I finished sewing it together and took the pins out. The fabric feels great! I love quilt tops. Partly because piecing is my favourite bit I think. But even though I am a topper of some renown, I must admit that there is nothing like the feeling you get when you get all three layers of a quilt together. They don't even have to be quilted to feel wonderful. Basting will do it. That's how this fabric feels. It is destined to become a bag. Still not close, but I have had a real block with sewing of late. Hand stitching, no problem, but machine sewing just never seemed to happen unless it "had to". I think this was because I just had a camp chair and table for my sewing. (Still no furniture here. We are all missing our stuff so much!) That was, until I went to Ikea.
A $49 chair from "as-is" and a $39 table. Sewing today has been sooooo much easier! That camping table was waaaaay too low!
