I love being married to a math wiz. He did all the measurements for this quilt top. He busted out the trig to make sure the seam allowances would be correct. (The triangles had his brain humming.) Who knew that baby boy#2 would have his quilt done before Jacob's. I never did finish Jake's and now I hate the fabric I chose. Someday I might pull it out and finish it. I've learned my lesson... use large squares and a simple pattern design. (Blanket made from leftover scrap pieces.)

There is a great tutorial here for this hobo sack. I changed it up a bit by using two fabrics and stenciling on the front. I plan to make other bags for other toys. It should be a great way to help Jake learn to spell words and organize his toys. Don't look to close at the top stitch at the top of the bag, my bobbin was giving me fits and I had already picked the stitch out once and I wasn't going to do it again today. Maybe tomorrow I'll fix it so it looks better. Until then here it is...
