This week's projects

I've been working on the back for the goodnight monkey quilt. Yes, I finished the top a year and a half ago. Hopefully my monkey won't decide he's too old for it by the time it is all finished!

I've also been thinking about making a bag. Like for a long time. I am in love with the quilt-as-you-go bags made by Elizabeth and Amber and others. Here is my pinterest board of bag ideas. I need a new church bag, and will probably make just a basic tote bag, a little larger than the one I'm currently using. Here's the pile of fabrics I'm thinking of using:

I'm trying to finish up a couple of things before I start this but I'm enjoying looking at the fabric for now. I kind of wish I had a couple more of those darkish (sort of ugly) yellow fabrics....

One more thing! My entry for blogger's quilt festival was nominated in the Favorite Home Machine Quilted category! I'd love it if you head over to Amy's Creative Side and vote for my supernova quilt! Voting ends tonight, just FYI. Thanks so much to those who nominated my quilt, and to Amy for hosting the festival. She puts in a ton of work on it and it is so amazing to see everyone's quilts twice a year.
