Quilted Cosmetic Bags

I needed to make something to put in a raffle basket so I found 
the tutorial from Crafty Gemini to make these cosmetic bags. They 
were pretty easy to make and the tutorial is very good. 

made them with grey tones so they will hopefully appeal to more people.

I used a fleur di lis design for the lining of both bags.

I think I am going to make some for myself now!

I have another charity quilt for our local crisis center.
I went a little modern with this one, I think it looks 
like  a row of windows.

I did straight line quilting on this quilt.

I think it looks pretty good on my old metal lawn chair.

This is my attempt at an abstract quilt, I think it turned out well
 but I want to continue to try even more abstract quilts soon. 

I had this orange material that looks very 60's to me 
so I thought it had to go on the back. This quilt makes 
me think of a Dreamsicle.

You can see I have two different colors on my binding.
 I wanted white on the back and orange on the front. 

I cut the orange material 1 inch and the white 
material 2 inches and sewed them together. That gave me a 
2 1/2 inch binding. It is very easy and looks nice too.
