Obsessed With Anna Maria

This week, I have a few finished projects to show off and I can’t wait! My mom came into town last week for my little sister’s college graduation (congrats, little sis!) and spent the week helping out around my house and my shop. We made a month’s worth of freezer meals, did about 2,348,961 loads of laundry (and folded it!) and she even let me sneak in some sewing time on Saturday. I just wish she lived closer!

On Friday Night, I handed her this little stack of Anna Maria Horner linens. I am kind of obsessed with these and wanted to make something with them the minute they arrived in my shop. I’ve had the multi-tasker tote pattern since I saw Anna Maria’s sample made up in LouLouThi at Quilt Market in Salt Lake.
With a couple extra hands to play with my children, this pattern went together in just a few hours. It is clear, well written, and everything went together just the way it was supposed to. In other words, totally worth the money.

The reason I chose this pattern is the awesome outer pockets and the way this shows off a huge print. Like the ‘Ghost Wing‘ print from the new Field Study Linens. And I had to have something that showed off these feathers.

I love love how it turned out. And I love how the linens stitch up. They are really soft and pliable, but thicker than traditional quilting cotton so the bag has an amazing heft to it. It feels professional.

If you’ve been thinking about trying this pattern, I would say just go step by step and trust it. It all turns out perfect in the end :)

And here’s a little sneak peek of the next quilt I’m working on. I’m so so in love with Shelburne Falls. I didn’t think I’d love it when it first arrived, but now I can’t wait for this to be a new summery quilt!

    Beautiful bag ~ how nice to have your Mom there to help out ~ uninterrupted sewing is blissful! I’ve got this bag pattern ~ time to get it out and make it!
    Love the big hexagons too ~ I’ve got one all made up (mine is one inch) ~ just needs a border and it’s ready to be quilted. I’m such a procrastinator tho ~ who knows when it will get done.

    Wonderful bag! Print with moth and butterflies is perfect for a bag.

    PS. I’m also obsessed with AMH fabrics (I’m constantly hoarding her older fabrics trying to make each collection completed:).
