3-10-13: Sewing Progress

Mainly pictures this post since today will be a running-around day!  I did my first jelly roll "Race Quilt" in the "Loulouthi" fabrics (it was the only jelly roll I had on-hand).  I have seen entries of ladies finishing the quilt top in 35-40 minutes, so I timed myself.  I took 1 hour 15 minutes to finish this top, so I was happy with that time!  I first laid out all the strips in the end-to-end placement:
And the finished top ended up this way:


Mr. Olive really liked the result!  In addition, I bought borders and back fabric for a vintage feedsack quilt.  I wanted to finish it up, but my batting wasn't big enough.  I'm going to pick up batting today to get this one done next weekend:

I love love how it looks!  The back fabric is a bright orange, yellow, and cream floral.

I also got two new tote bags completed and posted to Etsy:

This is the first time I've used fabric with a black base.  I treated each side with Scotchguard.

I'm part-way through another quilt top, but not sure I'll get it done today...if so, I'll add pictures!

Happy Sunday!
