A Finish – Snappy Bags with French Seams

I’ve had a few requests to do a tutorial on how I do French Seams on my scrappy snappy bags. I start by making my panel for the bag. Usually I do a QAYG panel with a normal backing/batting sandwich but recently I was inspired by Gail’s post on her Charm Bag project to useContinue reading “A Finish – Snappy Bags with French Seams”

Squirrels, Squirrels Running Every Where

Yesterday I started piecing a quilt for a pattern test I’m doing. I had everything cut and ready to spend the day sewing geese. Then a squirrel ran through my head!
