Project completed

I have completed something this weekend that I started last weekend. It's a quilted bag.
I found the kit in my catch all room when looking for two of my "missing" projects. I can say that while I found one, the other is still on the missing list. Don't have a clue where it is. I suspect some day I'll come across it and go "so that's where it was!".

This bag is from a kit that I purchased many, many years ago from Better Homes & Gardens Club that I belonged to. I had not remembered I purchased this kit - that's how long ago it was. But I thought, what the heck, I'm going to make it up. One can never have too many bags to use. This one is 14"x12"x4" and is now ready for use.
I have to say, if I make it again, I will not be following their instructions. The way that the bag went together was a nightmare to quilt later. However, I really like the pattern and will most likely make it again - My Way.

The month of February is almost over and the month of March is creeping up on us. While I like the month of February, I don't seem to get much done. Is that because it's shorter than the other months? Or is it because I just don't pull myself together? Oh, well. I will try to do better in March. I have many things on my UFO list that I want to finish and I'd best be getting to them. A couple of them won't take long, and a couple of them will be works in progress for a while longer.

This month I did find backing for a quilt top I did a year ago. Now I need to cut batting for it and piece the back so that I can hopefully get it sandwiched at our next small quilt group meeting. Once I get them sandwiched, it's just a matter of a couple of weekends to get them quilted.
