I've had this lovely toffee apple fabric for a while but didn't know what to do with it, so when I found this zip up pouch/bag pattern at www.crazymomquilts.com and I thought it was ideal and I'm really pleased with it.

I used all the tiny strips of fabric and wadding I had saved up after I saw a comment about using them for stuffing pet beds.
I used an assortment of fleece off-cuts and some soft corduroy for the backing.
I think she's happy.

This was a really quick little quilt to make. I think I will use the blocks again, but I think with all the bits the right side with no trimming, as I found that a really boring part.
I wanted to try a different kind of quilting, I did the loop-d-loop with a loop inside each loop and about half way through I decided I didn't like that either. .. then came the binding and I realised I didn't like that either, so I'm really glad it's finished. I do however, like the fabrics I used. I used lots of Disney prints with princesses, Winney the Pooh, animals and my favourite which is in the top right corner, which says Good night little one... very cute. Bright quilts are a relatively new thing for me, I like autumnal colours the best, but I will make more things out of bright stuff.
I backed it in a really sweet flowery fabric.

My latest is those economy blocks and they are really quick and easy to do, I followed the tutorial over at Red Pepper Quilts and found it really easy and they've come out lovely - even if I do say so myself. I found the trimming part a bit boring, but they really helped in squaring them off and having all sharp corners, so I went with it.
