Spring time weather here in Galveston Today!

Sorry, I do not have photos today of the spring time weather in Galveston.
It is beautiful today.
The weatherman did say some showers tomorrow.
I finally completed one of my UFO's from last year. I saw this pattern at a quilt shop and thought "hum", I can do this. Plus, I am alway looking for a great organizer.
Here is my new purse insert.

I had to put this away, due to keeping calm!

While staying in Galveston, I decided to pack it along.  It was raining when we first arrive. So I decided to take another crack at it and finally got it all done. 
Not sure if I will make another one.
Also, today I completed my small quilt for January's Small Quilt Talk Group.
Feedsack Flower Garden
 This pattern was great to use up all those great scraps I had in my bin, plus great practice for me.  I am still pretty new to quilting. You can tell with my FMQ! 
Notice the fabric is the same as the purse insert above.
I just love scraps!
The pattern is from Kathleen Tracy's book American Doll Quilts. You can find her book here. I made my small quilt different from the pattern in the book.  I did not pack a lot of fabric and scraps with me and the nearest quilt shop is in Texas City.

If you are looking for inspiration, head over to Madame Samm's blog for another great blog hop.
