I watched a couple of tutorials on my favorite Missouri Star Quilt Company site. Jenny Doan showed how to make a bag from charm squares. The tutorial is entitled "3 bags 1 charm". There was also a tutorial on making preemie blankets using charm squares. Well, I had some orphan blocks (you know, those unused quilt blocks that hide in your boxes). Any way, I thought, hmmmmmmm, what if I used some orphan blocks instead of charm squares to make the bag. What do you know. I have a bag. I used an orphan block as the inside pocket, 2 orphan blocks for the front and the back, added a flap closure with velcro closing, and a button tied on with ribbon for an embellishment. Still have a couple of orphan blocks left to make a preemie blanket or two. I hope you all check out the Missouri Star Quilt Company online. I just received two orders in the mail from them. The one invoice included a hand written note from Julie wishing me a good day. Well, with wonderful folks like the ones at the MSQC I will have a wonderful day.
I hope you all have a wonderful day too.
