La Passacaglia Rosettes 6:2 and 6:3

A few more of the partial rosettes done...
I cut into some pretty hard to find fabric for this one. Use it or lose it, right? I keep thinking of the 'spongeworthy' Seinfeld episode when I'm picking fabrics for this quilt. I'm so excited about this design that even my oldest fabrics are worthy at this point. 

A Finished Sew Together Bag

I just finished up my pink and green and linen Sew Together Bag (pattern by @sewdemented from craftsy).
I made the inside out of a pile of Liberty of London lawn fabrics and sewed up 6 tiny (3") quilt blocks for the exterior from them plus scraps of quilting cotton.
I used Essex Linen in flax for the rest of the exterior and embroidered it with pink variegated perle cotton. 

The construction of this bag is very unique but the result is so worth it.
It's not very hard and I actually stitched the whole shebang on my Singer 221 featherweight. I plan to use it for my sewing tools when I'm on the go.  

Linking up with Amanda Jean's finish it up Friday at crazymomquilts
