I've had a busy and productive 2 weeks since my last WIP post!
This past week has been all about the bags.....the For Pleat Sake bags to be exact! This is a tutorial from Lisa Lam, and I made two of them!!
One for practice, and to work out the kinks I usually put into things!
it turned out amazing!!!
love the Echino fabric, and I added a much needed zip pocket.
For the second one, I put in 2 zip pockets! I also interfaced the outer fabric as well as the lining to give it more of a substantial feel.
I also added an invisible magnetic closure.
I am thrilled beyond words with this one.....
Love this fabric so much! Are those glasses not the cutest thing?? I love the red leather handles too!
As I said, two 7" zip pockets and I also added a key hook.
I think the lining is a Japanese print, but I didn't have any of the selvage to check! it sure is gorgeous though!
I think I am done with bags for a long time now!
Another Curve It Up QAL block was ready to go this week, and once again, another spectacular take on a traditional block- this one is rail fence!
Isn't it amazing what a curve will do! I'm sure liking this Bella collection by Lotta Jansdotter too.
Naturally, Christmas crafting has to work it's way into the mix as well!
I did a little wall hanging from a pattern by Sonja @ Artisania, and it can be found in Quiltmaker Nov/Dec 2012.
It was a near disaster! You can read about it here!
I also have started a new table runner. The Sunbonnet Sue blocks are from a pattern by Jennifer @ Sew hooked.
The Ho! Ho! Ho! in the centre is just simply pieced, with a strip of ribbon for the exclamation mark. I just need to do a bit more quilting on it, bind it, and call it a finish!
I am working on a block for Nicky in our Star of Africa bee! Almost Nicky!!
It is supposed to be Anne of Green Gables!
I tell you, these ladies raise the bar every month!
Other than the Curve It Up QAL, my UFO quilts are sitting idle on the sidelines until after Christmas probably. Unless I get a spurt of energy! As if!
We will be having our second meeting of the Saskatoon Modern Quilters Guild on Sunday! We are certainly in the growing stages, but it is so nice to meet local quilters.
Today, I'll be linking up with Lee @ Freshly Pieced.
And with Monika @ The Needle and Thread Network.
Have a great sewing week everyone!
