Yin Yang Bag



I took a break from nine patches today and made this bag. It is from a pattern by Jamie Kalvestran. I just used whatever pieces I had around and it turns out to look a bit Christmassy so I guess I am getting ahead of the season.
I am a bit stalled on the nine patch quilt until I get some light fabric for the sashing. I tried marking the wonky log cabin. I think I will outline the star and then quilt it from the back with one star inside the other getting smaller. Then I might meander the dark areas outside the star. I need to get some thread to match the backing though, and decide what to do on the border, so stalled on that one too.
Maybe it's just too nice outside to be in the studio quilting. I guess it's time to make the dog happy and go for a walk.

I saw the pattern for htat bag in the Quilter's Jewel in the summer, but didn't pick one up -- after seeing yours I'm wishing I had :-)

Fab bag - with the lovely scenery you have around you no wonder you had to get out and walk.

Fun...those bags of Jamie's, aren't they!

Hope you took in lots of the outdoors. For here...by next week at this time, they are forecasting cold temps. We've got to enjoy this Autumnal Summer while we can!
