Last night I joined a class at Material Possessions Quilt Shop for the Humbug Bag....I just love these bags!!! These quilted/lined bags are great for hundreds of uses and with only two fat quarters you can make three (a small, med, large sized) bags. I completed the large sized bag last night and love the way it turned out. I used the pincushion fabric from Loralie Designs on the outside and the black & white polka dot fabric for the lining....so cute!! I am going to make the medium and small sized bags today (if I finish all my other Saturday TO DO's) and will post the complete set when done.
I signed up for the Summer Camp 2009 Merry-Go-Round Quilt Workshop that is being held in Laughlin, NV - July 10th thru 12th; these Humbug Bags will be perfect to carry all my sewing/quilting notions in, the cute quilted pincushion fabric will fit right in!!
On a sad note, last night it was announced that Material Possessions Quilt Shop is closing on Thursday......some of the gals have been working at the shop for 10+ years; all the staff/teachers are so personable and helpful, not to mention that it is just right around the corner from my home. I am so going to miss this great quilt shop and the friendly atomosphere!!!
