Erin Schlosser of Schlosser Designs created it with Melissa at Iza Pearl Design.
Unfortunately I got hung up in my testing when I went to my thread box for my light blue thread and it was gone! I needed it to quilt the front and back of the bag. The quilting is the last step before assembly. So, my bag was stuck in limbo until I could get to the store for more thread. (And I missed my deadline.)
I got thread today and the plan is to quilt the rest and assemble it tomorrow. But in the meantime, you can see my cutie sassy girl that is appliqued on the front.

You can see photos of the full bag and the other tester's bags on Erin's website HERE
The pattern is now up for sale as a PDF download or a hard copy in Erin's shop.
She has a lot of fun patterns and they are easy to follow. I have made the Zoe Messenger bag
and the Floral Clutch.
I have plans to make a Reversible Grocery Tote soon.
Go check them out!
Another item in the works is a baby quilt for a friend who is the wife of my husband's co-worker. The wives of 5D Robotics all get along great and we get together for movie musical night, birthdays, movie premiers, things like that. 3 of those ladies are expecting babies in March, so we are having a lunch to celebrate the new arrivals on the 18th.
This quilt is for the gal who we know is having a girl. There is also a boy on the way (my sister in law), and a surprise baby.
It is not really "baby" fabric, but it is pretty. I have been hoarding it for something special. It is Tidbits by Kari Ramsay of Fresh Cut Quilts. By coincidence the pattern is from her too, CrissCross, though I think it is a discontinued one. I have had it for a long time. I think it was the second printed pattern I ever bought. I am not making the full quilt, just 12 blocks instead of 20 and no borders (probably).
I messed up the cutting so I was forced into doing the blocks the way you see below, instead of all the florals being on the corners. I think it will be okay. There are green and pinks still to come. This is just the yellow and brown set.
I have not worked on any UFOs since I finished the pillow. But that is okay! :) They are not going anywhere.
Have a great weekend!
