Here are my first finishes for May. The pattern for this bag and block keeper is by Leanne Beasley. It came together quite quickly and I am so pleased with how it looks. I used batting in the block keeper to hold the blocks in place and purchased some foam core board to put in the pockets on either side to make the outer pieces stiff. The top photo shows the construction of the pocket which is divided in two and goes on the outside of the bag. The pocket size is quite generous and has some hand quilting on it. I am going to make a folder to put my threads, needles and scissors in to put in the smaller of the two pockets. I do lots of embroidery so this will be put to good use.

I have been working on a Mystery Quilt with my friends Liz and Chris from NSW. We are going to have a reveal of the quilt top or finished quilt in September at the Lismore Quilters Camp at Evans Head. I have been working on the installments and am up to Number 4. Below is the fabric I have used. When the fabric pieces are cut or joined together, bags are used to keep track of all the pieces. Long way to go so will show a few more photos next time.
Sorry this has been such a long post but glad you made it to the end. Well better go and spend some time with Hubby before he goes to bed. Till next time Happy stitching.........
