I had an email from Sue Zipkin; she is so excited about the quilt I made using her scrumptious fabrics that she has posted it on her blog, and what a lovely blog it is too, definately worth a look. Today is a beautiful sunny day, much better for photos than the other day.
It is sooo awesome when deisgners are excited about you using/making their designs! Don't mind the quilt looking a little rumpled today, dh has spent a few evenings snoozing under it in front of the tv!
I remember last year when Lynette Anderson posted her cushion design that I made for my grandparents, you couldn't wipe the grin off my face!
Love this button I found at Kerry's.
You can buy the Japanese Indigo jellyrolls from Karen at The Stitching Post, in Katoomba. She said she has seen a stunning quilt made with them. I made the Melly & Me 'Black Forrest' bag.
There is LOTS of room inside, it is a really good size bag. I did do things a little different, as usual! I made an extra section inside the bag, was going to do two but thought I would see how the first one would turn out, and it turned out great!
I used a plain navy (Moda Solids) for the lining and side panels.
If you look closely you can see that I did use three jelly strips sewn together for the pockets, the highly patterned strip I used was ideal as it isn't easy to spot unless you are looking closely.
*sigh* the picture caught a shadow highlighting the seam on the left hand side..... so this wasn't the best picture to show you!
