Beth was trying out a tutorial for a Double Friendship Star that she had seen at the Missouri Quilt Company. She is planning to make this quilt for a friend, so she made a sample block to try the technique and see if she liked her color choices. It's always a good idea to make a sample block!
|The colors are just lovely. They remind me of wine.|
Karen, who is one of our fastest sewers, whipped up this cute little bag for her stepson's girlfriend. The bag is from Amy Butler's book, Style Stitches. Note that Karen enlarged the pattern by 140% (this was the largest setting on her copy machine), the one shown in the book looks more like a change purse.
|This darling little bag has a zippered top.|
