The New Year is in the Bag!

The Shasta Lily Quilt Guild met yesterday, and I led a workshop to make an easy/peasy Fat Quarter Bag.  We were all so glad to see each other, it's amazing we got anything done for the chatter in the room.  I think fun was had by all, and most of us came away if not finished, with at least the confidence to complete the project.  There were some dynamite combinations.  It also looks great with the lining turned out to make the handle casings.  Delores was working on her third bag, and hers was a Monet Beauty, with piecing AND pockets.  Excellent work, all of you!

The Shasta Guild now has a website too, it's great!  No more searching thru my messy desk for the last newsletter to tell me where to go or what I need when I get there!  Thanks, Wendy!  My friends can go to to check it out.  The Guild is off and running in 2011, we have such great plans!

For all my followers (all 8 of you) I promise to post to my blog more often this year, now that I can remember how to log in.


  1. You have a great Guild - I can't wait to see this year's projects...

  2. I love this bag, it reminds me of a purse I used to carry in the 80's ;]
