Scrappy

This afternoon I came across a link on Jeanette's blog, which lead me to this tutorial by Lappeklipp. It looked like a lot of fun, I needed a new purse, so I just had to give it a try! This is my scrappy result - made from twenty two 3" squares and about a FQ with blue roses:

I think it turned out pretty good! She says it is a quick pattern, and she is right - it took me just over 2 hours to make this little bag - it's far from perfect, but I'm quite pleased with my first try! Here's a view from a different angle:

***
Remember the swap blocks I sent off in return for the red and white ones? When I pieced the flying geese units in the "On the Oregon Trail" blocks I did quick corners, and I saved all the cut-offs. For a few weeks now I have used them for leaders and enders, and some days ago they became these:

They are about 5" finished, which is a bit of an odd size for me, but they are quite cute :o) I think they will be used for a cushion for my sofa - I have a couple that really needs a new cover! Just have to figure out a way to set them.

Have a wonderful weekend! My plan is to (hopefully) get the quilting done on the red and white swap quilt - I still have some ways to go so fingers crossed!

Så søtt dette er då! Kjempefint. Og leaders and enders, vel, eg veit om det, men har aldri prøvd. Kanskje eg skal gjere eit forsøk?

That's a very cute little bag. Look froward to seeing your cushion cover ... the star blocks are very sweet.

Se der ja, så flott. Det er sikkert mange som vil prøve seg på denne. Vesken var kjekk å sy, og jeg måtte jo bare prøve.

Cute bag! I might try it for myself, maybe a new bag for my trip to Seattle?!
