Three Finishes

I went to the London International Quilt Show in June when I was in London for my grandson's graduation and met a Canadian the vendor named Brenda Miller who sells patterns and accessories under the title "Among Brenda's Quilts".  I purchased 4 patterns and some special batting for bags and have finished making "The Yoga Girl Bag"

It matches the bag that I made to carry my blanket and blocks in when I go to my yoga class.
I am looking forward to classes starting up again in September.  I have been doing aquabics this summer to try to keep in some sort of shape, but miss yoga.

I also was able to finish putting the binding on another of my comfort quilts.
This will be donated to the Guild to go to one of the Homes for the Aged.

The Hexagon Quilt.

I cut all my bindings at 2 1/2 inches so any leftovers were perfect to make hexagons.  This is made entirely of scraps.  I like a scrap quilt to look like 'something' in the end and not just a bunch of scraps thrown together.

I was able to make the place mat pattern that I will be putting in September's Quill Newsletter.  I really like the way it turned out.  I got this pattern off the internet and emailed Alissa and asked her permission to use it and she was more than willing to give her okay for such a good cause.  I have been putting patterns in the newsletter so that the members have some new ideas to make place mats for Meals-on-Wheels.
