Back when we had our Exhibition I selected this book for our P & Q Group's library, from the merchants mall.. 2 other ladies have had it out but I spied it being brought back last time and have had a turn. I have actually read it from cover to cover (a quick, easy read )and have selected 2 projects from it I wish to make.
I have started ( and could finish today but I want to show my group it partly made, so they may see how simple it is. ) Quite a different sort of bag... LARGE and constructed back to front, as you begin with the backing and batting and add the fabric top - foundation piecing.
As it only requires 26 of the 40 strips in a jelly roll I have selected the very brightest from the JR I got with the gift voucher my son sent me last December. ( thanks Jim )The rest of the roll will be just right for another project I have fabrics to match in pastels.( pink even! )
The Moda Jelly Roll is called All About Colour - Cozy Quilt Design . # 3405 JR.
These are the lovely brights I am using. ( I didn't have a JR of servicable browns the picture shows ) Mine will be a BRIGHT bag.
I have sewn the first 3 rows on ( bottom of photo )and it is going well.The others are just lying ready. I'll show a photo when it's completed. It should be very useful. Now back to my cushion project.
* Note to Meggie. I hope you are feeling better today. I agree about garden photos making the garden look better - it's cause the photographer selects the good part and cuts out the rest!
