Finishes this week ...

There is a lot going on at Fairholme this week, but much of it is works in progress - we'll have photos of the finished projects as they come.  Here are some finishes from our members this week:

Janice made her gorgeous rope bag in a class with Sandy at Cottage Quiltworks. 
She used 40 jelly roll strips (from a Bali Pop) that she joined prior to the workshop. 
Sandy put them through the bias machine and it was ready for sewing on the day.  
The cord (sashing cord) was supplied. Janice then sewed the rope into the bias 
with a single footed zipper foot and then zig-zagged it together with a walking foot.
It was a fun day but lots of sewing and Janice said that she wished she had  
remembered her multi focal glasses!

Robyn L has finished the large bag she started in Miriam's class 
late last year. The panels are the same on both sides. 
The rose print is fabulous.

Jill has finished her modern hexagon quilt, with blocks from 
Tacha Brueher's book Hex-a-go-go, with appliqued hexi blocks alternating. 
It is hand and machine pieced and hand quilted.
