Friendship Bag Swap 2009
How cute is this?
I took part in a Friendship Bag Swap by Quilting Gallery. The pattern was so simple... thanks to the great tutorial @ p.s. i quilt you can make this in an evening. I ended up making one as a trial which is now the home of a beanie baby or two in my daughter's room. I had never tried free motion quilting before, but I think with practice it could be really fun.
My secret partner was Jen over @ Miss. Punkie Pie. I know she loved it... she told me so! I used some "scrappy" strips I had and the bag turned out really great. I added a decoupaged picture frame, a covered sketch book, and some extra strips for her stash.
Next up, Quilting Gallery is hosting a Christmas Swap featuring Inchie Ornament. Nadine Ruggles @ DreamWeaverQuilts has shared her love of Inchie Quilts with a simplistic tutorial for making these ornaments. I have never made one of these super mini quilts so this will something new for me... wish me luck! I have a feeling these may be very addictive!!!
