And now for something entirely different....
Can you look at those Victory bags and not think of the Jetson's cartoons from the '60s?
I started my morning templating the inside of the bag with cardstock. As you can see, there were several challenges including a 1.5 inch difference from the bottom of the bag to the area flush with the lid, some weird angles, and a 2"x 3" block for some type of equipment that sticks up in the bottom corner of the bag.
Having done this part, I am now completely re-thinking how I am going to divide this bag up.
I better go take a ride and give it more thought.

I opted for a mix of methods for this section. I am using a bias strip method for the stems, but back basting for the flowers and leaves.
I had abandoned this project earlier finding that it was too busy of a pattern for my taste. I also don't like making the same thing multiple times, so I have opted to make each of the corner floral designs different, blending flowers from the provided designs for #3 & 4. I also changed the shape of the vase.
I'm afraid I'm losing momentum again, so another post may be after American football starts and I have something else to distract me while I stitch.

I failed to take photos of round 3, but it involved taping the basic size of the strip I wanted to end up with.
But I can't stay interested in this for very long....so I'm moving on to some applique. Or maybe a different pieced project inspired by this Geometric Gradation Quilt by Geta Grama
