I am in the mood to make bags but I had to clean and get ready to go to Texas, I made a bunch of those cute Clematis Wristlet by Blue Calla for Christmas a couple of years ago and I bought some pink flamingo fabric to make one for my mother but just didn't get it done. Maybe I will take it with me and do it at Barb's.
Barb and I have both made a quilt using this fabric and we used a pattern from the book "One Wonderful Curve". We are going to post it as soon as I get mine quilted which as you can guess will have to wait till I get back from Texas. Here is the book and a little info.
One Wonderful Curve
Using the Quick Curve Ruler to make a one-size, curved block from simple pieced shapes, this one-size, one-curve block is the basis for each of the amazingly unique quilts. Complete how-to instructions and illustrations. Easy enough for an experienced beginner and challenging enough for an advanced quilter. Note: the Quick Curve Ruler is required and sold separately.
