My Sister-in-Law and I went to a favorite quilt store in our area “The Wild Rose Quilt Shop” in Orting, WA here’s a link http://www.thewildrosequiltshop.com/…in search of a wonderful ruler she was getting me as a Thank You Gift, called the 90 Degree Double-Strip Creative Grids Ruler.
I am excited to try this technic with the book called Strip-Smart Quilts: 16 Designs from One Easy Technique (That Patchwork Place) (the other part of the gift). There are some great quilts in this book. The technic looks very simple, quick and easy. I have looked through my stash and I have a (5) 1-yard cut fabric stash that I can make a pretty good size lap/cot quilt with.
In the Process of finding the ruler, we obviously had to do a little shopping.. (of Course) and We both fell in love with a bag. It’s called A Schlepping Bag “A Giant Take It to Class Bag” the pattern is distributed by Anything But Boring. I love it and it will be perfect to take with us to classes. It fits an 18 x 24 mat..and you can make it to fit several different size ruler to keep them all safe. We both found prequilted fabrics that we liked to make the bag go together a bit easier, but you can obviously make your own quilted fabric if you should so desire. I look forward to personalizing my bag as soon as I can get a day to make it! 🙂
Here’s a picture from the pattern cover.. Pretty COOL isn’t it!! Love the idea. I have an older bag that I made but the mat is side ways..and I always get it caught on something..HAHA.. This one will stay closer to my body and not flop around as much! Lovin this idea!!
Till Next Time….
