Latin Lady quilt by Villa Rosa Designs. (It is also our guild project for next month.) I decided to do mine in Kansas Troubles fabrics. It uses the majority of two charm packs. I used two different charm packs - Favorites and Aunt Purdy's Parlor. The yardage was from a different Kansas Troubles collection, but I don't even know which one.
I plan to piece the backing from 9 different Kansas Troubles fabrics and then quilt it myself on my home sewing machine. I plan to use this quilt as an everyday sofa quilt to cuddle under. I think it will be a good size for that at 51 x 64 inches.

Not Quite Giant Jellyroll Bag, except this time it is not giant and it doesn't even use 2-1/2 inch strips. I also added a flap and button closure to make it more like a purse, which is my intended use for it. I have to stop making bags with this pattern. It really isn't fun. I'm not sure why I decided to do it again. Oh well, at least I have a new purse!
One of my quilting friends found a cute little picture on pinterest that says that there are no mistakes in quilting - only pot holders. I think that is good idea!

I pre-washed the fabric in baby detergent and hot water to preshrink it and soften it up. Then I cut out 9 inch squares. I sewed the squares together using a 1-4 inch seam and my walking foot, leaving about a two inch gap for turning it right side out. I turned them right side out, and then top stitched about 1/8 of an inch or less from the edge all the way around to close up gap and secure the seam. Hopefully they will work well. Some things I have read say they need a few washings before they really start working well.
