Two years ago I made a few fabric grocery bags in a new design. In shape, they resemble the old plastic bags that used to be given out at the checkout. But unlike those single use plastic bags, these ones are strong and sturdy.

Practical gifts are the way to go when welcoming a newborn into the world - something that looks great, but that you know will be used over and over and over.

I do not consider myself a quilter - even though I've made a few quilts. I've been sewing for many years, but it's only in recent years that I've added quilting to my repertoire. So I was pleasantly surprised when Benita invited me to the 2019 Online Quilters Meet and Greet, with a Great Grand Prize - link to enter at end of post. It's a great opportunity to meet real quilters, and also a good time for me to look at the progress I've made on my quilting journey.

I've done plenty of appliqué work, but until today, had never heard of shadow appliqué. I love the effect, and what's more, it's a perfect project for using up lots of small scraps of fabric.
