The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.

Yep. My plan for the messenger bag went awry. I’m really disappointed that it didn’t work out but I’ll try that pattern again when I have some free time. What I wound up doing instead was simply winging it. My end result probably wasn’t quite as… polished as I’d like. But, wow, I had fun just randomly putting things together and quilting it all.

My own block–the hedgehog!–wound up in the hands of an uber-talented sewist. I’ve seen the finished product on Instagram and will post a picture of it as soon as I have it in hand. (I missed the August guild meeting so I didn’t get a chance to pick it up.) I am SO excited for it to get here. It is straight-up awesome!
