Quilts-in-Progress Sacks

My wonderful Aunt Sarah is a fabulous quilter. She currently keeps her works-in-progress in grocery bags. I just put these in the mail to her, so her quilts-to-be may soon enjoy more upscale homes. Thank you for sharing your gift of creativity with me, Sarah! 

Incidentally, I found this iron-on-transfer at Goodwill for 59 cents. It was in its original packaging and still worked, though it had been printed in 1993! The instructions and illustrations were amusing (they recommended adding Puff Paint embellishments!). There was one flaw in the transfer, which is why I added the fabric frame. In this case, neccessity is the mother of cuteness! :)

It is such a life lesson that if you do what you can with what you have, things will turn out brilliantly. I spent a couple days being irked at the flaw, but it was all part of God's plan to make the bag even better! Note to self. Do not sit around waiting for perfect circumstances. Be patient in reflecting on how to use what you have, be open to a better way, and get busy when it is revealed to you. God will make it all turn out just right! :)
