Patchwork City: Set 1

This year CJMQG is has chosen Elizabeth Hartman's book Patchwork City for this years Quilt-A-Long. The book contains 75 blocks. Members can design their own quilt. I am going to do a scrap quilt. Each of my "block" is a randomly selected 5x14, 8x8 and 5x8. I have an array of fabrics which I will swap in and out. Every set will have have the floral cat print, light blue denim and white.

Set 1:

5x14: Zoo Train
5x8 Fortune Cookie
8x8: Intercom

I am planning to base my layout on "Downtown".

Summer Bag

I am working through my list of projects to complete. I made my toile summer bag.

I used Butterick B4148 with a modification for my handles which are wider than the pattern.

A cute zipper pull.

Project 48 Quilt: Block 7 & 8

Block 7: I did not like the square. I choose a modern wonky chevron.

Block 8: I did not read the directions and cut and sewed the half square triangles incorrectly. Since I don't know if I will have enough fabric to redo the block. I followed advice I learned at the last Quilt Alliance - cut up the block and make something new.
