A Sew Together Bag for me

This is just a quick post, as I've made another finish in my FAL Q3  ( original list here). I've finished a sew together bag just for me ( my 7th now, so it was much easier ).
The bag looks a lot like my first, not surprising as I used the same Tula Pink fabrics on the outside.

The inside is different however. I used some Lizzy House and the last of my favourite hot pink dandelion fabric ( can't remember who it's by)
Perfect for the Simply Solids retreat this weekend.
Linking with Adrianne when the time comes.

Sparkle Punch Quilt Ta -Da

I've been busy this last month, so even though I finished this quilt 4 weeks or so ago, I haven't got round to writing about it. I started this quilt 3 and a half years ago, pieced it quickly and then stuck it in a cupboard!. Once I actually started to quilt it, it didn't take long.

One of the things I really like about this quilt, is that it is double-sided. The back is equally pretty.
I quilted it with a sort of spiky meander, which suits the star pattern well. It is also a new to me quilting pattern, another very useful one for my repertoire. It's all very quick to do. It also gives a lovely crinkle to the finished quilt.

I made the binding from the trimmings off the back and just moved the colours around, to add some contrast.
