Mystery Quilt

My next unfinished project is a mystery quilt I made several years ago in the learning fiber arts group (learningfa).  I finished the class at the time, it was a 52" square.  I liked the design but wasn"t sure how I wanted to complete the quilt, size etc.  So, it went onto my "to be finished later" shelf.  Later has arrived!  Here it is fresh from the shelf, wrinkles and all.

I took the original square and turned it on point.

Added some triangles, to make it once more a square.

Added some borders so it would be a queen size quilt.  Sorry I don't have anywhere large enough to lay out a quilt this size, but you get the idea.

Now I need to plan my quilting, clean and oil my longarm etc. and get busy finishing this quilt.
Have  creative day.

Duffle Bag

My son had a birthday last week.  He has always loved listening to music and really wanted something he could use to listen to all the music on his iphone.  He wanted to be able to take it with him to his friends house.  So, in order to protect it when carrying it back and forth, I made a bag.  It is really big, so I had to make up my own pattern.  It turned out pretty nice.   Hopefully it will hold up to transport.
He liked the door over the phone, and the speaker size.

I added some acryllic in the bottom of the bag for stability.

Can you see the pocket, it is on the inside just below the zipper.

I added piping on the circular ends for more stability.
