I made another bag sample for the quilt shop. I finished it and got it over to the shop so quickly that I completely forgot to get a photo while I had it at home. Here it is at the shop:

|Same fabric as mine, just in the red colorway|

|the first 8 inch block - isn't it cute?|
Then I finished making the other 3 half-size blocks, since I had already cut the fabric.

It just fits my coffee table in the living room. I love the way this looks! Rather traditional fabrics, but a very modern vibe to it. And I can see and enjoy those wonderful DaGama indigos! I can see that I have a little wiggle in my border that I'll have to deal with. Oh well, finished is better than perfect, right? *grin*
Here is a pouch I made for my Secret Sister in the Tacoma Modern Quilt Guild. I used Noodlehead's tutorial for the Open Wide Zippered Pouch. I love this pattern and have made a number of these useful bags.

I had to do take-down of my DH's pottery display at the Spring Fair for him as he was traveling for work. I saw this photo and had to snap it to share with you.
Google to the rescue! I found this from a search: "In 1938, a youngster named Roy Rogers opened the show (he returned with his wife, Dale Evans, in 1973)".
From an article in The Seattle Times, dated 1997, about the history of the Puyallup Fair.
I hope you get to do something creative this week! Happy quilting!
