2,5" charm square challenge MCQ

Have you heard? The Modern Cologne Quilters have posted a challenge that runs till end of February. Read all about it on their site here and here

I have recently not had the amount of time to sew I would have liked, but some other changes happened that (dare I say) have been worth giving up patchwork time. I still intend to keep my blog, albeit with fewer posts. My aim is 1 a month.

This weekend my daughter was invited to a birthday party and I decided to use that occasion as an excuse to use up a mini charm pack that May gave me.

I made a drawstring bag with an Aloha Girl (Fig Tree & Co) and some linen.  I love the combination between the soft colours and the rough linen.

Some simple crosshatch quilting and voila, gift bag done! 

I have another project in mind, I hope it will be ready in time for the modern patch monday from next monday. But first things first, this week I'll need to prepare for our very first MCQ retreat this weekend! We are all looking forward to it so much. What to bring? I will get back to you later this week in that as I fully intend to post my packing list.

till next time,
