This is where my Southwest Summer Tote stands at this time:
I have gained a whole new respect for bag-making this week. Step-by-slow-step, I'm working my way through the directions as per The Better Bagmaker by Nicole Mallalieu.
The bottom did level out with the weight of the layers. Looks swell using the metal feet I picked up from Bagmaker Supply too.
These are the 1/2" size - they remind me of over-sized, very large brads. Easy to install.
OK, Time to celebrate our March 'Goal' achievements!
Perhaps you would like a bit of incentive first? We have some exciting prizes in the pot:
Bagmaker Supply has offered a $20.00 discount to one lucky prize-winner this month!
Way to go OMG Partier's! We have two new additions this month:
Fat Quarter Shop has generously offered a monthly $25.00 gift certificate!
Have you ever won a FQS gift certificate?
That is what instigated my first order with FQS, and I've been a fan ever since. (yes, I am a regular stalker of the Daily Deal, are you?). Seriously, they are so very generous as top-notch supporters of the online quilting community!
Thank you, Thank you, Fat Quarter Shop!
And guess who else would like to donate to the cause?
Machine Quilting with Style will ship to one random winner this month!
Christa's new book, co-authored with Angela Walters, The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting will be awarded in April - hot off the press!
Please take a few minutes to visit our sponsors to let them know we appreciate them!
And because I appreciate YOU, I curated this pretty Springtime Roll-up for the prize pool too!
Good Luck to everyone, I am looking forward to seeing all the finishes and hope you will take some time to check them out as well!
