The Abbey Bag

I've been very busy, just haven't had time to post.  Let's see, I've added to my Works in Progress by adding a number of quilts:  Treasure Hunt (twin size made for quilt show vendor shop hop), Treasure Hunt (crib size from leftovers after deciding to make previous quilt smaller), Trip Around the Scrap Basket (crib size to teach at quilt retreat February 2010), Trip Around the Scrap Basket (twin size after deciding the previous one was too small :o), Shakespeare in the Park, Log Cabin Variation (quilt show Friday night security project), and miniature for guild challenge due in January (don't have a name yet). 

So, because of all the started WIPs and having nothing completed for a few weeks, I decided to make this pincushion last night.  The pattern is "The Abbey Bag" but right now I can't tell you what company made it.  It went together very well and it's pretty.  I like that it has a pocket inside so that I can put my seam ripper in it at quilt-a-ways.

Oh, I did enter two quilts into the Quintessential Quilt show hosted by Circle in the Square guild.  Both of my entries were accepted into the juried show and I won honorable mention (3rd place) on Round Robin in the traditional bed quilt category.

That's it for me, what about you?
