WIP Wednesday: Making totes and stacks

We've had a busy week around here, which means it was a bit slow in the sewing corner. Most of my time was spent working on the perfect quilted tote I'm making for an STLMQG charity project. The outside panels are all pieced and quilted, but I hit a snag when the fabric I planned to use for the interior ended up not working. I don't have another one on hand that seems right, so I've got a trip to my LQS in store for this weekend.
In the meantime, I've been ogling these gorgeous fabrics I just got in from Stash Fabrics. The solids are for my planned Allie Owl and Aviatrix Medallion quilts (can't wait to finally get started!), and I picked up a few other fabrics I couldn't resist, most notably some fabulous Ex Libris prints. I can't wait to get some of that Art Theory print into a piece of wall art for our dining room.
And I started pulling a stack of Carolyn Friedlander prints for a project that's still forming. Not sure exactly where this is headed, but I sure do love her "rainbow" of colors (even in bad basement lighting).

The neverending (and usually growing) to do list:
Perfect quilted tote (STLMQG charity project tote)
Rhoda Ruth mini quilt
Patchwork City sampler quilt
Vintage Quilt Revival sampler project
Hazel Hedgehog quilt
Allie Owl quilt
The Kittens quilt
Wedding goodies (pillow, basket, vest)
Superhero cape for B 
Aviatrix Medallion quilt
Swoon quilt
Spiced Chai quilt (from Vintage Quilt Revival)
Sunset Tiles quilt (from Scraps Inc.)
T-shirt quilt
Sewing circle tote
Re-cover the downstairs chair
Ironing board cover
Clothing for me! (City Gym Shorts, Washi Dress, Sailor Top Shirt, Sorbetto Top)

  1. That is going to be a beautiful tote! Aqua and pink are a great combo. And your fabrics you got from stash make me happy- so much color!

  2. Love the pinks and blues for the totes. Hopefully you'll find something that will work!
