Attempting the (supposedly) Impossible

Lately I've been thinking about making the Amy Butler Weekender Bag.  I know I'm late to the party, but I really like my Tula Birds and Bees so much that I want it on my couch and I want to wear it around town!  I've decided to make mine patchwork style like Elizabeth Hartman's tutorial here.  

So far I've cut out most of the pieces and made a million yards of piping using Steam A Seam a la Noodlehead.  I'm using a purple-winey colored linen blend for the piping.  Here's the front large pocket!  I love those squirrels - squeekity squeek squeeken :)  More on this later after more progress.

Flea Market Facified

I finally cut into my Flea Market Fancy and favorite DS Quilts prints awhile back when I found the perfect pattern.  This is called Perfect Points Sampler from Connecting Thread's website and can be found here.  I had a lot of fun making each of the different blocks, particularly my favorite Bear's Paw.  The quilt turned out quite green and orange - not exactly how I pictured it but that's what happens when I pick the fabric instead of letting Moda do it for me!
