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!
