Although Pat is widely acknowledged as our resident bag-making expert, Valerie gave her a run for her money at our October quilting weekend! In addition to her boxy pouch, seen here, she also made lots and lots of other bags, using a variety of techniques.
|Valerie is making a gazillion draw string bags to give out at a Christmas party for Veterans. We lost track of how many were in the two piles.|
|Valerie is a vinyl-virgin no more! She plunged in and made two different types of bags with vinyl accents. Naturally, I bought some vinyl on the way home...|
|The bag on the left is from the pattern, Safe Trip by Cabbage Rose, and the bag at right is Bridget's Bagettes by Atkinson Designs. Love the sock monkey fabric!|
|These black bags are Valerie's own design for a friend's cell phone.|
|I bet that Matthew and Ryan can put A LOT of candy in these bags!|
Joannie spent most of her weekend quilting a baby quilt for her sister Mary. Mary's son and his wife are expecting a baby--Mary's first grandchild!
|A joint effort, stitched by Mary and quilted by Joannie.|
Lynne is working on these very cool blocks with curved piecing. This pattern is Steam Punk by Australian designer, Jen Kingwell.
|Lynne has a great eye for color and pattern.|
|I spy a lion! What do you see?|
Pugs and kisses,
