A while back, the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild had a "fabric swap" we all brought fabrics that we no longer needed in our stashes and made a very large pile of fabric on the floor. On the count of three we dove in and chose fabrics that we each wanted to add to our stash. It was quite a "free for all" luckily, no one was harmed. All unclaimed fabric was donated for charity quilts.
I tried to be particular with the fabrics I brought home and choose only fabrics that I knew I would use. I am please to report that I've already used some! Woot!!!
I made this cross body bag to use at quilt market this spring. I used Kathy Mack's Mail Sack pattern but added a pocket to the outside. It is a great place to pin all the fun buttons I collected at market. The heavy weight fabric is perfect for this bag that holds a lot of weight. The lining is a batik that has been in my stash for many years. I score bonus points for that, right?
Next up is a pair of Parsley pajama shorts for Miss P. She loves them.
They are made out of a lightweight searsucker stripe with a tiny sliver of silver metallic woven in.
Now that we know which size fits her she will be making her OWN Parsly pajama pants out of this swap score.
Thanks ladies, I don't know who brought these fun fabrics to the swap but I am thrilled with the projects we are making with them.
