Weekend Sewing

This weekend I made two bags for Basic Grey using their new fabric line, PB&J.  PB&J will be available in stores next month.  I know that it will be available at both the Fat Quarter Shop and Christa Quilts.

I used the Bucket Bag Pattern by Michele Patterns. It’s available here. It’s a great pattern, very clear and well written. The resulting bag is quite roomy. I think it would work for a mother carrying wipes and a couple of diapers even.  Do you like my frame of reference here?  This is how my mind still thinks.
I also made another pillow using up the last of my HST WIPs.  These HST units were meant for the same quilt as all the burgundy and cream prints that I showed last week. I separated them out and arranged and rearranged until I settled on this design.  
As usual, I went with another invisible zipper.  The pillow backing and the central design on the pillow are made from Lime Essex.  The rest of the fabrics includes bits of Medium Aqua Linen, shot cotton, Lilly Belle by Bari J. for Art Gallery Fabrics, and a bit of Anna Maria Horner scraps.

I think this one will be a gift for some friends with these colors in their breakfast nook.  I am now free of all WIPs except for my Cocorico and Stash Trad Bee Quilts. I plan to get those finished up soon.
