QUICK, QUICK I NEED A GIFT!

I don't think you can ever have enough little bags.  Quilt a sandwich that measures 15x 9 then cut to 14x 8 1/2 . Insert zipper and do paper bag corners. Just in time for a friend's birthday dinner tonight.

Gorgeous! And you are right, never too many bags!

Linda said...

Great idea! What a super way to brush up on FMQing, and make a gift at the same time!

P.S. I blogged recently about using one of your designs on a quilt I made for charity. Take a look if you have a chance.

I agree. Absolutely beautiful. I think the recipient of this beautiful bag is going to love it.

I hadn't checked my Google Reader recently and saw this post on Facebook from Sew Cal Gal. You are truly Ms. January. Or Miss January. What a great idea. I love little accessory bags. Really, really love them. In fact, I may hold an accessory bag swap.

Great last minute gift. You can also fill them with fun things, if you have time. Last week I made a small duffle that's pretty similar in design, but with the corners on top and bottom. That was what I quilted with the FMQ design that you showed us, making the heart variation. I filled it with little hair things for my granddaughter's upcoming birthday.

Can I be your friend and have you over for my birthday? I'm sure your friend was thrilled because it's beautiful!

op/=-[7What a great idea! It would be a wonderful way to use my practice FMQ sandwiches. Thank you so much for the January tutorial. I was really amazed to see that what I drew on paper (misshapen leaves and all) showed up almost identically in my quilting. Quite the eye opener!

Your feathers are absolutely beautiful! Do you have a tutorial for this? I have so appreciated your help this month! Thank you for all the time you put into this!

Thank you again!

I'm with Kristen....great idea for using the bits and bobbles we'll be quilting over the next 11 months. I think you just gave me the idea for Xmas gifts for my quilt group this year!

Also, thank you so much for your tutorial w/Sewcalgal in January. Your tutorial was great - it started me at a point where I didn't want to run and hide under the covers (although I still am making wonky leaves!). And, your tip list - well, I'll print it out and refer to it often, I'm sure.
