Saturday Klosjes

I can't resist this pretty fabric – it's Garden Song by Nancy Halvorsen. I first came across when I was looking for fabric for Karen's birthday bag and couldn't resist getting some for myself with the intention of using my Inklingo Dresden Plate shapes on it – I'm still going to do that but am using the scraps for Klosjes. I cut out lots of shapes today that I had printed off using Inklingo yesterday and managed to get two sewn up as well. Here they are posing with the 'just about to bloom' lilac in the garden.

We cropped today, well – I sewed…everybody else cropped! and I had drawn Karen in our birthday swap. I made this bag for her in the blues from Garden Song.

It almost didn't make it to the wrapping stage…I rather fell in love with it and I think Karen likes it too 🙂 Happy Birthday Karen!

    I just happen to have been drooling over some “Garden Song” fabric this morning. Isn’t it such a pretty range?! Just love that gorgeous little bag. I don’t know that I could give it away. It’s very thoughtful of you.
    I have seen many other bloggers working on Klosjes. They’re so lovely. I’ve also only recently read about Inklingo. Oh so many wonderful things in the quilt world. Why of why do we need to sleep…… and work. (grin)
