Hi Brenda you mentioned your group so I thought I would join and check it out. Looks like a lot of the Art quilt group are also on this group. I will have to check out some of the earlier posts. It looks like it has been awhile since anyone posted.

That does sound lovely Charlotte. I suppose that means fabric shopping then - lovely. LOL Thank you everyone.

Whoa -- not just a great idea but the directions how to do it!  Way to go Charlotte!

Add side borders in a lovely batik and you could make a table runner. To add the borders one at a time, you sandwich the finished piece between two strips of fabric and a strip of batting ( fabric strips face down and a strip of batting on the underside) and stitch your seam. Fold it back out and press the seams and you have an instant border you can now quilt. Finish the other three sides (I'd do the long sides first and use your walking foot to sew the seam for an easier job). Instant gratification! :D

jewellery roll, pencil case, knitting needle roll, all would be lovely.

Comment by Gwen/OH on October 12, 2013 at 7:22am

Oh, very pretty, by the way. 

I am working on an art piece and find that since I took a b-i-g break from them, it's not coming along as I thought it should. I do this "I know better than that!" when I make a goof-up...hopefully I will get back in sinc...
