I am fortunate enough to have my daughter enrolled at a fabulous preschool just a few minutes up the road. She spends her days playing *hard* under the watchful eye of four amazing teachers.
In just a few weeks we’ll be moving up at school, but I wanted to give each of her teachers a token of our appreciation. So this week I’m taking a mini-break from my Summer Solstice Quilt, and starting a few “quilt as you go” panels. I haven’t settled on exactly what I’ll be making with them. Pencil bags? Makeup bags? Gift card holders? Yeah, something like that.
This isn’t my first time using the quilt-as-you-go-technique, but I think I’ve improved since my first mis-adventure. I took Tara Rebman‘s “Quilt-As-You-Go-Bags” on Craftsy, and picked up a lot of great tips there. I just love projects like this – lots of improv fabric play, and a great excuse to visit the scrap bin. I’m excited to pull colors for the next two bags!
