Gifts from the sewing room

 I recently completed this baby quilt and diaper bag set.



The quilt is a checked style.  It's just 36" square.



When designing a checked quilt, 
most quilters us different shades of the same color fabric.
I attempted the shading by using the reverse side of the pink fabric.
This was also a way to creatively use only stash fabrics.



The quilt backing is also one of the fabrics used in the bag, 
so they coordinate (at least according to my standards).




 I also made this super sized tote for a friend.
She had requested it before we moved but knew she'd have to 
wait a little while.  So happy I remembered to make this project.



What's next......
finish the quest room before I spending time in the sewing room.

Thanks for stopping by!
Carolyn

Using the "wrong side" of the fabric was a great idea. It turned out darling, and your bags a very nice too.
