Jumbo Sized

Sometimes I want to
try something new.
A gal brought this darling PETITE bag
 to quilt group (pic below).
It just stood up so straight and tall
 and was just a fun little size.
I totally wanted to make one.
She got me started on it - 
but then I had to go home. :(
The pattern is the Freeport Gatherer.
Good directions and there's a video online
that I watched 6 times.
Calls for Duet-Fuse-II fusible batting.
Worked great. 
Pattern and batting are in the shop
because I want to make more.
Well...I sewed and I sewed
and my petite little bag
turned out
jumbo size.
I probably should have counted
her strips, measured and perhaps
looked at the picture on the pattern.
But I love it.
It is a great size.
Pattern tells you exactly how to
make the handles,
no big deal.
Love my Minny Muu polar bears.
Perfect project for left over jelly roll strips.
This basket took half a jelly roll
and one bag of batting.
Looking forward to
paying closer attention
and trying again!

Pixelated Rose Quilt KITS

Oh, this was a beauty at
last year's quilt market.
It was designed by Trish Poolson
for Riley Blake.
Riley Blake kitted the Yellow Rose of Texas quilt,
but not the pink one, so
we've kitted it for you!
All the colors are labeled,
and all fabric for the quilt top
and binding is included.
The Pixelated Rose Quilt Kit 
in Pink and Yellow
are in the shop!

Cross Weave Ideas - what to make?

Great pieces to use for backgrounds or
in place of linen.  
There's a cozy warmth to it, and
it's a nice break from white.
What should we make?
Let's look at some projects...
Hexie purse by taunjalynn

Ombre Stitches by insidethepaperbox

Wool Block of the Month by mahquilter
Strawberries - cotton_contessa

Alphabet - alatimer

Purple clutch by poppylanestitches

And these two are by Camille - thimbleblossoms

I'm going to make Camille's Dwell pattern from her
Simply Retro book
with black cross weave as the background

with Zen Chic's solid bundle for the houses.
I'm excited to work with these solids and to
make a house quilt.
It's going to be gift for an old neighbor.
Just need to figure out priority wise where it fits. :)

Yardage and the Zen Chic bundle are in the shop!
What would you make with it? 
Or what have you made?
