Hunter Star Quilt is finished and other things

I finished the Hunter Star Quilt the other day and since it was mild out and no much snow I was able to hang it up outside and take a decent picture of it.  It is made with the "Deb Tucker Rapid Fire Hunter Star Ruler".  This ruler is really a great tool to make this quilt.

I am a little disappointed with the colours since the deep brown star doesn't show up as much as I thought it would, but I am still happy with it.

I also got an Ipad for Christmas (I'm spoiled, I know) so I wanted to make a cover for it to give it some protection.  I looked around the Internet for a pattern and decided on this one from One Shabby Chick.  Her tutorial is very easy to follow and it actually fits my Ipad.

I have had this fabric for a while and
thought it was just perfect,
very elegant.

I also made a new bag for a friend for her groceries.  She is like me and hates to pay the 5 cents for a bag so I made her one to carry in her purse or car to have handy when she needs one.

This bag is lined and ready to go.

I have made this bag pattern many times.  I got it off the Internet many years ago and I can't find the pattern again to link it to this post.  It is called "The Greatest Bag Tutorial Ever?"  I make it a little larger than the pattern calls for.  I make it 16x17 and the pattern calls for 13 1/2 x 12.  I made it that size once and it is too small so not I make it the larger size.

I found the link: here it is.
