First and foremost - last month I participated in the Scrappy girls club zipper bag swap. I'm really late in posting what I received and what I sent. Very sorry about that.
These are the wonderful goodies I received.
Ok, so there is the zipper pouch that contained those grate pieces of fabric and then the zipper key ring followed by the little zip bag that contained clips all with the great little card that came with a great dip recipe.
I am facinated by the zipper technique that she used. I hope you can see it in the photos. It is only half a zipper circled around. It is so very cool.
All three of the items used this zipper technique. The key ring had two pulls and opened in multiple places.
Even the little bag had this great zipper. After a little research I found the pattern for the bag I received. And of course I had to buy it so I can try this out as soon I get a free minute.
I did read through it and it looks so easy to do. Maybe by the weekend.
In return, I made my partner a Lola Pouch.
With a matching eyeglass and tissue holder.
I made a note card using a scrap form the lining.
Next up - I took a class on curve piecing. I did make a quilt many years ago using curves and once it was finished I swore off them. Our guild offered a class on piecing curves and I thought I'd give them a try. I am so glad I did.
I had a very successful class. I enjoyed using a pattern as well as doing the free form curve. I enjoyed curves so much that I came home and in 3 days managed to make this lap size top.
The pattern is Urban Abacus, a QCR Pattern that I picked up with the Quick Curve Ruler when I was on vacation last month. ( I had high hopes for the class )
And last but not least for this post are my scraps.
These are 4 of the 7 blocks I have made so far using my 2.5 in square scraps as leaders and enders. I'm hoping to get 16 blocks done to make a third quilt for the H2H 2016 project.
There are at least 2 more projects to report on but they will have to wait for next week. Maybe they will be joined by that cute little pouch.
