to Kathy's quilt for the Round Robin I am participating in.  Once again I was totally over thinking the add (like the other 3 I have added too) and getting totally stressed out.  I put a picture out on my Instagram feed and my friend suggested to remove a few of the drunkard blocks (I had a lot of them to begin with) and it really helped me move on with the project. 

 I think some times you just have to put it out in the world and see if other eyes can help you.  So this went in the mail to the next in line so I won't misplace it with the craziness around here.  

This week I also cut out the pieces for the three blocks that I am behind on for the Globetrotter BOM but cutting and laying out is as far as I got.  Hopefully this weekend I will be able to find some time to get them pieced so I can share next week.  

I would of had them done this week but my husband was showing me canvas briefcases that he liked but did not really like the $100+ price tag.  I really think I must love him as I said "Oh I am sure I could make you one of those for way less."  I could not find a pattern anywhere just my luck.  Not sure what I was thinking since I have not made many bags and nothing without a pattern.    Here is a peek at what I have come up with so far in one day.  



I am kind of proud of myself for being able to work this project out all on my own.  Can't wait to share once I finish it up.  

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. 

Cheers, 

Abby
