Finish it up Fridays & Sew & Tell

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God
                                                                                                                                                       Eph 2:8

 Some sewing going on! more productivity, yay! can't believe I am able to do both of my Friday link ups with Crazy Mom Quilts and amylouwho :) (go check both links out!) I am on a roll and the sewing must continue for the couple of orders I got in and the Christmas gifts I want to finish up :)
First up is another one of these totes for my friend Mo, on this one I added a key fob, I have another started for myself too :)


I also finished up this quilt top, it's for a friend from high school  who has 2 grandbabies and wanted me to make one for each one, she loves pink and browns and wanted the hourglass block because it reminds her of a quilt that her grandma had :) it's been a lot of fun to sew this one :)
I almost don't want to send it off when I finish it!



I definetly see me doing one of these hourglass quilts for my home too :)

ps...I just found out another cute blog that is sharing sewing projects, go check them out!

I Ike your bag. Love the hourglass quilt. I can see why you would want to keep it.

I'd definitely have a hard time giving the hour glass quilt away. The pink and brown look wonderful together.

I think the quilt is just beautiful...she chose some very pretty colors and you've pieced if perfectly!

Fobs? How fun!

I'm working on a double hourglass now & love that pattern.

Your fabric choices are beautiful - I love those subtle colors.
