Weekend Progress: Teal bottled rainbow block and a simple handmade bag

This weekend, I finally got into the Bottled Rainbows quilt. My progress--I cut all 16 Neutral Kona blocks and finished the teal block (with batting) using a quilt as you go method.

I can already tell that I'm going to enjoy this much more than quilting a large piece all at once, because it's so much easier to maneuver. And there's a great sense of accomplishment in seeing a glimpse of the finished quilt!

I also whipped up this reversible bag from items in my stash (fabric, purse handles and trim are things I've had for at least a year), and it's going to be a contribution to a silent auction held at my church in a couple weekends.

A simple bird purse

My favorite part--the polka dot lime trim on the inside pocket. And those fun handles, although they seriously make me want to lay on a beach somewhere.

  1. Oooo I love your teal block! I got in on the game a bit late, I didn't order my kona solids until Tuesday, but they haven't shipped yet, so I'm going crazy! I want to organize my scraps but I want to see the colors in person before I start. Your block really looks great, and I'm so looking forward to quilting something so small :-)

  2. Love your teal block! Some of my fave fabrics in there...

  3. Love the little sheep in your teal block, they are so cute! I hope to get my first block pieced for the bottled rainbows quilt this week!
