It’s Schoolhouse today at Quilt Market. I’m a little sad to be missing all the excitement. On the other hand, it’s been nice not to have the rush of sewing, followed by the rush of traveling and all that entails (both money and energy drains). It feels right to be sitting here enjoying some sunny afternoons with Stinka, writing patterns and thinking about what needs doing before the end of the year.
Speaking of patterns, I’m almost done with the next one for the shop. I love this one! I just need to simplify one step, get some photos for the pattern cover and then I’ll list it. The bag is incredibly practical and there are two size options. Here’s what the smaller one looks like.I’ll give you all the details when I put it up in the shop. Of course, I’ll have plenty of other photos to show you as well. I’m calling this one Traveling Companion because its boxy shape is suited to the type of packing a trip requires–whether that trip is a day trip or a weekend getaway.
A large version of the bag is debuting at Quilt Market in Jane Sassaman’s new Prairie Chic collection. More on all of that gorgeous fabric in a few days. So many pretty things to share. I can’t wait.
Have a Happy Friday!
