I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We sure did! Our son came home from Mississippi and my mother in law came from California. It was a fun filled weekend...we ate a lot, played games, and of course, made Turkey Cookies!
Both of them had early flights home this morning, so I had the rest of the day to play! I decided to get started on the first step of the new mystery quilt and after a marathon day of sewing, here are all my units! Yay! Somehow I ended up with 129 of the blue/red units...about 30 more than I need! LOL
I went a little crazy or more likely was distracted by the Hallmark Channel Christmas movies, but I cut twice as many triangles as I needed. Looks like there will be some more of these star points in my future!
I can show you these bags now...I made them both for birthday gifts. The larger bag was for my mom and I didn't want to post the picture until she had a chance to open it. These were both made from Moda Batik charm packs...but look how different the size is! The larger charm pack was 5 1/4" square and the smaller pack was just shy of 5" square.
I made 5 of these bags in November! I still love the pattern...it's a fun one!
I'm in a little shock that it's December...but nevertheless, it's here and the Christmas season is upon us. I have my first Christmas party of the year tomorrow at my quilt guild meeting. Should be fun!
Hope you all have a great week and be sure to check in on Bonnie's page to see everyone's progress on the mystery quilt!
