Do You Know About Quilter

If you want to see what thousands of quilt blogs have to say today (or any other day) check out Quilter Blogs. It has a feed of posts from all the quilt blogs it follows so you can drop by and see what is being posted currently. There is also a list by name so you can find a specific quilt blog (like Urban Quilter which was added recently). It is a great way to find new blogs to follow and to be inspired by all the great quilting going on in the blogosphere.

WIP: Coin/Card Purses

I started playing around a few months ago with a design for a little zippered pouch to hold some money and a card or two. My friend Lisa tested out the first version and determined that it worked well, but was a little bigger than it needed to be.  This past week I resized my design and made a second version which measures approximately 3" x 5". The bird fabric is a pocket, the other side has another bird-fabric pocket and there is a zipper across the top. I'm pleased with this design. I have a friend with a fondness for birds who will probably get this test-model.  
Once I had the pattern and the assembly process worked out it was time to pick out fabrics and cut pieces for a batch of these to go into my Etsy Shop
Pouch, pocket, lining fabrics, and zippers for 6 more coin/card pouches like the yellow bird one.
I hope to get these made up, and may make another batch for Christmas presents, this week.

Saturday Snapshot

I missed a few Saturdays but here, as promised, is the fish quilt. I used fabric, stuffing, various trims and beads and some more artificial leaf bits to make the various fish. I am linking this up with Saturday Snapshot at West Metro Mommy.
