Friday Progress Report

This week has shown some progress on a couple of projects. Blooming Snowball from my Texas power sewing is ready to quilt, I just don't know how yet!
  It measures 60"x70".
The modern quilt I pieced before the TX trip was lacking a border so I added a 2" white strip to float the center design then made about 80 HST's to finish it.
 Now I have a corner dilemma, and after a trial of a pink triangle
I think I prefer a plain white corner.
What do you think?
In addition I finished up the iPad stand and have been using it in bed and it works nicely.
 The little decoration on the top includes a loop to make it easy to move the bag around when not in use.
 It even works with the little green iPad cover Leslie passed on to me for my iPad Air 1, it did not fit her Air 2
If you know me at all you know I love to use up scraps especially when it saves me money!
Looking at the cute paper gift bags in the stores I choked on the prices for small bags and decided to make my own. The scraps I chose are approximately 8"x10", if they were smaller than that I added a contrast trim to enlarge them then sewed a one inch hem at the top and threaded a length of narrow ribbon through. I sewed the little triangles across the bottom to make them three dimensional like a paper grocery bag and much more useful.
And they cost me exactly zero outlay, I already had all the supplies, I love that!
