Off to a good start

I had a day off last week and actually used it to sew.  I am a part of a Doll Quilt Swap on Facebook.  I have been making them each month since it started except for December.  Not much got done in December.
So here is my swap quilt for this month.  My partner likes red and white.  Valentine's day is next month so I thought this was fitting.  She is also a fan of Modern quilting.  I have never made anything 'Modern' so this is a first.

This is also a first with applique too!  The quilting is a zigzag with small and large zigs.  It looks like a heart beat.
I also decided to make a little bag for my partner too.  This is the Drawstring bag by Jeni Baker.

I helped a friend make items for her store she is starting in March.  We made zippered coin purses all day long. :)  It was a fun day.
I need to finish some projects before I start anything new.  Hopefully I will have something to share with you before next month.
