January UFO & WIP Link Up

Today I am pleased to be able to link up with Julie’s link up on the Crafty Quilter blog.

I managed to finish 3 more project bags to get myself organized in spite of having to make an unplanned trip to Vancouver, British Columbia to see about a life altering treatment for DH. I know, right?!? Priorities!

Luckily I had finished one bag to take some handwork with me to audition fabric and design for a hand pieced Kaleidoscope Quilt.

My bag for hand piecing work; holds fabric, cutting mat, rotary cutter, templates, pins, etc,

Then I managed to make some vinyl windowed pouch bags to hold fabrics, patterns, and notions for projects. One complete project can be neatly organized in a pouch. Can you say LOVE?

Completed window bags with mini vinyl pocket for labels.

Both of these different bags were made with scraps and leftovers from my stash. I have oodles of zippers, vinyl, batting scraps and like everyone else……scraps and strings. It was fun to play with the strings and not have a pattern in mind and I love the Velcro closures to keep it all contained. I did audition one pouch with my blocks, batting, thread and backing fabric for the quilt that just needs to be finished for my third great grandchild who is due to arrive in 2 weeks. It all fit quite nicely. I will be making a couple more of these pouches that are larger or perhaps 2 sided for my larger projects.

Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you all have had time to fondle fabric or play in your stashes! 😄 Carol Andrews

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
