               Camouflage Bags con.
   Finally finished making the body of my bags. Now the last two steps I need to take to finish the bags is to add the straps and Velcro closers.
     Here are pictures of the bags being made and now at this step.
        These first three  pictures are photos of the bag fronts and straps sewed and ironed . I'll be adding the folded  linings to the fronts of the bags and stitching them together around the edge and turning the bags  inside out.

 The  next set of photos are of the sewn bags and straps  .Front and back views.
  I will post photos of the finished bags once I get the straps and closers sewn on.
  After these bags are finished I'm going to start back making landscape quilts.
   I have several in process and need to make a small one to donate.
   My friend and co- author are almost ready to publish our book and we have two new exciting projects in the works for this coming year. 'Ill keep you posted on their progress.

           CAMOFLAGUE BAGS con.
 
    I'm  getting the bags done slowly but surely. I just finished the fronts of the Bear, Turtle and Angel . I cut out the applique  fabric pieces for each front after I fused it to fusible web. I added a branch with holly leave for the Angels halo .
    I used cotton fabric for the bag front and all the applique pieces.
 I will be doing some machine stitching on each bag front after im finished assembling them all and getting the iron on stabilizer attached to the body of the bag and straps.
    In the second picture you can see the fusing I did for each of the pieces of the for the bags. after they are cut out I remove the paper from the back of each piece and apply them to the bags front fabric.
 
 
 
  Here are Applique  pieces, for the fronts of three bags, after they have been cut out and placed on the front of the bags front flaps to set up the design so they can be ironed in place.
  I am working on the bag ,that will have a deer on the front, today.
  As soon as I can get a few bags made and perhaps a set of bowls I will get back to work on my Garden and Local Diner Quilt. Going to be a busy month.

                        Border con:
   I have just finished sewing the border blocks together and pinning them to my work board to see if it would fit. It fits perfectly. Oh I'm thrilled.
     Now I can start on the middle section of the quilt tomorrow.
   Lots to do this week. Im glad I can work. It is helping get my mind off things that are getting me a little uncomfortable.
       Here is a pic of my work board with border pinned in place.
