I’m writing a bag pattern! And some other stuff

I’m working on a bag pattern at the moment which will have two zips the front and one at the back (oh and one inside, lots of zips!), it will look a little bit like this…

But for now it looks like this, ahem, yeah. No words written or stitches made, but if you’d like to be a tester for the pattern, probably January at this rate, give me a shout and I’ll eventually send you something!

I’m also a good way through the three Necessary Clutch Wallets (series of posts on the Patterns to Print blog about these) and I loved sewing the card sections. It was a little tricky to figure it out but once I did it was a lot of fun.

Also this month the Chandelier quilt is in Popular Patchwork magazine.


My Flower Mill pattern for BasicGrey is now in shops such as Fat Quarter Shop and I hope to have one to give away soon too, postie permitting…

In Shine Bright quilt news, I’ve booked in with Penny in Telford to use her new longarm machine the day after training has been delivered, so I’ll be quilting it up on Sunday 22nd. The cost is £40 for four hours which I think is pretty great, even with the 60 mile trek over the top of Birmingham (website here). I’m not sure what my pattern will be yet but it’s likely to be an all-over since it’s my first try. I’m very excited!

Also this is a call out for people who are real life quilting pals but met online first- I’m writing an article for Popular Patchwork in the next couple of weeks and I could do with about four pairs/groups to  interview. Please comment here if you can help! Thank you!
