…a paper pieced block (Baltic Star) which we incorporated into a zippered pouch.  Paper piecing???  That’s right and no one had any difficulty at all completing their star or their pouch!  One of the best things about making a zippered pouch is they always come in handy and they are easily adjusted to whatever size you might need or want.  Never mind they require so very little fabric so they are great for using up those scraps that we all …

As you continue to develop your skills as a sewist and/or a quilter, your collection of fabrics will (hopefully) continue to grow to epic proportions!  Having a fabric stash is a funny thing.  When you begin a project, you peruse your stash to see what you might want to use and, for me, it is never anything from my stash.  A new project requires new fabric because THAT fabric is for my stash.  It reminds me of a cartoon I …

Painting on fabric!  No one had any idea what this month’s mystery project was going to be.  With “one half yard of white, washed and ironed (no starch) fabric” being the only item on the supply list, everyone seemed quite perplexed in trying to figure out what we would be doing today!  Well, it didn’t take long for Debbie to bring everyone up to speed, sharing a variety of completed projects she had previously done with fabric paint.
