Friday Scrapbag

These blocks are leftover from a quilt I made in 2000. It hangs on the wall outside my sewing room. I enjoyed making these paper pieced blocks. Some of the the first paper pieced blocks I ever made. I used the Sew Precise program by EQ.
I took them out because I will be making a tote bag with them. (one of those ideas you have while lying in bed) I hope the bag looks as good as it did in my head.

Here is the quilt. When I thought it was finished, it wasn't. So I set giant plate on top of it drew a line around the plate, and cut on the line. Yes, it really wanted to be a circle!
I have to say, this is one of my favorite quilts ever.

This is what I spent today working on. It's almost finished, just needs binding. Yea!
Have a wonderful weekend. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Love those blocks and what a great idea to make that quilt a circle! It's perfect! I can't wait to see the bag you came up with. I think of lots of ideas while lying in bed too!

Lovely quilt. I like abstract. I like the way the mind sees it as a circle, then a square, then a circle again.
Blessings, Star

This style of quilt is one I continue to aspire to and it is so beautiful how you have interpreted it! And to have blocks left over, what a bonus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
