My 1st 2019 Finish

My 1st Finish of 2019 might just be my most difficult! I worked for 4 nights to get this completed (it was already quilted and cut out. It's the Runs with Scissors bag and it compliments the Take a Stand bag pattern. This was after the 2nd night. All that binding and those zippers take a lot of time.
 Here's the point I was putting the zipper in on the 3rd night.
 Then the binding had to go on through all those layers. It doesn't look pretty, but it's done! This is the inside of the tote.
 This is the back side.
 This is the front side. Both have a zippered pocket.
 After that, I needed a break! It almost broke me. I cut out this sample while I was at lunch break and last night I was excited to get it sewn together. It literally took me just a bit over an hour. It has so many good lessons in it... cutting, strip sets, individual pieces, HST's, flying geese, and sashing. I'm going to be teaching an all day, Friday day time class in March during spring break and I'm excited to try this new pattern to teaching Quilting Cutting & Piecing Basics.
