Today I have a design table and a plan.
These piles of fabrics will be turned into Christmas gifts by this afternoon – at least that is the plan. The gift exchange will be tonight and I would hate to have to give out IOUs.
I have been busy quilting customer quilts – almost done but haven’t had time to do anything else which is why I haven’t posted for the past few days. Last Friday was the ECQG Holiday party. I was asked to teach a make and take. I have done it a couple of other years. This year I taught a cute little bobbin flower pin. I cut the fabric (red batik) with my zig-zag rotary cutter blade, bought the bobbins and pinbacks from eBay. They were packaged up in little kits that we handed out. It only takes a few minutes and everyone looked festive when wearing their new flower pins.
The first one (red) is one made during make and take. The black and white one was made last year by my friend Janice for all the Piecemakers. I stole her idea (with her permission). Is anyone interested in a tutorial? It is very simple.
