March One Monthly Goal

I have been wanting to sew another Poolside Tote by Noodlehead for a while, so I decided to make this project my March OMG.

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.

Completed February 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.
