A bag and a block

Yesterday I went by Maryland Live! casino and picked up my second Bella Russo bag. 

This week's gift was a cute little lunch tote, a nice gift even though I don't tote a lunch anymore.

The inside is very roomy, with a zippered pocket on the outside.

Gee I wish they'd just give us all four gifts at once and get it over with!  But they know ... if you come in there's a 99% chance you'll play their slots and spend more than the gift is worth!

I also cut out two more of the little baskets for my challenge quilt, but I had to stop when I realized I was cutting almost twice the number of pieces I needed for the half-square triangles. 

I was able to use some of my larger scraps, and I also cut into a fat quarter that I got from Hancock Fabrics when they closed in 2011.  It's just been lying there for six years ...

That's it for now, have a great Tuesday - sew forth and sew on

  1. I thought at first that the casino gave you the quilt book as a prize, and I was impressed! Nice bag anyway - and who can't use another bag of any kind, lunch or otherwise?
