Trying to work my way through these Frivols that I purchased. I bought these monthly, but of course, I did not have the time to sew them. The fabric is very pretty for this Little Miss Sunshine Frivol which was #9. It is kind of "Springy" so it should look nice for Easter.
I think it is a cute design and I ended up with a lot of triangles that possibly I can use for something later on. I thought that if I don't use them as triangles, I can cut them into small squares.
I didn't purchase the backing fabric, but I have plenty in my stash that should look ok. I would like to finish quilting it in a few weeks so that I can use it for a gift.

This is the Elvis fabric that I thought would make a kind of fun and quirky bag to carry in Summer.
After all, Elvis is The King.
I enjoyed sewing my initial Poolside Tote and I used it constantly in Summer. It is really a great size to throw a few towels in to take on our boat or swimming. Plus, the pattern is great and comes together nicely. Since I've sewn this in the past, I should be able to accomplish this goal.
My goal for February was to get this quilt top quilted.
I'm happy to say that I did get it quilted. My original post is here: February OMG. The basting and quilting went quite fast. I drew the crosshatch lines with my Mark B Gone pen.
I made a scrappy binding out of the leftover fabric. Also, I used a backing that I already had at home. So really, this quilt was pretty inexpensive for me, especially since I had won the fat quarters in a blog hop. Hopefully, this will make a comfy, couch quilt.
I have been debating on a couple of One Monthly Goal's for February, but I guess I will stick with quilting my recently completed quilt top.
I don't want it folded up and sitting on my cedar chest staring at me. So I am choosing this as my OMG for February -- to have this quilted by the end of February. Usually, the quilting is fun but sometimes I just dread basting the back and batting to the quilt top. I just have to bite the bullet and get on with it.
My One Monthly Goal for January was to complete this quilt top. This was my OMG January Post.
These are just fussy-cut squares. I used a pattern "Love Patchwork and Quilting". There was a neat way of sewing the scrappy squares. They were sewn in strips and then you pick the strips out randomly for 6 squares each. It does make the pieces all different to attach to the center square.
I think it turned out pretty cute. And hopefully, I can get this quilted soon.
9.) Elvis Poolside Tote. I have made one these before and it does go together quickly so maybe I can get it done. Elvis is The King, after all.
10.) Baggalista Bag. I definitely need a new bag to carry and I really like this style. I like bags that are cross-body so that I can just grab what I need out of it. I'd like to put a quilt block on the front, but haven't chosen exactly what yet.
11.) One or both of these Minis I would like to work on.
12.) Would like to sew some of these Hazel Pouches. I just love it and can use some fabric that I have collected. These would make nice gifts, also to put away for down the road.
