Odds and Ends

I saw a Lil Twister quilt on another site and decided I wanted to try and do one - Alas, I didn't have the tool/ruler.  So, I just taped my 6½ ruler for a placement line and made up 2 - 4 patch quilts with borders and these little quilts are what I came up with.  I won't go into details as to how I did what - as I don't know if that is a copyright infringement.  I'm not even sure I did it right, but I do like the results ohof my endeavors.  I'm thinking I will be making a full size quilt using this method.
I made a Chelsea bag/backpack from Lazy Girl designs (sorry no picture - maybe later).  I wanted to have a bag for going to Disney with family at the end of March - lets me carry all my junk with hands free :-)  I've probably made about 4 of these bags (maybe more) and  they really carry alot of stuff!
It's actually been pretty slow in the quilting department - I think I just about have the pattern I want to use for a new quilt for me - just need to work on the dimensions.
Until next time - hope everyone is staying in good health and being creative.
