I can’t tell you how happy I am to have that drab bag off my sewing table. And tonight I surrounded myself with more color as I continued working with the blue and orange Aboriginal and KFC fabrics. And I feel better!
After making the first curvy block the other night, I made three more tonight and started planning a design for a couple of bag panels. Here’s what I came up with.
I used the full block on the left side, then cut a block in half and stacked it up, one piece on top of the other, for the right side.
I just love the combination of blue and orange! And I love the combination of Aboriginal and KFC fabrics. They really work nicely together. And I love orange. Orange gets a really bad rap. But it’s a really spectacular color!
My shepherd’s crook is orange!
Here’s the other panel for this bag.
And both panels together so you can see the difference.
I managed to get both panels completed and sandwiched.
I will probably get them quilted tomorrow night. One more bag after this and I’ll be done with that ugly batik on the back!
Here’s a close up of one of the panels so you can enjoy all the gorgeousness!
So yummy!!! Everyone should start loving orange!
And as much as I enjoyed my time in my sewing room tonight, Bender did not feel the same.
I’m editing this post to add:
My friend Trudy just posted an album of photos of her lambing season on her Facebook page. You can enjoy lots of photos of ewes and lambs here (and my new boyfriend Isaac!). I hope her privacy settings will allow you to see the photos.
