WIP plus 1

I seem to be a day late on this Wednesday update thing; yesterday I was out of town, so that is my excuse this week. And next week I will on vacation, so no update at all.
This week I finished my quilt. I was really excited to get it done, and wanted to finish before my travel began. So I began the binding Friday night and finished it Saturday morning, and flew out Saturday afternoon. Actually finished the corners today; just have some loose threads to trim.
I am curious about washing it. My boss advised me to leave no larger than a fist unquilted; however, the instructions I read left entire 8.5 inch squares un-quilted. So I am considering going back over them with some simple pattern to keep the batting from balling up.

I am full of ideas this week. I have seen some quilted bags and purses that I think I would like to make. Although this is not the next project I am intending to work on, I think it will be the next one I make for my own interest. I just took a couple fat quarters and folded them to see how it would look. Have some black to line it with. And I don't know if I would go simple fabric, or do it quilted, going around the circles.
