Weekly update: a good start

I have a good start on the tote bag that's my OMG for April.  It will be donated to a silent auction at the AAUW-IL convention as a fundraiser for the Gender Equity Fund.  The blue-green colorway is for the AAUW colors and the 3.5" blocks are equal signs.

The photo shows both panels of the bag. One of them is folded in half.   The "sun" doesn't symbolize anything; it just adds a pop of contrasting color to the subtle blocks. I haven't fused it on yet in case I change my mind about using it.

These outtakes will go in the orphan blocks box for the time being.

  1. I love these colors. And, I'm impressed you've jumped right in on your OMG project. You will definitely get this one done in time. I like the pop of color.

  2. Beautiful colors for your bag. And I love the sun! It really brings out the aqua colors, too.

  3. I hope the sun makes it into the final construction. It really adds a lot of sparkle.

  4. I love the sun too. It will give the tote a beach feel. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  5. again you always get me in trouble, make me want to start something new. I have a bag in the planning stage and now want to move it to the doing stage.

  6. Very pretty. I really like that sun.


Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I can't respond to every comment, but be assured that I appreciate each one.
