At our Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild meeting today, we exchanged zip bags. We put them into a plain bag and choose blindly (although for some reason, I seem to end up with Heather's most of the time! Lucky me!)
This was a fun challenge. I used the Donkeys in Galoshes (so cute!) and some Stitched in ColorFMF, Seeds, dots, and other random fabrics from my stash. Heather did a short demo at our last meeting and I followed her directions, including using fusible fleece and cutting a square out of the bottom corners to square the bottom of the bag. One of the bags was a different, square shape (made by Mandy). Everyone oohed and ahhed!
|This is the bag Heather made that I got to bring home with me! Love the linen!|
|This is my contribution being held by our fearless leader, Heather.|

Not as much at Show and Tell as usual. Nancy shared a iron carryall that you can iron on. Might need to make one of those. Mandy shared a wristlet made from salvages. I need to bring her some of mine. I don't know if I will ever be motivated enough to make anything from mine, although I do think it looks cool.
Deb shared her strip quilt that she is having Maria quilt for her. ( I started one that will be similar but with dotted black in the place of white). Hers is gorgeous! Hope mine turns out as nicely.
