Rainbow Clutch

This is my completed Rainbow Clutch that I've sewn from Anna Graham's book Handmade Style. It is shown on the front of the book. I really like it and I plan on using it at an upcoming wedding in October. 

I love navy blue and I picked out Liberty lawn that I've had in my stash for the pieced front. Linking this finish to Bag It at Elm Street Quilts. You can link up your bag,too. They have great tutorials to follow for bags.

Finished Star/Log Cabin Quilt

Finished one of my Q3 goals.  This is my Star/Log Cabin quilt. I followed a pattern from Fons & Porter "Love of Quilting" magazine, Jan/Feb 2015.

I'm pleased with how it turned out. And I'm pleased that it's finished! This is a gift for my Aunt who's been asking for a quilt. It's a nice throw size for the couch. Since she's always lived in an apartment I thought that would be the best size. I quilted this in a cross hatch going first through the stars.

Hipbag Hybrid

I'm enjoying my new Hipbag Hybrid. This is a pattern from Studio Kat Designs - Hipbag Hybrid. I liked this design because I can wear it across my shoulder, or I can wear it on my hip - like the old "fanny packs". I can, also, clip it on my bike. My husband and I go bike riding and we needed a bag to keep our money and small items in.

Q3 FAL List

I only completed 2 projects from my Q2 Finish-along list. Following is my Q3 FAL list:
This quilt I have been working on is First on my list to complete.
Going on the list, but I'm not sure I will get this completed. So cute, though.
One more quilt. I do have the quilt top approximately 1/3 complete. Maybe I can finish this one before the end of September. I'd like to.
This is an old Christmas quilt top that a friend gave me. Not a lot of work to finish it. Just need to set my mind to it.
I want to sew a mini from this book. I purchased a stand and I have plenty of fabric to complete one. 
Maybe one or both of these minis. If I get the chance to work on them, I would like to.
7.) The next Bag I would like to sew is Swoon Vintage Donna. Donna Vintage bag by Swoon
I have the pattern, but I haven't decided on the fabric yet. 
8.) Rainbow Clutch from Anna Graham's book Handmade Style I have the book and I would like to sew this clutch. 
9.) Another Poolside Tote also from Anna Graham. I've made one and would like to sew another one. 
10.) Apple Pouch from Playful Little Paper-Pieced Projects. I have this book and have been wanting to sew it. It is on the cover, in the upper left-hand corner. So cute!
11.) I want to complete one or more frivols. As you can see, I have collected the whole year's worth; however, I have only completed one so far, which is here Frivol #3 Finished
12.) 2 Pillowcases for my son for his Birthday. I haven't bought the fabric yet, but will get to that. I always use tutorials from All People Quilt: Free Pillowcase Patterns 
13.) 2 Pillowcases for my own bed. Still need to purchase fabric for this, too.
14.) I might get time to sew the Walkabout Pattern from StudioKatDesigns. I purchased the pattern a while back and would like to make it.
15.) Basil Wall Hanging. I made the Oregano Wall Hanging here Oregano Post. I purchased both of these a while back and would like to sew the Basil one and then hang them both. I need to find Basil amongst my stash and get it done.
16.) If I get the chance to sew one of these pillows, that would be a nice edition to my living room.
17.) I might make one or two of Clover and Violet's The Phoebe Phone Case.
18.) Possibly, I might sew Patchwork Napkins by GenX Quilters . I purchase this pattern quite a while back, but keep forgetting I have it to sew them. I'd like to get a set done.
19.) I might sew Sophia Pouch by Svetlana. I've had this pattern for a while and have not sewn it yet.
20.) This Eve Clutch by ChrisWDesigns. Another pattern that I've had for a while. I do need a clutch.

Of course, I won't get many of these done, but I have them on a list now so that I can refer to and decide what I need to sew the most. Linking up my Q3 FAL List Q3 FAL at A Quilter's Table

July OMG

I had selected completing this quilt for my June OMG. The quilt top is completed, but I need to quilt and bind it. I am now moving this to my July OMG.
I think I got distracted with other projects in June, but for July I am going to concentrate on completing this quilt. Linking to Red Letter Quilts July OMG

Oregano Wall Hanging

Finished this cute wall hanging for my Q2 FAL. Here is the original post Oregano Wall hanging Q2 FAL #6 This is oregano. 

I love herbs and I purchased this quite a few years back when it was on clearance. I bought basil, too, but haven't started it yet. I would like to hang them both together so I haven't hung this yet on my wall.
I'm not really too fond of this technique - fusible applique. The pieces for the kit were all laser-cut. And then I had to fuse them onto the background fabric. I did quilt all of the pieces, but you can't really see by this photo. Linking to Q2 FAL at Clover and Violet
