Mondo Bag

I got sidetracked from my quilting the other day and made a couple Quiltsmart Mondo Bags - one for my sister and one for myself.  They go together rather quickly and look cool.  Here is a link with a YouTube video showing them.  The only thing I did that really wasn't following the directions that saved a lot of time was I didn't cut the two sides apart that are on the panels (two per Mondo Bag) until after I had finished sewing the them - just remember not to sew the line between the panels and you are good to go.

I have almost finished the blocks for Carris' quilt but ran out of a fabric and the quilt shops didn't have it so I am waiting for the mail.  In the mean-time I started a quilt out of Quilts from the House of Tula Pink by Tula Pink of course.  I am actually following directions, shocker, and making the quilt that is on the cover of the book.  I have a good start, but just got to the white wedges part and will post about how that works - random is meeting random so I have my doubts.
