RUSH HOUR IS HERE Day One

RushHOURtagbutton_zps5299c169

Yes, the Rush Hour Blog Hop is here and now.  And let me tell you I really was rushing.  With the change in the weather cold coming on, I was falling fast and did not think I was going to finish in time.  But like the slow person I am, I rush to the finish line and made it on time.

 

Before we get to my rush hour creation I would like to thank as always Madm Samm who always seem to have something for us to do, and Carol from Just Let Me Quilt who will be cheering us on every step of the way.

This hop is about rush hour, and not just the fabric.  Studio E came out with some great rush hour fabric, but we did not really have to use it just as long as the fabrics were red, white, black or  gray.  I was lucky enough to get my hands of some of the fabric and used it for my creation and here it is.  My Rush Hour Weave bag.

When you are rushing around trying to get out of the house, you need to grab that rush hour bag and head to the bus stop for work, or to the hair dresser (which I really need to go), or to the fabric store for your next fix on fabric.   This pattern is call Breezy Weave Bags by Aunties Two.  It is has instructions for a small and large bag.   It is not a hard bag to put together once you weave in the strips and I enjoyed making it and will make another sometime soon.

I think my biggest problem was sewing in the side gussets but I seem to have muddle through it with flying colors.

As you can see from above it also had to inside pockets great to carry my Kindle and phone.  It also had magnetic snap closure, which I forgot to get a picture of.  I am become fever delirious sorry.

 

 

 

 

 

I tried to get some better pictures, put with this cold and fever I have, I could only get this done.   Oh baby I am fading fast and ready to hit the bed and take more pills.

Found the Magazine–Up Coming Hop

 

SAM_0140

I wanted to give created to the designer who created this pattern for this Petals quilt, which can be a wall hanging or table runner.  I could not find the magazine during the “See you in September Hop” (I thought that Tom had trashed it by mistake).  But I found it near the ironing board.  This quilt was featured Fons & Porter’s Easy Quilts, Summer 2013 magazine.  The designer was Corey Yoder and she also has a blog  http://www.littlemissshabby.com/.  There are other Petals quilts on her blog.  Hope you hop on over a give her a look see.

 

I am glad I was able to find the magazine and share this with all of you.

Yes another Hop is on its way.  Rush Hour.  Boy do I have to rush to get this project done.  I think I am coming down with a cold and have not been able to work on my project much this week.  I am hoping to get it finish this weekend.  This hope is being cheered on by Carol Swift of Just Let Me Quilt and of course Mdm Samm.  I will be showing my project on the first day (wish it was at least two or 3 days latter), but I will work on it the rest of this week and maybe get it finished.

While, I am going to take to aspirin for my fever, and make some hot tea and lemon to head off this cold.

Have a great quilting week

Sylvia Anderson September 05, 2014

Hi Felicia, I started following you today with Bloglovin, and after reading about your grandmother living till she was 105, wanted to mention, that I lost my dad last year shortly after his 104th. birthday. It doesn't matter how long they live, it's still a devastating loss and I miss him every single day. The Jacob's Ladder is so pretty and a fitting tribute to your grandmother. Thank you so much for the giveaway opportunity.

Congratulations Sylvia, please send me your address and I will mail it out to you.  You can e-mail me at theslowquilter@gmail.com.
