2nd Quarter Finish-A-Long Goals

I have a very short list of small projects for this quarter.  There isn't much time left for sewing/quilting between gardening and cleaning out my grandma's house.

I hope to finish this bag really soon so I can carry it on our family vacation.  It's a mini messenger bag pattern from an issue of McCall's Quilting that I bought at our guild's quilt show.  The only thing I had to buy for this one was the fusible fleece.  The stripe came from my grandma's stash and the navy polka dot was in the estate sale fabric that my mom gave me last year.

If plans work out, then I will add a zipper to it using directions in The Bag Making Bible.

Above is another bag that I hope to finish and get out of my way.  It was going to be my "winter" bag using Luna Notte candy bar and fabric.  Now it will be next winter's bag!  I hope to put a zipper in this, too.  It will look like this one below, my "summer" bag based on the Mill House Inn tote at Moda Bake Shop.

Click over to Rhonda's blog, Quilter in the Gap, and see what everyone else hopes to finish up this spring.
