Fabric Box



At my recent retreat, I made this fabric box from orphan blocks in the scrapheap. (The scrapheap is a bunch of scraps from quilters attending the retreat - it goes in a pile for people to rummage through as needed.) I used this as a warm-up project before I made the Dr Seuss bag.



The free pattern is from Val Laird and can be found here. I'm surprised at how sturdy it is and how well it stands up by itself. A very useful project and I will probably make one again sometime.



Isn't it amazing how life pushes forward so fast? And it feels like forever since you've been away but it's only been a few days? And now it's September and before you know it it will be Christmas...
