Sew and tell

I decided to jump in on amylouwho's sew and tell this week. I finished this bag up last night as a present for someone. I can't say who because I haven't given it to them yet. It is made from a yummy blue linen fabric, and then I appliqued a thrifted doily on the front. I love it, and I think I am in need of one now.

I also finished up these string pieced blocks for Sarah for a Notion or Two. I love the way these turned out, I think it is going to make an awesome quilt. They were fun to make too, I used this tutorial from Film in the Fridge.

Thanks for jumping in! I love the bag! And I'm afraid I might have to steal sarah's quilt when it's all finished. :)

I love your bag, my friend Angela made me some doilies to add to a bag and a pillow! I really want to also do one of those stringed peiced quilts, yours is beautiful!
