2-Cent Tuesday

ANNOUNCEMENT: PLEASE FOLLOW ME @ivory_spring2 and help me rebuild my 20k+ follower base ON INSTAGRAM WHILE I SORT OUT MY ORIGINAL ACCOUNT. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

***

It’s time for Quilter’s World Summer 2022 issue, especially if you are participating in the Norfolk Sampler Quilt Along. If you aren’t aware of the ongoing Quilt Along, click HERE for information. Our next check-in is this Thursday. And it’s NEVER too late to join.

Back to Quilter’s World Summer 2022 issue – my FASHIONISTA quilt made cover! Click HERE to purchase the issue. I have more than one projects featured in this issue.

A girl has to have her totes, purses and handbags! I am not as talented as many of you who make ACTUAL quilted bags. So, I settled for making two-dimensional ones. And I was able to make the quilt quickly with a jelly roll + background + outer border fabric!

Click HERE if you want to make your own handbag quilt with the same fabrics I used.

Click HERE if you want to shop around to find the jelly roll of your choice to make the handbag blocks!

STAY TUNED – this project is what I am mulling over for our next Leaders/Enders sewlong project! I will keep you posted.

And I do have 2-cents regarding Jelly Rolls for you today.

#1. Before unraveling your jelly roll, dab the raw edges with painter’s tape, or a lint roller, or a handheld vacuum to rid of fabric dust. You will end up with a cleaner cutting surface!

#2. If you have to press your strips — do just that, press and not iron & stretch so that your strips don’t end up wonky!

I shared my 2-cents. Now it’s your turn!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely rest of your week!

  1. Love you new Fashionista quilt pattern! I have it downloaded and looking forward to improvising it into a smaller baby size quilt. You always have such sweet patterns. Thank you, Wendy!

  2. Hi,
    I know that you had issues with internet, sorry to tell you that this is what I get when I press the link for instagram at the bottom of your mail this morning. :-(

  3. Such a cute and clever “girly” quilt. More and more I am loving using precuts. They don’t seem to add to my stash quite as quickly as yardage 😂!! Stunning idea to eliminate the extra lint on the jelly roll 😁.
